How far apart should contractions be to warrant a hospital visit??
For a certain amount of hours?? Or just a single hour

I think people have different instructions depending on your ob. So I think you should call and ask your dr. FWIW, my dr told me, 5 minutes apart, lasting more than 10-15 seconds, for at least an hour Or if the water breaks.
Most OBs follow the 5-1-1 rule.
5minutes apart (from start to start), lasting 1min a piece, for 1 hour straight.
Call your OB and see what they recommend.
