I'm wondering how far apart Early labour contractions start at? I've had regular painful cramps and tightened belly since 3am this morning, every FOUR hours! The pain at 3am was almost enough to make me be sick, I was on my hands and knees rocking back and forth on the bed - it felt like a really really bad dose of some kind of poisoning and my guts were crippled - but I went to the toilet and just pee'd!! I've had non painful contractions inbetween, walking makes it tighten more - but the last contraction (TMI Sorry!) at 11am which had pain made me go No.2 and it was real soft. Is every 4 hours just completely my imagination?
