  • Contractions will be longer, stronger and closer together :-)

  • Go in and get checked. Worst case scenario they send you home. Sometimes contractions do not become super strong and close till one hr to 20 mins before giving birth. If you are unsure just go get checked :) Every woman labors differently.

  • sounds like its about time. id go in and get checked if you were 80% and at station -2 on friday and in alot of pain now they may just keep you and see if you need a little kick. either way doesnt hurt.

  • Usually you will feel more pressure will feel contractions closer then 20minutes....but you are def. getting there!! I wish the best to you and your family. A newborn baby is a great gift to get right before Valentine's day
