Beverly, my contrax with Alexa were ranging from 3 to 6 to 9 minutes apart the 3rd (?) time I called L&D. The advice the nurse gave me was "I would know' when I needed to come in. She said if I could still handle it at home then to stay. An hour or so later I "knew." They still weren't regular, but by the time we got into the car and headed to the hospital (about 15min away) they were every 3 min and I was 6cm.
The nurses kept telling me that with my labor pattern i very well only could've been 1-2cm, at least that's what they said on the phone. Fortunately they were wrong!
IDK, I'm probably not being the most helpful, but that's how it went with Alexa. There came a point where I just knew I needed to head in even though the contrax weren't too regular.
eta -- i just saw I posted nearly 2 hours after you did, so just sending you some more good vibes
