So I started having contractions at 4:00 AM, they were 45 seconds long and about 4 min. apart. I took a shower and they moved to about 1 min. long but 6 min. apart. I did a self cervical check and can feel something roundish and bulgey, but I don't think it feels like the water sac. Can anyone tell me what that might be?
And how close together should the contractions normally be before getting into the birth pool?
