  • Follow your gut instinct. If there is a real emergency minutes matter.

  • just wait until the contractions are less than 5 minutes apart. go to contractionmaster.com (click start timing in the top right hand corner) to keep count. as for your baby not moving, sometimes they stop moving as much as they normally do when it's about that time.

  • If you havent felt your baby move in more than two hours, go to the er, they do tend to stop moving as much in the later stages of pregnancy because of lack of room. If youre worried you should go, if your dh football game is more important, then leave him home. I wouldnt take any chances being at 30 weeks, you arent full term yet and shouldnt be having the baby but you need to make sure that everything is alright.

  • Call Labor & Delivery at your hospital and ask to speak to either a nurse or the doctor on call.
    They're probably going to tell you to drink some apple juice (or something kinda sugary) and lay down for an hour. Count how many movements you feel in that time (and see if your contractions stop). If you feel less than five in an hour and still have the contractions, they'll probably want you to come in...though you should check and see what they have to say. They'll most likely hook up a monitor to check things out and tell you everything is ok. :) This is never a waste of time, it's reassuring, and will get rid of the stress you're feeling now, which isn't really good for either of you.

    As for hubby, baby is a million times more important than the game. If he knows how scared you are, he shouldn't give a rat's ass that it's game time, so feel free to let him have it when you're feeling better. :)

  • Lay down on your left side and drink a glass of orange juice, it works best and see if he starts to move.
