  • Yeah, wait... if they are true braxton hicks, they'll be random times, or will stop

    If it is real contractions, I'd still wait because 20 minutes apart is way to far away from eachother to even go to the hospital...

    my dr gave me a "411 plan"

    4 minutes apart for at least 1 hour.....Hm...im sorry i forget the last 1.....

    can anyone help me out? LOL!! sorry

  • You should never be CONCERNED> Its labor... not some bad infection....lol.
    And I was in "false labor' for a month, every day, many times acting like real labor... so dont listen to people saying they will be random if it isnt real labor....
    If it is, however, take it easy, let your doctor know, adn STAY HOME> No reason to be going in until things pick up anyways.

    Good luck!

  • Okay, correction they CAN be irregular... obviously they can be regular as well because she is having that. UNLESS they get closer and closer together.
