I have not been to this stage yet, but it sounds like labor to me. I wouldn't go to the hospital yet because the contractions are not close enough, but definately sounds like labor. Just get stuff ready to go and rest. You may be having your little one today.

7 to 15 minutes probably isn't labor. Maybe pre-labor.



I had contractions 7-15 mins apart for almost 18 hours. lol



When you get to where it's really hard to breath thru the contractions.....then go to the hospital:)

Mine were 10-12 minutes with my first when they started. I waited for about 2 hrs and went to my scheduled dr app. By the time I got there they were 4-6 minutes apart. Youll know when its time. Just remember to breath and do as much laboring at home as you can, that way when you get to the hospital you have the meds and its smooth sailing from then lol. Good luck to you
