  • Are you asking about how many contractions? Each doctor is different. My doctor told me to call when I was steadily having 3 contractions every 20 minutes.

  • If your talking bout contrations that isnt that many so i would say neither. If its BH then you really dont have to worry.

  • You don't do anything for BH. When you're having regular, steady contractions (typically 5 minutes apart, lasting one minute long) for at least an hour, then you call.
