Do i need to go to L&D?

Woke up around 5am which period type cramps. Went to the bathroom and I'm bleeding. Nothing out of control but enough to drip out onto my underwear and into the toilet. Its pink. Should I wait to see if It gets heavier? My belly has been in a constant BH since last night around 11pm

Absolutely go in! Period type cramps are a tell-tale sigh on labor starting!

ITA with everyone else. You need to go and get checked out especially since you're bleeding. That was my first sign that I was in the early stages of labor with DS#1. I had a ton of pressure down there and then started to bleed. How far along are you ?

Well Im in labor! contractions started out 7min apart, then to 5 then to 3. they did an ultrasound to make sure baby was ok if born today. Iv fluids etc dilation is right under a 2 and 50% effaced. stayed that way for a couple hours then i was given morphine for the contractions and they spaced out again.

Wow. Are they going to do anything to stop the labor for now. Aren't you only between 34 and 35 weeks?

Contractions aren't as close together now. They said if he does decide to come he is looking good. Her bag is bulging and she isn't allowed to get up unless its to go to the bathroom.

She isnt too comfy right now. The meds they gave her for the contractions just make her feel gross and don't help with the pain.

Lots of well wishes for baby boy. Hopefully they were able to get a dose of steroids in her but if her water broke then baby will definitely be coming. GOOD LUCK and ELVs!!!!!

She just got the epidural and is at a 3 now. Dr won't start pitocin or anything yet, they want to see if her contractions will continue to do anything. They said the water around Cash broke but another part of it didnt, if that makes any sense? She is def feeling a lot better now that the epi is in. They havent given her steroids from what I have been told. They say he will do good on his own. I'll keep updating as she updates me.

Are there any new updates? That's pretty good that they feel baby is doing well enough to not have given the steroid shot. Hope her and baby are doing well. Anxiously waiting for an update.
