    this is true labour i guess,if the contractions are at regular intervals for a certain period of time then you should get ready now,they ll come close in few hours ,if its your first baby then it might take 12-24 hours and if you are a mother already then i guess you should head to hospital now coz it might be pretty quick

    If you were already 2 1/2 cms dilated a week ago then I would speak to the midwife. I don't know where you are but in britain you are classed as being in established labour when you get to 3 cms. Sometimes at the end of pregnancy the cervix opens a little before labour. If you've been having pains, you could have dilated more so it's advisable to get the advice of a doctor or midwife! I've had 5 children and they were all very different so it's difficult to see how far on you are without being examined! Good luck!
