SIL 38 wks started with contractions 30 min apart within a day felt them 6 1/2 min apart..

She assumed they weren't real contractions but they are happening every 6 1/2 minutes now. I know every child is different and her baby will come out when it is ready but for those of you who started out at 6 1/2 min apart about how long did it take til you went to the hospital? Gave birth?

  • I went as to the hospital when my contractions were 5 mins apart. I have my son about 12 hours later. It was over 24 hours from the beginning of my contractions.
