Me and my Dh had "some alone time" this morning and I have been having contractions all day. The thing is they are not that strong. They are not braxton hicks contractions I know the difference. They are the real thing just not that strong. I was wondering how do I make them stronger or should I just go to the hospital anyway even though they are not strong. They are like about seven minutes apart and they have been that way all day. I don't want to get all the way there and they send me home, my doctor

Have you tried nipple stimulation? That's suppose to make contractions a lot stronger - but you're suppose to do it for about 15 minutes/ hour for as many hours as you need to get things going really well. You could also try having sex again - especially if you orgasm - that would help.
