Contraction Timer helps you time how long and how frequent your contractions are when going into labor. In general, it’s best to use your own judgment when deciding if contractions are appropriate for a particular piece. Before deciding whether to use contractions in a writing assignment, consider your audience and your purpose for writing. One thing that makes German contractions slightly easier than ours is that they don’t stick any extra apostrophes into the new word.
We include an engaging activity sheet where students create contractions out of printed strips of paper. After we put the word cards on the belly (the cards are in the unit), my students made their contraction crocodiles, and then had to choose five words from the crocodile’s belly and turn them into contractions!
Many mothers describe contractions that occur in early labor as similar to menstrual cramps, or as severe gas pains, which may be confused with flu symptoms or intestinal disorders. If you’re feeling apprehensive about contractions and how you’re going to cope with them, remember that your midwife will be there to help.
Does everything you need with a simple straight forward interface, including edits and a nice visual display of the last two hours of contractions. In the initial exchanges, the drama is outrageously funny, as Emma and her boss hedge around the definition of a romantic engagement.
If the interval between contractions is 5-7 minutes it is necessary to go to the hospital immediately. They are regular, coming every 5 minutes or less and lasting for 30 to 90 seconds. Don’t feel guilty about waking your doctor (people who deliver babies for a living don’t expect to work only 9 to 5). And don’t be embarrassed if it’s a false alarm (you won’t be the first or the last expecting mom to misjudge her labor signs).
