i called my ob and no one will friggin answer.
I am 37 weeks and 4 days.

i was 1 ct at 35 weeks.

  • So was it a false alarm? If not, with pregnancy, it never hurts to ask- or get checked out. better safe than sorry!

  • I wouldn't go to the ER just yet. You will be bored. I would stay home until contractions become regular and stronger. They will probably send you home if you aren't in active labor. Enjoy your time at home b/c the hospital isn't exactly fun. Take a shower or a bath. Call your doctor and tell them what you said on here and see what he/she says.

    When I was dilating it felt like I was going to start my period....periodlike cramps..that's what my doc said it felt like. Not all women are the same though.

  • What's the rush to go to the hospital? If you call the hospital, they will tell you to come in when your contractions are regular. If it is not a false alarm you will know soon enough
