  • Alysia call your OB- tell them EXACTLY what your feeling if he says come in, than you need to call 911 tell them your alone and believe your in labor and have no ride- they WILL transport you.
    but think about this before you jump the gun, last time I went there thnking I had contractions I was wrong, and about an hour later after watcing the moniters they sent me home- an an EMT wont take you home LOL
    but if your tummy is REALLY honestly getting hard and your not just having period cramps u need to get check out!

  • I always make it a policy to never call an ambulance, just call the fire department rescue if you need help. They have the training to make a judgement call on this.

  • Oh...duh. FOrgot to answer the question. Medicaid is supposed to pay for what you can't afford. But in this case I don't think they will unless it is a true emergency. What constitutes a true emergency is tenuous. Go to your states website to look it up if you can.

  • Yeah, call your OB/GYN doc hon, but if it isn't labor, the ambulance won't take you home afterwards.
