NO NO: Your OB doc should ! who would have told u that ? If you are over 20 weeks along u would go to the labor room , so call yoru OB doc or go to the er and they will send u up to OB but i know your OB doc wants to know if u are having those symptoms.

Pain, bleeding.: Usually preterm labor is manifested with abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, fever or leaking fluid per vaginam. As it progresses to preterm birth, it invariably causes severe pelvic pain and pressure and should be managed in a tertiary hospital with nicu availability.
