    I haven't had bub yet either but time for 30 minutes to establish a pattern wait say an hour then do it again to see if they are getting worse - but maybe you should call the hospital if I think your in labour

    If they are every 15-20 mins, start timing to see if they are getting closer and longer. See if you can get a phone app to do it- much easier than trying to remember, count and write down. If you are in labour, good luck!!

    Oh no! I am not in labour! Was just wondering when, i have been having heaps of BH since friday...some felt very real almost like period pains an BH combined. I had my cervix checked on Friday and things are moving but still fine but I think it triggered some cramping. I am just going histerical with the not knowing what to do thing!

    I only start when they were noticeably close. I woke up at 4am and felt a few, and though hmm. Got up, got dressed and thought hmm. So started timing them and 4 mins, I thought ok!

    I wouldn't bother until they get fairly close, maybe 10-15? But that's just me. it would drive me nuts to be counting into the 20's! I'd just be getting on with life and waiting for the real stuff to kick in

    To be honest I didn't notice mine at all until thy were 3 mins apart. I woke up at 1am and they lasted forever an were close, but I'd you do notice them earlier, I would only time from when you get at about 10 mins.
