  • 4 minutes in length, on-going? Or 4 minutes apart (break between)?

  • I've never heard of continual 4 minute contraction, and this is my third pregnancy. I can't say it's indicative of anything wrong, per se, since I'm not a doctor or nurse, but it's certainly not typical.

  • it lasted 4 mins long, ive had a few like that over the past couple days. it will only happen once tho, then next one will be just a min long.
