Re: getting a bit concerned, help me not be paranoid
Well, the concern is not so much labor itself, rather that I am a bit early for it to be labor.
In any event, I called them about 3:50. Explained the situation, the nurse talked to the doc and then called me back. She called back about 10 after, I had a contraction right about 4 on the dot before she called.
What she said was that right now right at about 3 per hour, keep resting and hydrated. She said if they get to where they are at 4 per hour and they stay that way for 2 hours, to call the office line and get the on call number (they close at 4) At that point, the on call doc in L&D will have me come in for an early labor check, just to make sure the contrax aren't doing anything.
She also said if they stay consistant at 3 per hour all night long and into tomorrow, to give them a call back and that they will probably have me come in tomorrow morning just to be safe.
