  • What's the reason to call the doctor? There's really no point until you are in labor. There's no reason to check to see if you are in labor or be checked a bunch of times. If you have contractions in a consistent pattern and are 5-7 min apart..t.hen call

  • diarrhea is a common cause for your body to expel anything before you go into labor so it doesnt happen while in labor. could be a sign its labor soon, or could have eaten someting bad etc... i would still call dr though

  • If you want to call, then do it. Labor can take days or weeks to progress, but since you're 37 weeks, you may already be on the way to the hospital as I type this. :)
    I personally would call my OB and let him know what's going on and ease my mind a little. It's possibly he'll do an examine and let you know how dilated you are, etc. Maybe you'll start getting some good contractions in the office! VERY exciting!

  • Wait it out, no need to go in

  • it could be any day now or weeks from now. just call if you experience contractions 5-1-1 or if your water breaks.
