Ha ha ha ha! Good for her!
thanks ladies. Im still at 12 min but (TMI) "clearing out", big egg sized globs of mucus, and very sharp. When i walk they are closer together. When do i call? my water hasn't broken yet...
So hard to say. I've known people to be contracting that far apart for close to 3 days before giving birth. Your water may not break at all until closer to the birth. You could always call to tell them what's going on and see if they want you to go in. I'd be inclined to wait a bit longer. but you never know!
yeah i was thinking like 8 min consistently because it is a bit of a drive...unless my water breaks of course.
Everyone is so different!! My contractions typically start 5-7 minutes apart, so I definitely don't get "excited" until they have been 3 minutes apart for an hour or two first. I'd say the best gage is usually how STRONG the contractions are. When you can no longer walk or talk through them, then you are getting close (maybe 2-4 hours at that point).
Glad you were able to squeeze in a pedi :) Ugh about the continuing contractions and not knowing when to go. I don't have any good advice there. Thinking of you and best wishes for labor to pick up and go smoothly.
11 min now, Closer when I "waddle" the bad ones I can't walk through any more.
Awesome! You are getting there. I guess I'd wait until they are under 10 minutes apart and then head in, unless the pain gets ridiculous!
