  • YES. If you have concerns while you are pregnant and 11 weeks from your due date....GO TO THE HOSPITAL ASAP. Do not ask anyone here!

  • If after drinking a big glass of water and resting on your side you are still getting these pains I would head to the hospital to get checked.

  • I agree with the 1st poster. Go to the hospital. Why do people ask on a social site? If everyone says no and something happens to your baby who will you blame...them or yourself? Just GO.

  • The SAME EXACT thing happened to me when I was 30 weeks. Only I waited until I was having them for three hours straight and they were 3 minutes apart. I can assure you that I wish I had gone earlier. My doctor and the people at the hospital all told me I should have gone in as soon as it started because its better to be safe than sorry. I had to get the shot to stop my contractions and I had to stay over night. You really should go to the hospital whenever you have to ask yourself if you should or not. It is much better to be safe than sorry and if anything happens because you were careless, you will never forgive yourself. Please keep us posted and I would really like to know how things go for you.
