When to call L&D? Bethy-Poodles Due November 14 (boy); 2 kids; Prosser, Washington 5867 posts

I have been having long contractions, felt sick, run down, heart is beating fast, immense pain in my lower regions with each contraction. Incredibly tired, but can't sleep. All together just don't feel right. I lost my mucus plug on Wednesday. No bloody show, contractions are 6-10 minutes apart, and last anywhere from 45 seconds to 1:30, strongest was 2:04. I don't want to call them and go in for nothing again, do these sound about right?

Sounds like it could be to me. My first contractions when I went into labor started out at about 6-7 minutes apart before they grew strongest. Best of luck to you if it truly is labor!!!

Also, probably TMI, but I went number 2 a whole lot yesterday, like my body was trying to empty.

My pregnancy thing from the dr says to call them with subsequent pregnancies if contractions are 5-7 mins apart. Your labor can go faster the more babies you have.
