I'm feeling contractions today but being my first baby, I'm not sure if these are beginning labor or BH. I've been spotting all day and called L&D, they just said to time things for a while and come in when they are constant and 5-7 minutes apart.
Well... I've been experiencing 40-45 seconds of contracting every 6 minutes. Except it will skip every third contraction and go twice as long without one. I'm confused.
Mine were very consistent.
Never skipped one as you put it.
they should be consistant for an hour
Lay on your left side and drink some water. If they slow down or stop it's false labor.
I'm in the same boat as you momma, this shit sucks :( The last two nights or so I've had contractions 4-5 mins apart, some weren't painful and some were, but sometimes it would stop and be 10 or 15 mins until I got another one. Found out thismorning that I'm only dilated to 1 and a half cm. :(
