My doctor asked a question (was I having contraction) I told him yes. So he's like if you have so many in an hour go to the hospital... Blah blah blah. So I told him that if I did have so many in an hour that I'm not going to the hospital. He got mad and we started arguing. (yes I said arguing) he's saying that I'm neglecting my unborn child and that if he had to he'd call children services, I told him do what he had to do that I wasn't gonna change my mind. I left the doctors office and that was that. My argument is I'm 36 weeks and have been contracting since I was 30. I was hospitalized at 30 weeks 32 weeks and 34 weeks and I refuse to go back until my due date. Yes I'm at risk for pre-term labor but the way my contractions feel have not changed since I was 30 weeks if they do I'll go in. The hospital at 36 weeks will just monitor me. And there is nothing wing with me other than contractions, more than regular every hour. Mind you he checked me today I'm still hard and have not dilated at all. What do you think? What would you do?

My thought is that he really meant, if the labor progresses, therefor your contractions are coming faster, then go to the hospital. I think they have a generic idea of when it's progressed to a point that it's time to head that way.
I dont think there was any need to argue with him. Just do what you feel is best. Hopefully, if your plan was to have the baby in the hospital, you get there in time.
