  • I would go because I had the same thing and I am only 27 weeks and I am already 1 cm dilated.. they had to hook me up to an iv and put me on moniters

  • Call the labor and delivery floor at your selected hospital. It could be though, labor comes in all forms it seems... With my son, i thought I was just constipated b/c I was a little crampy in my very lower abdomen... tried enemas, laxitives, etc... then finally realized the cramps had some pattern to them after probably 5-6 hours.
