What do you think about the timing on these contractions?

1:53-39 sec.
2:01-42 sec
2:05-35 sec.
2:13-41sec
2:17-40sec
2:20-40sec
2:23-35sec
2:27-35sec

So there were 2 (between the first and second and the third and fourth) that were 8 min apart. The rest are 3-4 min.
They hurt but are bearable.
When I went to bed (at 11) they were 9-10 min apart.

I am trying to decide if I should start getting things together and wake up dh. We still have to call MIL to come over and watch ds and my bff to meet me at the hospital. She lives an hr away.
My ob wants me to come in as soon as they are regular since I am a vbac but I don't want to go in too early.

ETA: I think part of what is holding me back is that they are only 35-40 sec long.
That and I had a FULL night of prodromal labor on the 19th that fizzled.

I would get your things together and wake up your dh. Just because they're so short doesn't mean they're nothing and you don't want that baby to come when you're not ready.

ETA: Are they just uncomfortable or actually painful? From what I was just reading the contractions in the first phase of labor are only 30 - 60 seconds long!

Just checking to see how things are going? Maybe you're in labor!

Are you pretty much 'with it' BETWEEN the contractions? If so, I'd wait When you don't feel like talking much with them or between them anymore, then I'd head in!
