Getting Contractions More Regular

2 Replies
bl - November 15

I am very confused. This is my second baby. With my first my contractions started 3-5 min. apart and I was only in labor for about 5 hrs. I am pregnant w/ my second (due in 3 days) and I have been having contractions all morning. The problem is they are 8, 9, 10 min. apart sometimes. Then they will be 12 or 13 min apart. Every now and then it will be 20 min. between contractions like I missed one between. They are not getting closer together or more regular. Is there a way to make them closer?

That was the way the whole first 14 hours of my labor was. They started at 2:30 am and were 10 min. apart all day, with an occasional 20 min span, and then I would go with a 4 min span sometimes but they were not regular. I could tell they were real contractions, but I went to the hospital at 2:30 pm that day, he was 6 days overdue, and I was 3cm. Within 2 hours or so they finally started getting more intense and closer together, at 6pm they broke my water and they were non stop and painful, I did not have anything for pain. He was born at 9:27 pm with only about 5 or 6 pushes. I walked and walked all morning to get the party started, but it did not make them come faster. Good luck!!!

You are probably having braxton hicks
