Sporadic Contractions?!

35ks and my contractions aren't "regular" this is what they have been doing :
8:55,9:15, 9:45, 10:00, and 10:25. Should I call my doc and let them know what is going on or just keep track of them???
Thanks,
Shawna

  • My doctor told me if i had 4 or more in an hour to call him. If you're gut tells you something is up then definitely call. Good luck!

  • I'd wait it out. mine was about the same like that for a few weeks prior to going into labor. you should have another appt. with your doc. soon anyway. they'll check you.

  • Since you're at 35 wks... a little bit on the early side... yeah, I'd call. They may want to admit you for a few hours just to do some monitoring & check your cervix.

    Sporadic contractions is how labor starts. I was in labor for 3 days with my first-born. You know how they say to wait until they're consistently 5 min apart? Yeah... I did that. By the time I got to the hospital, I was dilated to nearly 7 cm already.

    Being 35 wks, you're probably looking at a smaller baby... a little easier descent into the birth canal ---- 10 cm might sneak up on you.

    G'luck!

  • Drink plenty of water! Those could be Braxton Hicks Contractions....... I started getting into false labor w/my first and last child-because I didn't drink enough water.......... Hope that helps!

  • I know what braxton hicks are and these aren't it. These stop me in my tracks and cause me to double over and start crying!! They are the real thing
