  • Forget calling your doctor, you need to head to L&D and get checked out, especially if this went on all weekend!

  • this could be preterm labor. Head over to the hospital and get checked. They can call your oB from there to get instructions. It's too early to be having a baby.

  • Call L&D at the hospital you will be delivering at. there is no excuse for your Dr or at least a nurse to call you back.
    You very well could be in the early stages of labor. The only real thing you need to worry about is if your baby has turned yet. If you know the baby is head down I'd want to get an ultrasound. I had to have an emergency cection because my daughters cord was coming out first and her head was pressing on it. If I hadn't gone to the hospital she would have died. You will be fine as long as your water has not broken yet and you still feel movement. I'd just call them to see what they say.

  • You must live in Chicago or near here. It is really crappy out here. I would call l&d or have the answering service page your dr. You need to be seen because like everyone else said it is a little early for you to have the baby. GL.
