contraction question

some info first:
I'm trying to stay home as long as possible
but I do have a closer place I can labor if I need to get going
hospital is an hour away, my husband is at work,15 min away and I will need to get ahold of my friend( whose children I'm watching today)
it's my 4th baby, third vaginal, I'm going for a vbac

okay

contractions have been 2-9 min apart, varying intensity since about 9... it's 12 now

they started out about 20-40 seconds in length
the last six have been 2-4 min apart, I have to really breathe and try to keep from tensing up, they have been 45 sec, to a min in length( my son was also nursing and just now fell asleep, so we'll see if they continue that pattern)they continue even when I adjust my position, get on all fours or stand up/ move around

I kind of feel like they are too short to be affecting any change?

thoughts? 

I'm currently stuck on the couch between my two year old and the 5 month old who are both asleep... going to try to get out from under them so I can move around again some more to see if anything changes

Sounds like early labor to me.

Btw, my conractions with my fourth lasted 45 seconds when i was in transition, i knew it was transition by thr intensity of them, do you cant always depend on the length of them.

I agree. Get comfortable, let hubs know where you are, and try to relax.
