Hey im 37 weeks pregnant ive been having BH for the last few weeks, i was having the contractions with some back pressure so i went in to the doctor 3 days ago and i wasnt thinning out or anything. over the last few days the contractions have gotten a lot more painful. I lost my mucus plug last night and today ive had very painful contactions to were im almost in tears then they go away they usually start in my back then they move to the front. Id say the contractions have gotten progressivly worse and more often. Is it just my body prepairing or could they be someone more serious. I live a hour away from my hospital so i dont want to waist fuel driving there just for them to send me home...

sounds like your body is getting ready! i wouldnt go in until your contractions are 5 minutes apart (i usually say 3 minutes but since your an hour away im going with 5)...labor as long as you can at home...being at the hospital sucks lol. GOOD LUCK! oh and also, i knew my contractions were for real when they were lasting a solid 60 seconds.

Do they go away when you lay down/rest?

Alright, how long do they contractions last and how much rest time do you have in between them?

Id say that they are happening every 4-8 mins. Theyre not always bad, sometimes there bad enough were im almost is tears but i dont know if theyre bad enough to where im speachless.

Only during transition was I not able to not clearly communicate but even then I could say go get me a glass of water in a mumble. I get like a bad acid trip and I was in a thick fog lol But early labor was just uncomfortable and annoying as hell like some kept punching the breath out of me.

Draw yourself a warm bath relax. Do you have a support person have them call your doctor and get your stuff ready..
