Use This Handy Tool To Time Your Contractions
How to use this tool
Simply click the "Contraction starts" button at the beginning of the contraction, when you can feel the tightening sensation (either from the outside, with your hand on your belly, or from the inside). Click on the "Contraction ends" button when your uterus completely relaxes again.
Reporting the news
When you call your caregiver, tell her how long your contractions are lasting and how far apart they are. If they are getting longer and coming closer together, let her know immediately.
Important timing note
Contractions are timed from the start of one contraction to the start of the next contraction. When reporting to your caregiver, make sure you're timing correctly; don't count only the interval between contractions.
