Is it that helpful to have an accurate record of my contractions?

Not really: Most obs want to know approximately how far apart the contractions are. For example, "i have been having contractions 5 to 7 minutes apart for an hour and they are getting stronger, " or "i am having 10 to 12 contractions in an hour.".

Thanks for asking!: Not necessarily. The pattern and frequency gives the likely progression range and can let your caregiver know that a problem is occurring.
