wait until you can time them.. Walk, shower, bounce on a yoga ball. tyr to enjoy the time you have left before baby comes.
Keep yourself hydrated. Also if your having contractions time them.
When I got period like cramps, I went into labor the next day.
i had them for 3 weeks before my water broke and i went into labor. i went over 4 days
my contractions felt like period cramps when I was in labor. Time them!
I was having period like cramps, didn't think anything of it. Went to the doctor the next day, I was 7cm dilated. Still had the cramps, once I realized they were labor cramps, I tried to time them and they were NOT consistent. NONE of mine were, the nurses were baffled. But, I had my son 2.5 hours later. Not scaring you, just telling you my situation. I would go to L&D or call your OB to be safe. Good luck!
