  • I would wait to go to the hospital until your contractions are painful, 4 minutes apart, lasting roughly a minute, and this pattern lasts at least an hour. This is what my doctor told me and it has been great advice!

    There have been several times where my contractions were coming every 4-5mins and I thought it was *time*. Then they stopped after 30mins to an hour later. I've had times where they've been painful too, but I've learned to not get my hopes up without everything checking out to what the doctor said because they have gone away every time.

    An easier way to remember it is 4-1-1 :] Good luck momma!

  • Drink your some water and lay down and see if that helps.

  • I waited until my contractions were 5 minutes apart before I bothered going to the hospital. It was my first kid and I knew it would take a while and it sure did. Even when they were 5 minutes apart I wasn't dialated--it took 2 more days and I finally had a C-Section.
