With DD#1 they started at around 5:30am and they felt like a menstrual cramp mixed with a gas cramp. It was uncomfortable but absolutely bearable. The were 3 min apart from the get-go and finally got to where I had to clutch something in anticipation of how strong they *might* get around 1pm, when we finally left for the hospital. But I could still talk through them.
I'm 38 1/2 weeks pregnant with DD#2 and haven't felt a BH contraction yet. Today since about 6 or 7am I've been feeling menstrual-like cramps on & off, and finally I started timing them around 11am. A lot of times they were around 5 min apart for awhile, then it would stop for 30-45 min or so. Then it would start up again. I've been taking it easy today & still felt them, although I haven't felt anything in about 2 hrs now. *whew*!
I called the doc and she said if they're 5 min apart for an hour then go to L&D. I don't know that that's necessary since they keep taking little "breaks". My 39 week appt is tomorrow & I think I'm gonna wait it out.
But what do you think? Were your labor contractions the same? Is baby #2 coming sooner than I think?
