  • There isn't much you can do... They come out when they are ready. It's the way of life, Hon. Hang in there.

  • no i would just wait til my water broke but then again i dont want to be on my back in a bed for 6 hours again with out being let up to walk or anything but if youre really worried then call your doc so that way you feel less scared and he might tell you to go to the hospital and see if your in labor good luck and i hope you feel better

  • It wouldn't hurt to call your doc and get his/her opinion on what they want you to do. Make sure you are drinking your water so that it isn't just contractions caused by dehydration. take a warm bath, lay on your left side. If your contractions keep up through all of this you might actually be in labor :) Congratulations and Good luck!

  • Keep moving or take a bath. Try to relax. Baby will come when it's ready.

  • Dont wait for your water to break...sometimes it doesnt....Sometimes active labor is not painful either, if it continues and you are very uncomfortable in any position call the Dr.
