  • if they are 3 mins apart yes. they may be braxton hicks but if they aren't and are already that close you should go ahead and go in just to be sure.

  • If you're three minutes apart steady definitely or between three to four I'd definitely go. And you can still go no matter what. It's our doctors jobs to calm our nerves and make sure we're ok as pregnant mommies cause we can't see our innerds like they can.

    Breathe momma don't be afraid. It's almost over. Do you have a partner or friend to be with you?
    Other children or animals to be take care of if you're admitted?

    Baby's here soon. Breathe slowly. Go get checked.

  • depends on your birth plan, if you can handle the pain then stay at home as long as you can, but otherwise go in and baby dust to you :D

  • 3 minutes apart~ for how many hours like that?
    How long is each one~ 20 seconds, 60 seconds?

    What are you doing to cope through?

    Have you tried drinking a LOT of water, eating a healthy snack, rest to slow things down?
