Contractions every 15 minutes

Common Questions and Answers about Contractions every 15 minutes


I am 34 weeks pregnant, doctor told me yesterday that my cervix was very thin for 34 weeks and today I have noticed cervical pain that has gotten worse throughout the day and now I am able to time the pain every 15 minutes. I don't think they are contractions though. The pain is a little bit above my pubic bone and just feels like a sharp pain for about 5 seconds and then stops. I also noticed that I had spotted once while going #1 but the blood was only on the toilet paper.
yesterday i went in for my scheduled appointment and they hooked me up to the monitors and i had 1strong contraction and one small contraction in about 20 minutes. Today i noticed them every 15 minutes and im hoping they get stronger by tomorrow. This process is soooooo long!
Only if they get stronger and are timed evenly apart. For example you have one every 10 minutes apart or every 5 min. Apart. If it's on and off and one is 20 min. Then next is 10in. Then 15 apart.
Keep an eye on it. ... They usually do start every half hour and t then decrease to every 15-20,10 minutes, etc. If they're getting more painful, longer and closer together you know it's the real deal. Good luck and best wishes!
I have been having contractions that actually hurt now but they aren't anywhere near close together probably 15-20 minutes apart. Is there anything I can do to get some relief? I can't take a bath because my daughter will want in lol.
If they come every 10 minutes and not every 10, then 15, 20, then it's false labor. Try drinking water and laying on your left side and timing them.
So come to find Out i am having contractions they are about ten to 15 minutes apart and they are not happening all The time What should i do i know i am asking a lot of questions but i am a ftm and have no one to talk to or ask
I've been having tight sharp pains on and off since yesterday at 11am. They lasted all day about every 30 minutes till 2am and finally stopped. Started again at 6 am for about an hour and than stopped. started 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.
They last for a few hours and are anywhere from 15 to 8 minutes apart and are somewhat painful, but haven't progressed yet, so I think its just our bodies preparing for labor.
I was in labor for 5 days with my son, Having contractions anywhere from 3-15 minutes apart and they were painful contractions so I couldn't feel him moving at all.
then i got my 5th one about 15 minutes after the 4th one which would put me at 5 contractions 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 contractions. after an hour of laying in bed and no contractions i decided to get up and start doing things (dishes, laundry...etc.) while bouncing back and fourth to the computer ..the usual. that brings me to now...
My contractions started out with just my tummy tightening, which would last a minute or two and then it would go soft again, then about 15-25 minutes would pass and it would happen again. It did that for like 2 days and it was very noticeable, not painful though.
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.
I have been having painful contractions 15 mins apart for almost 12 hours.... They just stay 15 mins... O well I want the lil guy to wait till the weekend at least so then he will be full term... The pain is getting irritating tho.... Cant wait to get checked on wed....
Been in same position had premature labor stopped at 33 weeks and been having contractions and everything since. But I've been checked every appt. I was 3cm 60% effaced Monday and still there yesterday morning. I would ask your doctor when they plan to check yoyr cervix if they don't want you going past 3cm. But it sounds as if you might be having BH instead of contractions which don't do anything. I get regular contractions about 3-5 hours a day about 10 minutes apart.
I do have some good news! I am now having contractions again! They have been every 15 minutes lasting for about40-50 seconds each. The last one was only 7 minutes ater the one before but wasn't very strong. That doctor's office pissed Max off and he wants out to yell at him! lol I also must say that my dh is so wonderful! His job is in graphic designing and engineering. Actually the company he works for makes body bags and bags for medical workers and his part is to do the logo's.
No real heartburn, no vomitting, not even nausea. Some times as often as every 15 minutes, some times, hours between. I have taken maalox and such, seems to help for awhile. Severity ranges from as low as a 2 and as high as a a 7 or even an 8. I have had constant diarreah. Food doesn't irritate, in fact, sometimes helps. The most bothersome thing is it is actually causing alot of discomfort, as well as a back ache at times. I have no blood in stools. I am perplexed.
What I have been timing I have been having them roughly every 6 minutes for like 15 seconds and they are not painful at all...just really tight and uncomfortable. My son is still moving too..not crazy moving, but subtle moves here and there. Also the tightness is my whole stomach and not specifically my lower abdomen.
I think I had about 15 of them in about 40 minutes! I was soooo scared! My husband was at work a half an hour away and my 13 year old brother is here for a visit and I had a 4 year old in bed sleeping. The baby's room is all set up but is a mess because of the painting that isn't finished and the house was messy and I'm just not completely prepared. So those contractions really threw me for a loop.
I'm 15w as of yesterday and about an hour ago I noticed I was cramping REALLY bad... and within 10 minutes they were coming every 2 minutes. I realized it was dehydration and contractions from it. I've always had problems drinking water and had a few bh ctx when pregnant with TJ because I got dehydrated from HG. I drank 40oz of gatorade and they are easing up.... but it's being complicated by my back pain also.
they take up from 10-15 minutes and last 50sec according to my contraction timer....
well all day I've been having them at first the were painful last about 15-20 min. Every hour and now they're down to 10 minutes long every 20 minutes apart . but they're not as painful as before .. Is that normal !?
I would go get checked if I were you. Might be it. !!!!!!!!
About 2 nights ago I had BH contractions every 15 minutes for about an hour. Is this normal? It went away though after and has been normal ever since. Anyone else experience this?
I had this the other day they lasted about 5 minites and cam every 15 mins for an hour... i phoned the hospital who advised me they were just BH.. everyone is different though!
They were comming about every 13-15 min on the dot. I tried laying on my left side a drinking water and they seemed to lighten up in intensity but still came about every 13-15 min. That was about 7 hours ago and I am still having them. So I guess the question is is this something I should be concerned about?
I'm 20 weeks pregnant now and since last night I have been having pains in my abdomen that go away and come back every 10-15 minutes (it gets tight when it comes) & I feel it to my back. It hurts when I stand,walk... etc. and when I don't feel the tightness I still hurt like I'm sore until out comes back couple hrs later. what can it be?
Last Night I didn't get much sleep because every so often I would wake up with a sharp cramping pain. I've already started to lose my plug since Tuesday . Are these contractions? Should I be worried?
p.s. my contractions when i got to the hospital were every 5 minutes lasting 1-2 minutes and the doctor had to break my water. it never broke on it's don't use that as a measure of whether or not it's real!
