349463 tn?1333575176 This might be it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> all day an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed out at 7 minutes this morning now 3 to 4 min. Waiting it out at home for another hour as per the dr and then going to Labor and delivery. Will update and let you know if its false labor or the real deal! Oh checked at the dr this morning about 3cm! They said I don't need steriods as she is just shy of full term.
Avatar f tn I'm 31 weeks along and my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> (real or not who knows) are an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> and a half <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>, mostly irritating more than anything. My question is have any mom's had the hour and a half ones turn into hour, then continue on down to full blown labor? Doctor said it was a huge possibility but didn't think baby would make an early arrival which was my number one concern. Luckily I'm not on bed rest, yet...
Avatar f tn With my first son I felt a little pressure come and go in my lower stomach after it wouldn't stop I went to the doctor (I was only at week 32) and found out I was having an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> 3 minutes apart had my son 11 hours later. With my second son they felt like small period cramps at first then about an hour later I was in tears from the pain had him 1 hour later at 35 weeks.
Avatar f tn I just turned 38 weeks today I've been getting bh all week and since yesterday I've been getting cramps all day along with the bh they don't stop but still so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span> at lease one every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> but not consist I'm so ready for labor tho I'm hoping he makes his appearance soon
Avatar f tn 5-1-1. Five minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>, last for a minute each, and go for at least one hour. Good luck!
Avatar f tn If it stops, it's not the real thing.
Avatar n tn Okay im due January 20th ill be 37 weeks tuesday and the night before i had 4 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> that i counted before i went to sleeo then i had 3 mord today, however they were an hour apart, all the braxton hicks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> ive had were never that many should i be worried?
349463 tn?1333575176 I've been having <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> for about two hours now. The last three were 7 minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>. Only a few have hurt. Mostly feels like BH,but with pain that wraps around my lower back. It also hurts by my bladder. Like just above my pubic bone. I'm not sure what it is. I really really really don't want to take a procordia unless I have to. Hum... trying to figure out how much longer I should wait before taking the pill. Baby is kicking away between an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan>. Maybe she an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> tell me...
Avatar f tn Once they're a minute long or longer, coming at least every five minutes for an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> or more, you should be good to head to the hospital.
10261762 tn?1424374202 I do have some BH sometimes but its not more than one an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> (at least that I notice.) I do however get abdominal cramps but they last for like 30 minutes or an hour, straight They don't come and go it's just a constant cramp so maybe not the same as what you are talking about. Those ab cramps do wake me up though. (31 wks here.
Avatar f tn Mine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed the Sunday evening and my daughter was born the Tuesday morning at 7am. They an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed at 2 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span> and gradually got closer together. I was 40+6 the day she was born. Mine were usually about 45 seconds once they got closer together (10 minutes apart).
Avatar f tn They say to follow the 511 rule. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> five minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>, lasting one minute, for an hour. Idk if you'd want to wait that long since you're only 34 weeks. Try walking, changing position, warm shower if it hasnt gone away then you might want to go to the hospital.
7019649 tn?1396796117 Mine were never 10 minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span> they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed at like 4 minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span> and I went from 4 cm to 7 in an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span>!
4476031 tn?1374204274 no harm going to hospital to check how far dilated you are and they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> also see if it is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> or not, but they say its not labour until <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> are like few mins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>, but if theres pressure then that could be real <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> you are 39weeks, okay to have a baby now... just go check it out... no water break?
614343 tn?1258045119 My doc doesnt seem to concerned about it. He told me at first no more then 4 an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span>. Then at my appt he changed it to, no closer then 10 mins. apart that last up to an hour... what do you all think about this.
Avatar f tn I have an appt in about an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> with my dr. I called Tuesday and they said if it got to be heavier or changed to red to go in right away.
800427 tn?1324949319 then i got my 5th one about 15 minutes after the 4th one which would put me at 5 <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> last 20 seconds each in about a 55-60 minute period. i remained in bed and drank my water and had about 3-4 more of the sharp stabbing pains in my vagina but no more an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan>. after an hour of laying in bed and no an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> i decided to get up and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan> doing things (dishes, laundry...etc.) while bouncing back and fourth to the computer ..the usual. that brings me to now...
Avatar f tn really they say you're only truly in labor when you have your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, i think it's 5? minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>.. so really i'd wait until they are about 10 minutes or less <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span> to really worry about it too much.. and if they persist just time them from the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan> of the first, to the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan> of the next and maybe just write it down/keep note and just keep an eye on it.
Avatar f tn I've an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed bleeding a little now too.
Avatar f tn But it sounds as if you might be having BH instead of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> which don't do anything. I get regular <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> about 3-5 hours a day about 10 minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apart</span>. I would just time them if they are 10 minutes apart or less call your doctor.
1083673 tn?1388892238 Good luck! Did they stop or slow down at night while you slept? I had <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 10 min apart for a week now, they stop/slow while I sleep and sometimes after I eat. with my first I had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> 10 min apart and 24 hours later had the baby. Every labor is different, hopefully your's won't last 10 min for ever! Keep us updated!!!
2177836 tn?1355177477 They lasted all day about every 30 minutes till 2am and finally stopped. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed again at 6 am for about an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> and than stopped. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>startan>ed once again at 9 and had them about every 15 minutes, the last couple of ones were times at 10:49, 10:53, 10:58, and 11:08. I get up and walk around to see if they go away but I still feel them while walking or even standing. I haven't gone into l&d cause I'm not sure if there consistent enough plus I haven't lost my mucus plug, I'm 38 and 5.
Avatar n tn I really understand how you feel, im 24 wees and ive been having them too and they have really scared me at times. I'll get them on and off one day and then not at all the next. I have been drinking lots of water though and i think if you are bent or hunched over doing somthing it doesnt help. I've just tried to lie down when i get them and stretch out.
