  • if you can't feel the contractions if you're having them you can keep an eye on your belly and when it seems like it gets really hard but comes and goes that would be contractions. cause with my first i never really was able to feel any of my contractions.

  • It is not a bad idea to call your doc and get advice from the doc on call tonight. Because you are only 35 weeks you have to be careful of preterm labor. Call the docs office. If you do not get an answer I would head to the hospital. If it is not labor, they will just send you home. It is better to be safe than sorry in this case.

    I am saying this because of the pressure and cramping not the mucus plug.

    Good luck! Keep me updated :D

  • Call your doc first and see what he says. :) No reason sit in a hospital room all night if not necessary. Drink a couple glasses of water, then go lay down on your left side. Put your hand on your belly and feel for any tightening/hardning of your belly. Thats a contraction. :) Look at the clock and make a note of the time. Wait for the next one. Note the time. If its just braxton hicks, the water and rest will make them lesson

  • If you lost your mucus plug, it wouldn't be a case to go to the hospital. If you are having cramping roughly six minutes about from each other you should go to the ER. If you have any other problems you should contact your doctor.
