Will/has anyone used a computer contraction timer? I was looking into a few of them online, but just wondering if you all have any suggestions?
I've never used one before, but I do think contractionmaster.com looks simple to use. I may use it if I feel I need help with that. I don't plan to obsess over timing, but may use it on and off periodically to gauge where I'm at, whether or not to call midwife, etc...

I used the one at "the Bump". I wasn't in love with it, but it did the job well. I didn't like the one at Contraction Master (last labor) because you had to use the space bar key rather than the mouse. That was just annoying.

I didn't use one on the computer, I have an iPhone app that timed my contractions. I liked that better because I could easily take my phone with me where ever I was, instead of having to stay right near the computer.

Sweet. Thanks. I am going to bookmark them and just see how labor plays out. Hopefully I won't need to use it, but it would be fun to track.
Thanks for posting these, btw - I didn't know anything like this existed! Just timed about an hour of Braxton hicks - just for fun - it was interesting to track. I think it will be useful when I have ACTUAL contrax. Btw, I was using The Bump site one and liked it.
