  • Are the contractions coming with any regularity? Are they coming and going? You can time them periodically, and when they get close together (maybe 7 minutes from the start of one to the start of another), call the doc. Good luck!

  • Are the contractions coming regularly or are they just sporadic? I was always told to drink a big glass of water and see if that helps. If they are just sporadic contractions and aren't coming in any specific pattern...I would just call the doc and let them know what's happening. However if they are coming regularly 5 mins apart or less, you should go to the hosptial.

  • I'd say wait.
    4 - 1 - 1
    Contractions are 4 minutes apart
    contractions are 1 minute long
    and they are like this for 1 hour.

    This is the earliest time you want to go in.
