  • couldn't tell you if you should go or not but I doubt they'd do anything to stop them at 37 weeks.

  • They aren't going to stop labor at 37 weeks. I would wait until they are in a solid consistent pattern 2-5 mins apart. The contractions should double you over with pain.

  • They won't stop you at 37 weeks. Wait till they are a good 5 minutes apart then head in....otherwise you could end up being there a long time. And that is just uncomfotable, i would rather be in my own home in early labor than strapped to those machines.

  • with my 3rd my contractions started a lot and then out of no where they would stop. when i went into labor they stayed and got closer together. I didn't want to be sent home so I waited it out till i was sure
