3-5 min contractions & lost mucus plug at 5am, time to go to the hospital?
Hello, I went to L&D on friday because I was having contractions (some what painful, some more so than others) every 3-5 min, I was checked and at 2 cm...they then had me walk up and down the hallway for 45 min to see if i would progress and i got to 3cm. They then kept me for one more hour to see if i would keep progressing but by the time another hour rolled around I was still about a 3. even though my contractions were still 3 min apart they sent me home. My contractions have been still consistantly 3 min apart since friday. This morning I woke up to use the restroom and bam! mucus plug... and I'm still having contractions.. so my question is... should i go head and call L&D and head in? I just feel like this is it...
