  • Does it come and go? Do you think they might be contractions? Either way, I'd call your doctor or Labor & Delivery at your hospital. Even if they decide to check you and then send you home, you're always better safe than sorry.

  • It sounds like you are in the begining stages of labor!

    Relax. Its going to be OK, especially if you are past 37 weeks. Baby will be fine, and so will you!

    Focus on what you need to do...is your bag packed? Is the baby bag packed? Is the car seat in the car?

    Take a warm bath and just try to relax, or go for a walk. Something to take your mind off of it. When your contractions are 4-5 minutes apart, OR when they are at the point where they are hurting REALLY bad, then go in to the hospital :)

    Also, give your doctor a call. He may want you to go in now (even though they will probably send you home) just to check your progress.

    Good Luck!! And Congrats!

  • When does he get home? Do you have someone who can take you? You can still call your doctor, right?

  • call your honey and have him come home or have someone drive you to your hospital you need to get checked out. You dont want to deliver that baby at home ;)
