Early labor?

I feel like crap today. I've been having contractions all night painful contractions starting in my back. I couldnt sleep at all. Up every hout. Nothing has helped. I am a little constipated tho but having severe cramps like I need to go. I still have 4 weeks left. Her head is engaged nd I was a fingertip dilated last visit. Which isn't much but I feel like I am about to explode. I feel like throwin up too. Maybe i am jus tired. Idk. I'm gonna eat. Drink some water. Take a shower nd attempt to take a nap. Can constipation be causing contractions. These don't feel like bh. I've had days where I feel off or labor is close. But today i jus feel different.

Dr had his nurse call. I was told to time contractions. Nd once they got closer together to go to labor nd delivery. I tried takin nap nd couldn't get comfortable with my million pillows. My appetite has not come back nd the pai. In my tummy nd back are still there. Has anyone else felt the tightening in their stomach followed by a burning sensation all throughout their back nd front?

That's what I told my fiancé I guess I'll go in when my water breaks. Im over my dr. I've seen him one time this whole pregnancy nd everytine I call up there I get a four hour later call back from a nurse. I know I am not his only patient but I jus would like to feel like I know who my dr is. I mean at this point I don't even see point in going week to week to plan for a dr I never see to deliver my baby. I've had 1 ultrasound nd that's it. He hasn't checked on baby at all. Nd every time I call oh it's normal. When I know my body. This is my 4th pregnancy nd I know what I'm feeling nd if its normal for me or not. I'm high risk anyhow nd he seems to not care about that. I've had preterm labor stopped twice already nd the hospital on call dr is the one who put me on stict bed rest.. Pretty sad.

maybe you should just go in since your primary doctor dosent do much n even speak out to your doctor an the hospital he works at.... that might make him do his job... .my dr is a great doctor except the nurse she tries to be the one that i should speak to...

Oh nd I've had kidney problems during pregnancy with all my children that showed up at 30-34 weeks pregnany thru an u/s nd one of which had developed tachycardia.  Um do you think e has monitored any of that?? No. I would much rather have an on call dr deliver this baby. Ugh sorry for my rant.

I have heard wonderful things about this dr but I had also heard he has to many patients as well. I know he is always delivering babies nd he believes in c sections. 80%of his patients are c sections. Nd I don't want to be one of those. He likes to deliver c section cause ita quicker for him. Didnt know that when i started seeing him. I've had all 3 vaginally nd want to keep it that way.

its okay to vent everything out... but yes just for your babys health and yours i would go in...
my doc checkes everything n luckly ive han u/s everymonth but i would go in n see what the doctor on call has to say n point everything out to him ... maybe your stress can be xausing these pains
