I hate drs and hospitals but...

I am 32wks pregnant and I am having pains in my stomach and pelvic area. Oh goodness in my back too. Thats were I had my labor with my son. It has happened about 10 times in the last 45min or so. My stomach tightens up and stays that way for about 20-30 sec then it goes away. My baby isnt moving much but when she does it is painful. And also I suspect amniotic fluid is leaking (but not sure). Now I have to have c-sec because I dont dilate and the baby doesn't move down. I dont want to call the dr. or go to the hospital if it really isnt even necessary. I have never called them this pregnancy. Do you think it is "important" enough to call?

  • i would go just to make sure everythings alright, they dont mind believe me its their job. You could also call and talk to someone if they think its important they will tell you to come in.

  • YES!!! CALL!!!!
    If you have 5 contractions in an hour, you're supposed to call the doctor. And being you're not full-term yet, you DEFINITELY need to call the doctor so they can give you magnesium to stop the labor until you're ready. CALL NOW!!
