Quoting Lucy Cano:" yea she did not try to stop it , she just told me to come in wen contractions are harder an more together mine are 7-8 minutes apart"


Just try to relax and wait until they're about 4 minutes apart, or longer if you can. The longer you wait at home the faster your hospital experience will be :)

Keep us updated!
And btw if your baby is ready then they're ready! Due dates aren't exact and you may be further along than you think. GL :)

my due date is also Nov 5th...and it sounds like you could be in early labor...although I have lost my plug several times...it regenerates....I was dilated to almost a 2 two weeks ago....just try to relax and drink water....nothing you can do if it is actual labor...nothing will stop it..good luck!

At 37 weeks they won't try to stop your labor because most of the time your baby will be fine :)
Can your SO come home early from work and help you out? Or can you go to a family or friends house and use their tub? A tub will help relieve a lot of pain and let you relax!

There not going to do anythng to stop contractions at 37 weeks. 37 weeks is considered full term. They will send you home untill your contractions get closer together, such as 5 min apart, then they will admit you to L&D and prep you for delivery.

u should go to the hospital although u are 37 weeks your baby should be healthy enough to be delivered without complications. You don't want to be at home alone and have to deliver your own baby.

Sounds like you should call hubby and tell him he should come home early from work......I don't think it's a good idea for you to be home alone with a toddler....especially if you are already having contractions. Never heard of stopping labor.

I'm so sorry :(
Honestly, I would just push through the pain and take your kids for a LONG walk. Walk as fast and as far as you can, and up any hills you can find! lol
Then when SO gets home, have sex and make sure he c*ms in you because the sperm helps!
Do some squats too!
