Contractions are getting closer together. user banned
24th Jun '13

But I have no pain what's so ever. It just gets tight and lasts for roughly 45 seconds. I feel a little pressure sorta on my cervix and that's it. But I've been loosing some peices of plug too. I see a dr tomorrow and my midwife to do GBS and get checked. Oh they are 7 mins apart too. And they stated last night and were waking me up here and there and still felt them this morning like every 20 and then 15 and then 10 and then 7 mins.



I just drank a shit ton of water thinking I'm probably dehydrated because we were outside all day and I was drinking water but maybe not as much as I thought.



I just figure if its labor wouldn't it start hurting? These are just BH feeling contractions!

If they are time able like that and getting closer together, I would have already been at the hospital.

Hmm if they get to be about 5 min apart or so, I would probably go get checked just in case since this is your 4th baby. It's not how it worked out for me, but I've heard 4th labors can be very fast.

I hate you and your fancy contractions. Lol. I feel absolutely nothing...but yeah if I were you I'd go. My contractions don't ever hurt until the very end but they do continue to get closer and last longer.

Looks like you might be first after all!



I got to a 6 with DD before my epi (and then c-section) and they never really hurt, they were just more uncomfortable. If they get closer I'd go get checked! GL!

I just feel like it can't be labor. I'm too early! Lol I'm only 36 weeks. I've had like 4 or 5 contractions since posting this. And it felt tighter!!! Eeek!



I'm just trying to keep it easy this morning, if anything starts to get quesionable I will call SO and have him take me in to get checked.



I am not ready!!!!

Go ahead and give your doctor's office a call and see what they say. They might just tell you to keep an eye on it or they might have you go in to be monitored for awhile! :D

I would go ahead and call or go in.



My contractions didn't hurt until I was pretty far into labor. It was just a steady tightening every 5-7 minutes.

I'm gonna wait a little bit to call, I know they will probably tell me to come in! Lol I'm getting nervous.

I would at least call your midwife and see what they want you to do. Maybe she will want you to come in today instead of tomorrow or something just to check you out. With your 4th child, I don't think 36 weeks would be too early! Good luck!! :)

I think I'd be concerned with how closer they are. You're body is pretty used to this, so maybe it's just being nice? Lol idk, but good luck.

Well they have slowed down after drinking like 50oz of water and eating. When I do get one though I really feel a squeeze. I'm thinking I'm just getting ready! And was slightly dehydrated or something.
