I know if you have more than 5 contractions in an hour you should call your dr. Is that just because of preterm labor? or is that even after you are full term? My last to kids were both preemie so this is something i never dealt with at this point and I don't remember 10 years ago for my oldest.

No that is normal for us this far along, 6 is even fine, call when they are consistent 5 min apart (or under of course) for at least an hr or two

At this point there is no reason to call unless you are in active labor. So the 511 rule.

I don't recall it being 5 contractions, I thought it was contracts that are coming 5 minutes apart, lasting 1 minute over 1 hour or something like that.
