I have been having the painless contractions all day long. They are definitely more frequent than 4 per hour (I counted 7 and 8 in two different hours) which is what most people say is "normal". For the most part as long as I am sitting they aren't nearly as bad but I can feel some of them. As soon as I stand up to do anything they intensify. I've had a couple of the RN's at work feel my stomach when it's tightening and they agree that I'm definitely having contractions. My question is should I call the doctor and see what he suggests? I just don't want to feel like a bother if these are totally normal at this point but I also don't want to let it go and throw myself into labor on accident somehow. I guess I just don't want people to see me as over-reacting and being "one of those people" if that makes sense.
