Ok, i'm pretty sure that i am in labor. I am havine pans every 10 minutes and when i went to the bathroom, there was a little blood mixed with discharge. I am 37 weeks along, and i was dialated at a 1 at 36 weeks. Is it labor, or am i overreacting?

  • well how long have you been timing them?? time them for an hour and when they get to be about 4 min apart go to the hosp.

    if its a lot of blood, i would go in now. but if it is just a little bit..i wouldnt.

  • my doctor told me the "411" rule..

    4 minutes apart for 1 hour straight lasting 1 minute each....

    he said when i hit that point to go to the hospital...
    well he actually told me to call him but its whichever YOUR dr said to do..

  • it sounds like the blood thing was your mucus plug, which would be a sure sign that your in labor. Your probably already at the hospital but i'm answering anyways. So good luck.
