  • How far along are you?

    Your doctor is a dumbass if you have only 2-4 more weeks to go, because warm/hot water causes contractions. Everybody knows that. Its an easy way of inducing labor ;)

  • Maybe she wanted her to go into labor for whatever reason? lol

    but i would call my doctor back as well.

  • I dont think taking a bath was a good idea i agree with m robertson811...........especially you can have that baby anytime now!!!!! There's been several books I read that mention not taking bath's when your so far along...

  • That is exactly how my labor started! All day my back was killing me and that night my water broke and by the time I got to the hospital, I was already 8 cm dilated~! I had no idea that the back pain was actually labor!! So def call your Dr. back or go in to be monitored! Good luck :D
