If i began to bleed while having them, go to the hospital, or if I had 4 in
a half hour
period or 6 in
an hour's period, then go. But the one consistent thing they told me is taht the contractions need to be regular. like 5-10 minutes apart consistently. i have quite a bit of contractions... one comes, the next can be 6 minutes later, then 10 minutes, then 5 minutes, etc. once they get on a more regular cycle, then make sure you give yourself enough time to get to the hospital.
