Avatar f tn Im a ftm and had a question about contractions. How long do the actual contractions last? Say they are every 2 minutes, does that mean you have contractions for 2 minutes straight, and then a 2 minute break?
Avatar f tn How do you calculate them or pay attention to how far along they are . Ftm,, 39+5 && i get Braxton Hicks occasionally but i want to be prepared for the real deal especially at this point.
Avatar n tn When measuring how long your contractions last do you time how long your belly is hard or how long the crampy feeling is? And when timing how far apart they are are you timing from start to the start of the next one or the end of the first one to the start of the second one?

Avatar f tn How do u time them does your whole stomach get hard when u have them even though I keep having cramps do I not need to time them if my whole stomach gets hard today I eat spicy food and had sex cause I heard It could make u go into labor
Avatar f tn I'm 39 weeks pregnant and contractions are something I'm thinking about quite often....I'm just wondering when they start how long are they normally apart to begin with and do contractions just start in the belly or do you feel tightening in the belly and down stairs area both at the same time.
Avatar f tn Actual contractions will be more consistent (maybe every 10 mins), they will probably last longer and start to get more intense. The first few can feel like Braxton hicks but not for long :) I've never confused them, somehow I could just tell it was labour.
Avatar f tn I don't know when I'm having contractions either! I just have cramping like I'm about to start, plus back pain. They say that you will know when you're in labor, but I'm so afraid I won't. Some women in my family didn't even know when they were in labor until it was too late to get the epidural.
Avatar f tn How Do You Know Your Having contraction Where is the Pain At ??
Avatar f tn Yahh that sounds like them! Just keep an eye on them though just in case they do start turning into the real deal :) how far along are you?
Avatar f tn Contractions are contractions its when they start to form patterns and are consistent u know its true labor. I agree with the first comment. Personally I can do without the prep of braxton hicks I want the labor to start and I be done with it all.
Avatar f tn What do your first real contractions feel like? Do they start before or after your water breaks?
