  • it sounds like contractions. to time them you just note the time the pain begins, and then you can judge how far apart they are from there. but yes, if you're having contractions for a hour you need to go to l&d and if the contractions are in a pattern i would notify your ob too

  • if you are not full term (37 weeks) drink a couple large glasses of water and lay on your left side, go in if they don't stop. If you are full term, just keep track of how far apart they are and go in after the hour like l&d says.

  • I would start timing them and if they get closer go to the doctor. If you are really worried about it you can always go to the emergancy room.
