Contractions! Help!

So I've been in labor (I think) since ten this morning and it's now after midnight. My contractions have been anywhere from 7 minutes to 20 and have been getting more and more painful throughout the day. My doctor said not to go to hospital until they are five minutes apart for a hour... Did anyone else experience something similar? How long did it take to get to that five minute marking period? Help!

with my first I didn't know I was in labor so I was up all night but I would say it had to b like possibly 8 -10 hours for them to b that close together. I just know I was up all night went to thehospital around nine they were seven min apart and had my son @ two. sorry I can't give u exact time because my water never broke just thought I was having Braxton hicks was 17 @ the time

Thats how my contractions was before I came into the hospital to be induced and they said they were irregular contractions but helped me go onto active a labor. Some ppl can feel them at a regular interval some dnt and you can be dialated enough to be admited
