    Generally they don't want you in until you meet the 5-1-1 rule: contractions five minutes apart, one minute long lasting for an hour without stopping.

    However, since you're 5cm already (go you!) it might be best to check with your OB to see if that's going to apply to you.

    No you wait until they are 4-5 mins apart
