Would you go to the hospital if...

you were having contractions so painful you couldn't stand?
lost your mucas plug and started bleeding?
were worried about your babys fetal movement?

I have seen a lot of questions like this on here tonight. The worst thing that happens if you go to the hospital and you aren't in labor is you get sent home. but you might be having a baby tonight!! GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!!

now turn off your computer and go to the damn hospital:)

  • BridgetC140 is right I had preterm labor with my daughter and I would have had a very permature child had I not recognized the symptoms and gone to the hospital. They were able to stop my labor and give her more time to develop.

    On the other hand if you are full term keep in mind that if your contractions are not so strong that they stop you in your tracks or even mid sentence then you ar eprobably not in active labor. With my son I was back and forth to the hospital thinking that it was finally time just to get sent home.

    The main thing is that you follow your instincts and go to the hospital if you are one knows your body or your baby like you. Good Luck.

  • Yes, every little moment is precious. I had a preterm labor in 2000. For a day and a half, I had a dull lower back pain...just thought it was a pregnancy symptom. Then I lost my mucus plug and there was blood...I immediately went to the hospital, but it was already too late.....I was septic from being dilated and baby was also. Don't hesitate to go....your baby's and your own life may depend on it.

  • I'm so sick and tired of people asking if they could be in labor. Do what we all did before the internet, and go get checked. I can't reach my hand through the screen to check you cervix.
