Common Questions and Answers about 4 contractions in one hour


1301836 tn?1305625415 so ive been awake since 4 am, contractions on and off but nothing that really says yep this is it. I feel very uncomfortable infact just walking my youngest into school i didnt want anyone to stop me to talk to me because i felt so uncomfortable and the pressure below was not good, all i wanted was to get her into school and get home! im going to have a warm drink and sit on my birthing ball and do well not much actually as i am tired from being awake...DH is in Warmlee so not far away...
915119 tn?1341952589 Also she told me to go into labor and delivery if I get more than 4 in an hour and I have gotten more than 4 in one hour but the hospital is a little over an hour away and I don't want to go and get sent back home. What is your opinion?
Avatar n tn I've been told to call my midwife when I'm having contractions that last one minute, are 4 minutes apart(finish to start) for one hour.
Avatar f tn Today im 31 weeks & i keep having braxton hicks and ive had more than 4 in one hour. Their a little painfull. Should i be worried? Am i just dehyderated? What can or should i do?
Avatar f tn Okay, so Iv had atleast five contractions in the last hour and a half, about 8-10 minutes apart.... but they I haven't had one in about 20 minutes.... can it be the start of labor???? I'm 38 weeks!
10261762 tn?1424374202 I believe if you have more than 4 in one hour that's when its recommended to call your doctor? I do have some BH sometimes but its not more than one an hour (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 My dr said I shouldn't have more than 10bh per hour, so you may want to call your dr or head to L&D
Avatar f tn They're pretty sporadic. Not consistent really at all. Like, I'll get one that will last about 4-5 minutes then it will stop. Then 20 or so minutes later I'll get another. And it's been like that all day. But for the last hour, I haven't gotten any more. So maybe just my body preparing, I guess?
Avatar f tn I have an appt in about an hour with my dr. I called Tuesday and they said if it got to be heavier or changed to red to go in right away.
7019649 tn?1396796117 Mine were never 10 minutes apart they started at like 4 minutes apart and I went from 4 cm to 7 in an hour!
Avatar n tn Okay im due January 20th ill be 37 weeks tuesday and the night before i had 4 contractions that i counted before i went to sleeo then i had 3 mord today, however they were an hour apart, all the braxton hicks contractions ive had were never that many should i be worried?
800427 tn?1324949319 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...i just had two more painful (but not too painful) ones 20ish seconds long...10 minutes apart. and now one more as i am typing about 16 minutes after the last one.
614343 tn?1258045119 My doc doesnt seem to concerned about it. He told me at first no more then 4 an hour. 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 If they are constant and more than 4 in one hour, call your doctor and tell them. I'm 28 weeks today, and dealt with this at 23 weeks.
Avatar f tn IM Currently 34 Weeks Pregnant, Baby Is In Position As Of This Morning When My OB Doctor Checked. I Keep Having These Sharp Sudden pains In My Lower Back And One Side Of My Stomach. Like My Stomach Is Getting Hard And The Back Pain Is Sudden In That It Startled Me Into Almost Needing To Stop Everything Till It Ends. They Are Coming In Waves Lasting A Few Moments And Then Will Stop And Return 4 Or 5 Mins Later For Roughly 45 Minutes Total. Anybody Else Experience This?
Avatar f tn A good rule of thumb to know when they're real and to head to the hospital is 4 minutes apart, lasting 1 minute each, for 1 hour. My contractions stetched into my back and gradually got more intense.
Avatar f tn Contractions are when your stomach tightens. If you touch your stomach when you have one it will be rock hard.
4476031 tn?1374204274 Ive been tryin to time cus ill have like 4-5 cramps in an hour but then it will stop for about an hour nd come bak. Srry for the long post but im not sure if these are contractions or not. My whole pregnancy i havent had one BH or contraction so im not sure what to look for.
223520 tn?1221443883 i started getting them around 28 weeks and it varies from 2-10 per day but the doctor said dont worry unless they get stronger and get more than 6 in one hour. otherwise it is normal. at about 32 weeks i could get cramps for most of the night but they were steady and not getting any stronger. the doctor said drink some extra water. the pressure down there is pretty normal too. A bit off topic but...
1906916 tn?1333363494 but they seem to be more constant than comming and going...could these be contractions? i'm 38 weeks 4 days. this is also the first time this has happened after sex.
7913021 tn?1418052220 Starting to get contractions & they are most def the real ones! I get one every hour so far for the last 2 hours! I'm hoping this is the real deal but oh my gosh it fric.kin hurts! I almost cried the last one!
Avatar n tn and then went on to explain that if my water broke or if I had 4 or more contractions in an hour to head on into the ER. It seems pretty direct and from my 1st pregnancy I know I can be at 2 cm for a LONG time, however she seemed pretty sure that I'll be meeting my little boy soon. My question is this: what am I looking for with contractions? I've done research and it seems to describe it as strong menstrual cramps, diarrhea, irritation, hard belly, hip pain, back pain, etc.
639543 tn?1297031234 You may finally be in early labor but you'll know better if you start timing it. If you have 4 in an hour you are definitely in early labor. Go to L&D if the contractions are 10min appart.
Avatar n tn I think typically if you have more than 5 contractions in an hour you should call your doctor. Is this her first baby? How far along is she?
Avatar f tn Sometimes I couldn't tell where one contraction ended and where one began and it all got a bit much to deal with until I got into the water in the birth pool - then the contractions had a clearer rest/space in between and I could relax and recover as I needed. The warm water also seemed to make them less painful (I love waterbirth!). This more intense stage lasted for about 2 hours.
