Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I am having contractions

3 answers
1 year ago
The contractions are about 6 minutes apart and last around 21 seconds, it has been going on for about 4 hours. I thought it was braxton hicks because that has happened 6 times already, I have been waiting for something to happen to show me that I need to go to the hospital but so far nothing has happened. I am 30 weeks, and its scary to think I might have this bbaby this early. My doctor has told me before that I probably wouldn't make it to term because I have already went into early labor, so I was just wondering if I should go to the hospital or not.I will update you if something happens.

Any time you think you're having contractions you need to call either your doctor or the labor and delivery department of your hospital.

I would go , just to be safe. A baby born now would be fine with minor intervention, and monitoring! Our last baby was preemie born at 33 weeks was in the NICU for almost 2 weeks, and came home healthy and is now almost 2!
