  • Are you having contractions? Are they consistent? If not, then, no. Go when you are having timeable contractions that are getting worse.

  • If I were you I would call the hospital and ask them what they think. Good luck!

  • call your doctor! I have a feeling they might have you go in to be checked, if its nothing, they'll send you home... couldn't hurt to go in but if it was me, I would call my doctor

    good luck!

  • With my first pregnancy I didnt feel any contractions and at the hospital I slept through them. They were amazed that I slept through all the contractions and in the long run had to have a c section.

  • I would not go unless you are experiencing contractions. It could just be a stomach bug.

  • I would go, just to be safe. The worst that happens if you go is they tell you its nothing and send you back home.

  • I would go just to make sure you aren't dehydrated.

  • Are you planning another c-section or a VBAC? Either way sounds like you need to go in.
