I am having constant (not consistant) contractions about 2~3 min. apart.

Its been a very stressful week, and now I think I am going into labor, 2 months early. I am only 30 weeks along but this is my 3rd baby and I know what contractions feel like. Should I go into the er? or just wait 2 c if they stop...

  • Call your OB and see what they suggest. They may tell you to drink a big glass of water put your feet up and see who it goes for a few hours or they may tell you to run right in. I would let them make that call personally.

  • If its not consistant its not real labor. Its more likely braxton hicks

  • I had the same thing at 31 weeks. They gave me a pill to stop them. I would try a glass of water and relaxing first. If you're still contracting then go to the ER just to be safe. Keep us updated, I wanna know everything is ok!

  • Go to L&D or call your OB. If it's preterm labor you don't want to wait too long.

  • I'd put a call into the doctor and take a warm bath while waiting for them to return my call. Most likely, they'll want you to go into L&D to be put on the monitor for a little while to see what is going on.
