  • Honey if you're that worried please go to ER instead of waiting for DR. to call back. Better to be safe than sorry. GL!

  • They could be braxton hicks contractions - but if they are regular I would go to the hospital and make sure its not preterm labor. It's always better to be safe then sorry.

  • if you come back and it's nothing, an easy way to count your contractions is going to contractionmaster.com. click on the "start timing" in the top right hand corner. GL
