if they are occuring every 5 minutes those arent braxton hicks... real contractions get regular and 5 minutes apart is pretty regular

Yes! Go!  Anytime you get more than 4 contractions an hour and are pre-term (less than 37 weeks gestation) you need to go to L&D.

i have been having that for the last several days...they are regular every 5-7 for me, but after about 30-40 minutes, the pattern stops and i don't have any more for a couple of hours.  i hope you get some good dialation out of it!!!!  glad you are okay :-)

Hi, Funny I'm also due Sept 15!  A baby girl. We're also in Az.
I started having painless, inconsistant contractions last thurday. And Today they became to be 5 min apart for two hrs straight but have since slowed. I wasn't worried about them until I spoke to a woman yesterday that said her contractions were painless but definitely the real thing as it ended up being true labor cause her water broke after they were 3 min aprt and was crowning as she arrived to hosp. So now I'm very anxious as I am sure you are. There's just no way of being certain if it's labor or not.
