On the internet?: We love this Health Tap App. But it is never to replace actual health care. You are in labor. Or you have an infection. Either way you need to sign off of the internet and contact your OB. Don't you think? Today?

The big show's comin: hang in there....it'll be over in the next couple of weeks. This is in preparation for the real deal. Is this going to be a natural birth process, induced, or planned C? Good luck. You're young but every pregnant woman should watch Bill Cosby's Classic Monologue on Kids and Giving Birth. You'll laugh so hard that you may just have the baby without realizing it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEwPy31vWZ8

So, if you've had a chance to watch the YOUTUBE on Cosby....what about this....are you able to time these muscle "cramps" at all? Did you call your OB/GYN? If these cramps are timing out rythmically then, you should probably get that suitcase and someone to accompany you to the hospital. They'll be able to tell you whether you're likely in or close to labor.
