Ohhhh no you don't need to go to the hospital till your 3-1-1

Contractions three min apart lasting one min each
Lasting an hour

Unless you live far away

You can have bloody show a week before labor

No not yet as this still could take a while. I lost mine and didn't have the baby until 3 days after. Only go if your water has broken or you are in active labour! Good luck it will not be long now!

you still have a lot of time left. i lost mine a week before once...all they will tell you is to go home until your 3-5mins apart, honestly i would even wait futher. this is my 5th and i probually wont go in until its like 1-2mins apart and steadily coming(i hate nurses that are supose to help you where they treat you like crap if you dont do it their way of epi and lay still...im not for that)....great news is your almost there...btw, people can loose their plug many many times before they are even close to 40 weeks. It actually regenerates itself a lot. Good luck with it all

Wait.. how much blood are we talking? Is it actual bleeding? Or some dk red mucousy stringy stuff? If your bleeding bright red blood it needs checked out.. if it was just sone bloody tinged mucous...your good to go.

nope. you still have lots of time. Go take a long walk until you are having some regular contractions that are at least 5 minutes apart with a minute between each.

No!!!! Wait until you cannot talk or walk through contractions! The more time you spend in the hospital, studies have shown, the higher your chance for a c-section,.due ti the unneeded interventions offerred.
