So I've been having contractions all night. They'll be consistent for a while then go back to sporadic. My son is in kindergarten. I'm wondering if I send him to school and pick him up when I'm in full blown labor or keep him home?


I'm a single mom and my OB is two hours away and his school is 15 minutes from my house.

ETA-
I'm up and moving around to see if that stops or makes the contractions stronger. Yesterday I had contractions and they went away once I got moving around. He was kept home yesterday because I was convinced we'd have to leave. So we have some time before school for me to see.

Are you sure it's early labor? If you are certain, keep him home.

I'm certain these are contractions that keep getting stringer but less timed. Makes no sense to me lol

Could it be Braxton hicks contractions?

I'm overdue and never had them before. They keep getting stronger so I don't think so.

Is his school on the way to the hospital by chance? Or do you have to go out of your way to get him?

Do you know how far apart they are? If not try and guess and call your ob's office
