Yes: Being 37 weeks pregnant and having contractions for 2 days at an interval of 10 minutes and contractions getting stronger, patient should go to the hospital. Scheduled c- section points towards history of previous c-sections or a condition, where normal spontaneous vaginal delivery has very high risk for the mother and the fetus. Going to the hospital and calling obgyn is the way to go. Thanks.
