Re: Need Advice On When To Go In

How far are you from the hospital? If you're close, I would wait until you are feeling more certain. How long was your first labor?

I would say, if it were me, i would go to my birth center, because I had a very fast first birth, and I anticipate something similar this time. I also went straight from ctx every 6 minutes and talking just fine to every 2 minutes in about 5 minutes time, but this is very unusual. Most women find that it's best to go in when they start to focus more inward and feel like they can't take it any more...generally when contractions are a consistent 3 minutes apart.
