i've been having contractions every like, 2-3 hours & all of a sudden i think i'm getting them every 20 minutes ..

i was wondering if that's how it goes when you're going into labor ? like, does it gradually get to 5-10 minutes or could it go from 2 hours to 20 minutes just like that ?

it can be very fast or very slow. feel lucky if its fast for you

for me personally I was at every 20mins for a LONG time, and then all of a sudden it was every 8 mins, then every 4 mins...
so everyone is different, but yes totally possible!

Every labor is different. It really depends on how your body handles going into labor. I am so excited for you. Hang in there. It is going to be one of the most amazing times in your life :)
