  • idk...i have no idea. i thought it was bad. i was in there because i thought my water broke. it came out 3 different times and was a good amount and i KNOW it was not pee. i just know lol.

    ive been in there in the past for contractions too and before they said i was dilated and now this time they said im NOT dilated. i dont feel confident with what they told me there.

    idk. i dont feel secure with the results i guess...

  • If your baby is in distress, I would think that they would induce you to deliver the baby ASAP! A baby in distress is not good for the baby. Did they do an ultrasound to check on the baby and monitor the heart? I always thought that if a baby is in distress, there is that immediate need to deliver the baby.... I could be wrong, but I had a similar situation and my baby needed to be delivered quickly. I would call up your doc and let them know what the nurse said and that you are extremely concerned about it.
