I can get several an hour all day and night sometimes. It was similar with the last 2 as well, but I started later I think. I went to 42 weeks with #1 and 41 weeks with #2 so I doubt I will go early this time either. Just keep well hydrated and make sure to keep eating healthy. That is the best you can do
