  • If you're only 30 weeks you may want to head over, I think it'd probably be better for them to get them stopped now rather than later.

  • At only 30 weeks, call your doctor and head for the hospital.

  • i would say 3-5 minutes apart. GOOD LUCK!!! if you do end up going into labor this early that you and the baby will be perfectly fine due to that you are only 30 wks.. GOOD LUCK again..... : )

  • Call your doctor. S/he should have told you when to come in; since you haven't had this talk yet, you definitely need to call about this one, especially if you're having consitent contractions this early.
