  • 3-5 I think. Sooner if your water breaks. I'd call your doc and get some advice.

  • Very soon! :D How exciting!! I think they say wait until they are 5 min apart, getting closer, and getting stronger, so you're just about there. Don't wait too long, as a second labor is often quicker than the first - you don't wanna deliver on the side of the road! Congratulations!!
