I know this might sound weird but lately it has. And I am having serious pains and stuff but my water hasnt broke and there not five minutes apart. Its actually a long time before they go again, I dont know what to expect and I am just scared I am not gonna go to the hospital when I need to. Advice?

Your lucky you didnt get your membranes stripped. I did! it was painful. But i lost the rest of my mocous plug today and have been having contractions. SO i guess the pain was worth it if it started my labor. LOL I've also been really gassy so i'm glad i'm not the only one! good luck and hope its soon for you!
