  • Call the nurse at the doctor office and see what they say. Also see if you can time the pains. Also see if your belly gets hard when you have the pains, those are both signs of contractions.

  • I went into labor with both my children at 38 weeks so I would call the doc cause its not unheard of to go into labor only a couple weeks early and its better to be safe then sorry. GL and congrats!!!

  • I called my doctor but had to leave a message. Now, I'm just waiting for them to call me back I guess.

  • OK... She said to take some Tylenol and lie down and if it doesn't get any better to call back. I think I'm gonna call my husband just in case I need him because it's only me and my 20 month old son here and I don't wanna end up going into labor and not having a way.
