  • o ya.....well i got an epi right before i was at an 8....but at that point they were a lot stronger, as they should be. contractions should get consistently stronger and occur more frequently when you're in labor. ( i also had back labor). Luckily if you feel like you're having a hard time there are medications, or relaxation techniques to help, depending on what type of birth you want to have.

  • USUALLY~ contractions become more frequent and more intense over time.
    In early labor they can be all wonky as they try to become established.
    But yes, it usually revvs up.
