Re: When do you go to the hospital?
...I used to interpret those instructions every. day. about coming in when contractions were 5 min apart. Forgot all about that. I'll confirm with my ob since we are 30 min or so from hospital. Thanks, mamas! Yeah I am super familiar with what contractions feel like but no experience with deciding when they are strong enough to go to hospital. I typically manage (the induced contractions) until about 4 cm and then I am asking for epidural, but I am expecting a natural labor to be slower and less intense, so ???

Can you ask a doctor or we have a first nurse here that we can call in the middle of the night. Labor for one was a stabbing pain in my back known as back labor no one ever told me about that was excruciating and my second was like menstrual cramps.....
