  • My doctor told me to come in when they were 10 mins. apart, but the doctor I had w/my 1st pregnancy, told me 3-5 mins apart. I think it all just depends on what your doctor says. With me, I had to be induced with both at 41 weeks.

  • I would do the 3-4 but that is just me. With my son I was induced so I don't know what the doc would have said. With this baby I'm not even far enough along to worry about it! I'll bump though :)
