  • No I would drink quite a bit of water. Lay down and wait until they are about 5 minutes a part at the most.

  • You can always call the hospital and ask them if you should go in. Thats what I did once and they told me to drink water and lay on my left side and if it was false labor it would stop in a couple hours.

  • They should be closer, like 3-5 mins. Apart before you head to the doctors. Jump in a warm shower, see if they become closer. Lay on your left side. Try and take a nap. ( incase you'll be in labor late tonight) good luck mama

  • Prayers honey. Relax for now if you can. You'LLC do great.

  • if in doubt I would go to put your mind at ease. You should not be stressed out over it. I know when you can not talk and about 5-10 mins apart is a good time to go. Also if wait to long and in true labor you might miss the window for pain meds. I would go if you can since the worst that could happen would be that you would be sent home but at least you have peace of mind. And if true labor then you are in a safe place to relax. Hang in there.
