  • Is this a serious question? Did you not go to the lamaze classes? Did you not pay attention? This sounds like it is time to call the dr and get to the hospital. Have you been timing your contractions?

  • Have you had any Prenatal Care during your pregnancy at all? If not then go to the ER otherwise call YOUR Dr.

  • 40 weeks and 4 days and you have no clue what is going on...Don't buy it..

    If you are concerned call the OB, simple right, oh wait, its Saturday so no doc is open, they don't have a after hours number to call and you (insert all other excuses here )....

  • Um, it means you are about to have a baby, honey. It means you should time your contractions to see how close together they are and call your doctor. It means that very soon, a big head, followed by a slippery little body, will be squeezed out of your crotch, and that head and body will expect to be nourished and cared for and loved.

  • It the pain is getting worse and less than 5 minutes apart, it is time to head back to the hospital... Yes this is normal per your MW because it is labor. If she did not explain that enough to you in a way you understood CALL HER BACK..
