They're getting stronger! Eva Marie's Mama 1 child; Albany, New York 728 posts

These contractions are now starting to hurt. I'm so scared that I'm going to be too late making it to the hospital, but they're not 5 min apart yet. The first strongest one I had was at 11:17 then again at 2:00 and its still hurting and it's now 2:28 I don't think they're supposed to last that long. And when the one at 2:00 started I got bad poop cramps and went a lot. Idk when to call the doctor because everyone says to wait for them to be 5 min apart for an hour. My water hasn't broken yet either but I know that it might not. Should I call now, or wait?

Does it feel like a rolling contraction? A contraction the gets stronger and weaker but doesn't go away for a long period of time?

When I had rolling contractions I went in and I was 5cm dilated and I was admitted. They had to break my water.

How long of a period of time between the contractions and can you talk threw them?

It's kind of hard to talk through them

Wait until they are closer. I waited until they were 2-7 minutes in between. It was like that for 6 hours before I went in and I was having contractions for 4 days. Try to sleep now while you can and make sure your bag is packed. Good luck :)

Ok, thank you! I'm about to go to bed so hopefully I can sleep
