Please tell me I'm not in labor!

I woke up just over a half hour ago with contractions that kinda take my breath away. So far I can't tell if they are regular. My belly gets hard, but it only hurts just above my c section scar, and they only last about 30 seconds. I am 36 weeks 5 days. We are just over an hour away from the hospital, and in the middle of a winter storm. Again, please tell me I'm not in labor!

I'd start to time them! Can you call your doctor to talk to someone before you go in?

They are about 3 to 4 minutes apart. I can call l&d, but think I should wait to time some more. It's only been an hour.

are you going to be able to get to the hospital?  that's pretty close together, and to be an hour away and in the middle of a storm, i'm not sure i'd take the chance of waiting.   better to get to the hospital and not need to than to wait it out and not make it there.

I would start heading to the hospital, and call your doctor.

Good Luck!!!!
