  • When the pains r every 5 minutes. Call your doctor and ask about it. They all have answering services that will reach the doctor for u.

  • I agree with above. Call the doc if they are every few mins apart. They should be able to tell you whether you should go in or not.

    good luck

  • They always told me that if you have more than 4 contractions in an hour you need to get checked out. Have you tried drinking a glass of water and laying on your left side to see if they subside?
