Question What do you think, ladies???

So today I went in for my weekly checkup, and final growth scan.

While I was seeing the doctor for my regular checkup, he did a quick ultrasound to find the babies heartbeats, since it can sometimes be difficult to find both with the doppler. Right away he notices I'm low on fluid... and brings in another doc for a look... who agrees.

Then, he checks my cervix, and says I'm 5 cm dialted, and 90% eff.
He says to me, "So, you might be having these kiddos today!!!"

Still....... they ended up sending me over to the hospital for the growth scan, and to talk with the high risk OB over there. They also did an NST after the ultrasound.
The high risk OB talked to me for a few minutes, but then they just said they would do another NST at my appt. next week.

So.... what do I do now? These are my first babies. I haven't felt ANY contractions yet... but apparently, my body is moving me towards labor.

Should I just sit and wait?? I feel like the first doc wanted to send me to L&D right away, and then they just sent me home. Now I'm worried that I should be there..??

What do you ladies think???? TIA!!

My fluid dropped the day before I went into labor. Take a walk, momma. My bet is that you'll be holding those babies very soon.

Sounds like what happened to me. I'm at the doctor's and he's asking me if I'm sure I'm not in labor because I'm already more than half way there. I ended up going to the hospital later than night because I was desperate to hold my baby not because I felt pain. He was born less than 24 hours after the Doc told me I was half way there.

Hate to tell ya, but it could still be awhile. I felt sort of "funny" so I went to the hospital 5 weeks before I was due. They checked me and I was 4 cm so they decided I was in labor. Not really sure that I was, cause my a$$ of a doc hadn't checked me for over 3 months. With twins, you tend to dilate early because of all the pressure.

Re: What do you think, ladies???

Hmmm.... yeah this is the first time they really checked me as well. I had a complete previa for awhile so they couldn't check me at all!!

I just thought it was strange that the first doc told me I would be having my babies soon... then the one @ the hospital said they would see me next week...

I would love to be holding them in 24 hours though!! Keep your fingers crossed for me...

Re: What do you think, ladies???

I have a friend who was 4-5cm with her twins and didn't go into labor on her own. It's more likely that you're water will break on it's own which is why they like to do it for you. My water broke and I delivered within an hour and within 15 mins of arriving at the hospital.
Just stay close to home, close to the hospital, and have a towel handy just in case!
