I have been having contractions for the last couple hours. Decided to time them and they are approx. 6 minutes apart. They aren't excruciating. The feel like period cramps. Not sure if they are the real thing. I am just waiting to see what happens. Hubby is out, and I have a house full of kids and in the midst of making homemade potatoe salad. Edited to say that I am only (almost) 32 weeks.
I'd call to make sure that it's ok for you to have contractions this early. They might want you to come in so they can stop them. For all you know, and they could tell you, it could be BH at regular intervals.
Well, I haven't phoned, and I haven't been timing them, as my son has a playdate right now. He is going home in about 10 minutes. I have had a few, but I think they might be getting farther apart. I will time them again when the playdate leaves. My OB knows I have been having them. I talked to him about it last week because I have been getting them for awhile. The thing is, I am not sure if it is real contractions or just BH. What's the difference, anyone know?
Ok, playdate just left early because they weren't getting along (fine by me! LOL). So, now I will put my feet up, have a glass of water (what my OB said to do) and time them for real. I will keep you all posted.
