Did you wait till you were bleeding or water broke?

To go to the hospital? My contractions are getting longer and more painful. Just not consistent. The cramping is constant, now I'm feeling it in my back. I went to the hospital on Thursday and was 2-3 dilated. 34 weeks with twins. My mucous plug has been coming out since Friday. Tmi. I feel like a first timer as I never had any labor with my first two. This is a completely new experience. Sorry this is all over the place. Also I'm having a csection so I'm not sure why I have to experience any of this lol

I had home births, but I did not call my midwife until I was unable to walk through a contraction.

Did you drink water and take a long bath? That could make them subside.


To answer the question in the title, I never experienced bleeding. With my first I went in when my contractions were 5-8 minutes apart and regular. With my second I went in when my water broke after having conractions for a few hours. With my last baby my water broke but I didn't have any contractions.

Why aren't they stopping labor if you need a csection?

You should go to be on the safe side... My water broke with my first and I left about 15mins later. I was used to having contractions tho and I hardly felt mine.

My first my water broke first. I was fine staying home longer but my hubby was not. So we went to the free birth center about 4 hours in.

My second I really swear I was going to have her and went to the hospital about 4 hours in. But once I got there I was only 3 cm and it went on for another 14 hours.

My third I had a home birth and loved I didn't have to go anywhere. Everyone came to me. After labor started 45 mins in. I knew it was time to call everyone. She was my shortest birth of 6 hours.

What do you mean by bleeding? Bloody show is normal, straight up bleeding is not. My water never broke on its own.
