  • I suggest you call your OB - (i'm the first poster... didn't mean to hit the anon button)
    Let them know you went to the hospital - they said it came ever 4-5 minutes, and now you think they're closer. I really advise trying to time them, even if it's just.. for about 5 minutes.
    I had back and stomach contractions - and I managed to time them, agonizing... but it was my proof! :]

    The OB will probably suggest you go to the hospital - but you can always swing it by them first. Good luck.
