Getting tired of writing down each contraction and doing the math in your head to find out how far apart they are all while you're completely exhausted?
Try out this free contraction counter on-line that does the math for you. The contraction log is so helpful. Just click on "Start Timing Contractions".
Remember that if your contractions are coming 5 minutes apart or closer and you've tried changing positions and drinking fluids, call your care giver. During early labor attempt to get some rest. If you can't rest, then play a game, watch a movie, chat on the phone, or keep yourself occupied mentally any number of ways. Try to reserve some physical strength for later, if labor follows you'll be glad that you didn't clean the house from top to bottom.
