5-1-1 or 5-1-2
In general, contractions will come and go and may not be labor
Only when they are regular, every 4-5 min apart or sooner, and when that lasts more than 1-2 hours is it usually labor. If your bag of water breaks, call your doctor and plan to head to hospital. "the rule: 5 min apart, lasting 1 minute, continuing for more than 1-2 hours." always make sure your baby is moving well.
