Started pretty much every 30 mins then i would go 30, 10, 20 and just random combos of those. In between Im getting conatant backache and lots of BH. Im currently about 25 mins however I still keep having the odd one after 10 mins. I feel completely drained, they arent so so bad but when I get them I cant stand up straight. Eurgh will they just get closer together over night?

I've had this for the last 48 hours and my heart sinks at the thought of another night with no sleep. Hope yours speed up!

I had this for 22 hours, only got to 3cm. Was overdue so got induced in the end which sped everything up. I went to the hospital and got oramorph and cocodamol to get me some sleep. I had about 50 baths with my back under the hot water which helped. Xx

Mine were about that far apart (between 9 and 4 mins) when I decided to go to hospital. That was at 7pm, DS was born just before 3am 🙂 Even the midwife didn't believe I was in proper established labour and was about to send us home. It was just because of the pain I begged to be checked and whoop! 10 cms. Don't want to add any confusion but just wanted to also say that sometimes contractions are never regular but you are still very much in labour. My second was the same.

For me deciding when to go to hospital was more about the intensity of the pain combined with increasing but not even regularity.
