I have been having contractions between 7-10 minutes apart for just at an hour now.... Thing is only the tightening is painful. It isn't sharp or really cramp like, if that makes sense? Any ideas??

I have had those too, but only get as close 14 minutes apart...

Early labor isnt always painful, so maybe you're getting the show on the road in an easy way

I agree, could be early labor!

I personally would wait and see if they get closer or more painful, but if you feel like you should def call your dr (which I'm sure you already had the common sense to do lol)

Maybe you are getting an early arrival!

I don't have a lot to add but I would try to move around, drink water, and just see what happens. You might be on your way to a Dec 22nd baby! (which is an awesome birthday by the way )

Hmmm, keep timing them...remember the 5-1-1 rule (5 min apart, 1 min long, for 1 hour) - that's what my doc says is the "magic" time to go in!

I personally am hoping to labor at home as long as possible if I don't have to be induced. They could be braxton hicks or the real deal, but one way or the other you will find out real soon . I hope you are able to keep us posted!

Be careful though and be sure to listen to your body, I had a nurse I was working with at a clinic tell someone that and the baby was born in her living room

Being a nurse I know other nurses and doctors get a little jaded and will often poo-poo peoples concerns, you're your own best advocate.


PS - I swear I didnt tell that story to scare anyone, I am just a big believer in listening to your body, lol.

Yay! Sounds like it could be the beginning I have no experience here but like Karin said all I've been told is 5-1-1 good luck and let us know what happens!

You'd think being a nurse it would be helpful in pregnancy, I think it's the opposite! I've seen/ heard too much over the years and it just adds to my worrying!!!
