Quoting SophieKay:" Babies absolutely move during labor, sometimes even more than usual. Can you time the pains? Can you ... [snip!] ... get regular, like 30+ seconds every 3 minutes or your water breaks, then yes, go to the hospital. Otherwise I'd wait a bit."
Quoting March 2013:" my sister gave me this adive the other day: try drinking a really big glass of cold water and walk around ... [snip!] ... they finally stopped. I had them for a little over 2 hours. When I got up and started to walk around the bh got further apart."
Quoting SophieKay:" <blockquote><b>Quoting *KatteyBug*:</b>" I haven't tried timing them yet, but I will. ... [snip!] ... and not the real deal. Try timing them for sure, before and after lying down and having a drink to see if there's a difference."
Quoting *KatteyBug*:" I've tried the walking for like 10 mins but gave up cause it hurt but I'll do that again. She's still moving too and it hurts worse when she moves."
Quoting SophieKay:" <blockquote><b>Quoting SophieKay:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting *KatteyBug*:</b>" ... [snip!] ... is because uterine muscles contracts when dehydrated regardless of whether or not you're in labor, so it's good to rule it out."
Quoting Rebecca Brown*:" Well i always heard it's the real thing when they start to get closer together and you can't walk or talk through the pain, and your supposed to go in when they get five minutes apart."Yeah this! I'd start timing them. Pains get worse and worse and they'll be closer together. You'll know..trust me.
