You'd think I would know....

when/if to head to the hospital. I went to bed at about 11 and have woken twice to go to the restroom. Both times when I've wiped there has been more bright red blood and I feel very "crampy". Wish I knew whether it was contrax or not. Like I was telling my mom earlier I don't have regular ol' "start in the back, move to the front" contractions...never have not even my pit contractions where like that..................so I just don't know Sad

Well it's been an hour and there is definitely a "pattern" to this....they have been every 3-4 minutes and have been getting stronger. I just went and got my brother so he's here when/if mom and I need to head to the hospital. I'm about to jump in the shower and may pack a bag for myself as I haven't done that yet.......

still sitting at home....still "contracting" every few minutes. I don't want to go in and then be told go home...........not to mention I can't get a hold of my friend and if I have my mom take me then I have no one to get my kids ready for school and off to school....

Its hard questioning "to go or not to go".... Especially with the dusapointnent of them sending u home. I'd say wait as long as u can to make sure it's the real thing. The cramping and back pain are both side effects to labor. Focus on timing the actual contractions (tightening of the stomach) That should help... KUP! Good luck!

I think, if I were in your situation, I'd probably try to wait til I got the kids off to school, then go. I hope this is it for you!
