How close together are your contractions? How far are you from the hospital/birthing center?

So? BH can last several hours. I'd rather labor at home and be comfortable for as long as possible.

Are you well hydrated?



Did you have your GBS test?

Yes I've only been drinking water and I've tested for it at 36 weeks I think and it came back negative

Okay. My OB told me to call her when my contractions were 5 mins apart lasting 60 sec for 1 hour.



But of course I could call her anytime with any questions.

Are you using that site I linked? If so, it will tell you the length of the contraction.

If they get too painful or you think you need to go to L&D, then don't hesitate. That is what they are there for.

So? Maybe if she was like 30 weeks it would be a bigger deal but she's 39+ which is completely fine for her to be going into labor.
L&D is going to tell her to stay home until they are much closer together.
