All test came back negative for amniotic fluid. My contractions.are 2-3 minutes apart and getting painful so I don't know what's going on. They are sending me home and told me to come back when they get worse. I am so frustrated right now. I'm pretty sure the big gush of fluid I felt was my water breaking and I feel it every time I have a contraction. I just cried when they sent me home. L&D was so busy and they had no rooms available and I found out that my doctor is out of town.

Jennifer, sounds like you have prodromal labour, I had this with Clara and it was HORRIBLE. I went to L&D a couple times convinced I was in labour and I got sent home and cried for hours. They said if you have contractions and your cervix isn't changing you aren't really in 'real labour'. I've also felt like the last couple days I'm "leaking fluid" and my pantyliners have been pretty wet but this can be normal too as your cervix thins out. I hope it does turn into full blown labour for you so you can end this misery.... I know how much it sucks!

Well now I'm bleeding and passed a really nasty blood clot. The hospital only checked me once and didn't even check again when the contractions started. They are getting more painful and DH really wants to just go to another hospital. He.feels like because they were.so busy that they just brushed me off.

I would agree with your husband and go to another hospital! Worst case they just send you home again, best case you are in labour and little Sophia will be in your arms soon.

I would definately go back if you are bleeding!! If you have pain and bleeding you could have a partial abruption or even an abruption happening, they shouldn't send you home if you have those symptoms!!

Is it bloody show when you wipe or all out bleeding. I would absolutely go back! Worst case they send you home again better to get checked. I went in once with #2 for fake labor that I swear was real and they gave me some good drugs to help me through the contractions for the next few days to help me try to rest through them.

It's just when I wipe. Like mucus and blood mixed together which they said is normal after a cervical check, but I've had my cervix checked numerous times and never once had that issue. They didn't say anything about a blood clot though. I'm assuming it's my bloody show. Ugh! 2nd kid and you would think I would know this!! The contractions are getting to the point where I can't even walk or talk through them and they have consistently been 3 minutes apart for an hour. We all know our body and I just know that I'm in labor or at least the early stages. Ok....I just had a really really painful contraction. It starts in my back and wraps around to my lower front and hurts like a SOB. I'm going to have to go back up to L&D again soon, I just know it.

sounds like you'll be heading in at some point the evening or early early morning. Good luck! We may end up with Two pumpkin pies on the same day!

The problem is with their triage. Once I get a room there it will all be great!!

It sounds like it's just bloody show then, which is good. It DOES sound like you are in early labor though. When my contractions get to the point where I can't walk or talk through them I typically only have 2-3 hours before baby arrives. I would get to a hospital!!

I'm glad you went back to the hospital. With the clot, I think you need to be watched. Hope Sophia decides to come out safe & sound so you can get some rest. Sending you ELVs! Smile

I'm so happy you went back. Good luck & ELV's for you and wee Sophia.
