Been having what i think are contractions but they could just be cramps. it is my first so i do not know what contractions feel like. i went to the hospital yesterday as i wasnt sure if it was just my mucus plug that i lost. the nurse said that the placenta was clear of the cervix and to go home and wait. i do not want to go back into the hospital for them to send me back home again and be a waste of time but on the other hand i do not want to leave it too late. please can u advise me?
You can also try laying on your left side & drinking water & see if that changes things. Or if you've been laying down, try getting up & doing something. Sometimes a change of activity will stop them if it isn't the "real deal". But the biggest thing is if they are getting hard to talk/breathe/walk through & are really getting your attention, its time to go. Time between them can be important, but not always.
