  • It sounds like labor to me. I would time them and then call your doctor.

  • Don't let your parents decide when you are in labor. They are a great resource for support but women's bodies can vary differently from generation to generation (although there are are similarities, there sure don't have to be!) I would call your OB. When ever you are in doubt call your OB. A nurse or doctor there will have specific directions and questions for you. They can help you rest more at easy if you are not in labor and they can help you stay prepared if you are in labor. I had bad contractions for 9 days before my second son was born. I went every other day to the OB. I even cried when I was pushing on the big day because I was sure they were going to send me home and tell me to wait :) Every woman's body is different but you deserve the peace of mind of talking to a professional... That's what they get paid for!
