How much more labor will I have if my contractions are an hour apart?


Answer by  gummie (738)

Every pregnancy and birthing process is unique. Even the same woman will have a different experience with each birth. Contractions that are an hour apart will probably not produce an off-spring until the next day, if then. But don't worry, the contractions will become more frequent and you will have that baby.

That would depend on many factors. First of all, is this a first time pregnancy? Subsequent pregnancies tend to have a shorter duration. Secondly how far along is the cervix progressed? If the cervix is not dilated or effaced, it could take anywhere from 24 hours to days. If there is progression, it could be shortened.

As every pregnancy is different, there is really no way to know for sure how much more labor you might have at that point. If you are not at the hospital, call your doctor and see if you can be checked for dilation and effacement. That is the only way to estimate how far along you are.

With every woman and every pregnancy it is different. When I was one hour apart for my fouth baby she came in four hours. With my others it was longer.
