I think I'm in labor NEW UPDATE

I woke up around 8:00 and had to go to the bathroom, well I went potty I had a contraction and then about 20 minutes later had another contraction so I grabbed my husband's stop watch and started timing them. I've been having contractions every 15-18 minutes for 3 hours now and they are starting to get stronger. I'm 38 weeks pregnant now and have had two children before so I'm assuming it's time. Hope I can have this baby super soon. I'll let everyone know what's going on before I leave for the hospital.


NEW UPDATE: I'm leaving for the hospital soon, they've been coming at 8-10 minutes apart for the last 5-6 hours since I last updated and they have been strong contractions so I know this is for real. I want to wait until they get to about 5 minutes apart before I leave, the hospital is 20 minutes away.

Good luck! How were your previous labors? With it being #3 and how tricky they can be after each one, I would wait until you are uncomfortable and they are closer to 5 minutes apart. My last 2 labors have been so darn tricky.

Thanks. My first I was in labor from 8 in the morning until I delivered a little after 12am so 16 hours, then my second I was in labor from 2 in the morning until I delivered a little after 4pm so 14 hours. I guess if the trend continues this one will be 12 hours but so far it's been almost 6 hours.
