How many cms dilated when contractions are 3 minutes apart?
I'm not in labour yet but have been told that when I am to wait until contractions are 3 minutes apart, lasting a minute and after an hour of this being the case and I was just wondering those who have had babies before how many centimeters dilated you were at this stage?
hey my contractions got very bad when they were lasting a min but 5min apart i phoned the hospital to say i was coming but she said no wait til they are 3 min apart! i knew i was passed progressive labour now as i had been in it since 3am and this was 10pm at night! anyway i just turned up at the hospital at 10.45pm and was 5cm dialated
I think all bodys are different but when they are that close your definatly over 3cm dialated and in actual labour
I think it is different with everyone. When i was in labour with my youngest the contractions stayed the same time apart and length but increased a lot in pain. I thought i was ages away but had to go to hospital because of the pain. I was convinced i was being a wimp and would only be a couple of cm. Told DH to insist on an epi!!
I needed to push all the way there and he was born 5 mins after arrival. So for me, timing them was a little misleading.
I went to hospital when mine were about 3 mins apart and lasting a minute. Was like this for 1 hour before i went in, did have any previous contractions before this. I was 5 cm when i arrived at hospital.
