Back Labor When To Go To Hospital
Could it be possible im going into labor if.? I been feeling lower abdomen pains and back pains since last night, exept I happens like every 2 hours for like 15 minutes and then they go away is this a sign of labor? Should I go to the hospital?
In a situation like this where you are unsure about going to the hospital, you should call the doctor's office. There will be a doctor or nurse on call that can tell you what to do based on how far along you are, your level of pain, and the frequency and duration of your contractions. I always tell my prenatal patients, when in doubt call your doctor!
best of luck. ...Read more
2cm dilated 80% effaced thursday. Lower back pain x2 days irregular contractions. Tired/ not hungry. Labor? Should I go to hospital 38 weeks 4 days
Not active labor: At term, most physicians recommend patients go to the hospital once they are having regular contractions, at least every 10 minutes, that have continued in that pattern for at least 1-2 hours and are perceived as getting stronger. Actual labor occurs only when there is cervical change--thus, that is what is evaluated on labor and delivery. As long as the baby continues to move well, await labor. ...Read more

See below: The goal of a labor epidural is to provide pain relief for childbirth without slowing labor or causing ill effects. To accomplish this, it has been found that a combination of medications given in the labor epidural work best. This allows the least amount of each medication to be given. Typically labor epidurals contain a dilute solution of local anesthetic (ropivicaine) and an opiate (fentanyl. ...Read more

She will need her personal items such as hairbrush, toothpast, toothbrush; She may want a night-gown and clothing/underwear/shoes to come home in; Bringing a baby outfit or special items for the baby and a few diapers is also a good idea for the ride home. You should also bring a car-seat. ...Read more

Hello. I recently spent the labor day weekend in the hospital after being diagnosed with rhabdo. What are the signs of rhabdo?
Rhabdomyolysis?: You ache all over and feel a bit weak. The kidneys may shut down for a bit but they recover fast. You may have exercised really hard, got overheated, or become allergic to you statin rx. I see you are a non-drinker, I bet you did not try Cocaine or fall off the mechanical bull (an famous cause in its time) or get struck by lightning. Insist that your doctor explain how the diagnosis was made. ...Read more

You will deliver!: You will be fast tracked through the er, triaged by ob/gyn personell, and than depending how far you are in labor, you will be closely monitored by the OB physician on the floor. Probably you will get the us to check again if everything is ok with the baby, the fetal tracing of the heart rate will be monitored. The doctors would need the info about your prenatal care and labs, and than congrats! ...Read more
Yes: You should always call the hospital, if you are able, to let them know you are coming in and why. They will be able to have a room prepared for you and have your paperwork ready. If there are space issues it also gives them time to do some rearranging so that by the time you get there you don't have to wait. All good things! ...Read more

Daughter is 36 weeks along and thought her water broke, but the hospital sent her home saying there wasn't ambeontic (sp?) fluid present. What was the fluid if not her water breaking? How close is she to going into labor?
Hello.: Hello. They check the fluid to see if there is ferning (cystallization pattern) which would be present if your daughter had a release of amniotic fluid. If that was absent, I am wondering if the fluid was urine? I really don't have a way to know when she will go into labor. Congratulations on the pending birth of you grandchild. Take care. ...Read more
I go to hospital in 34 week than doctor says baby head is down now I am 39 week pregnant but not start labor pain can baby change position these days?
Breech: Rare to have the baby change from vertex to breech at 39 weeks. Not a lot of room for baby to move at this time except you have a lot of amniotic fluid around the baby which will expand or create a lot of room for baby to flip from head down to buttocks down. It is expected that labor pain will start anytime. If not after 41-42weeks most places in the usa will induce. Good luck. ...Read more
When I get ultrasound or doppler at the hospital in labor/delivery e.R. My baby goes nuts in my belly. Why? Can he feel it vibrating or maybe hear it?
Sound: Imagine if you were in a pool of water and someone put a waterproof speaker up to the pool's edge. Definitely the babies react to the sound of the doppler, but, I don't think there's any evidence that they respond to the vibrations of the sound waves like a dolphin, the waves are just too far apart for that. That's great though! The nurses don't have to use an acoustic stimulator! ...Read more

Increasing intensity and frequency of contractions.
If difficult to breath through contraction, and if they start a out every 10 minutes, decreasing to 5 minute intervals. If your amniotic sac ruptures, lots of fluid pouring out of vagina. These would be reasons to go to hospital. If you are not in labor they will likely send you home if you and baby are stable. Labor is cervical change. ...Read more
I am 35 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing a lot of pelvic pressure, some contraction appr 4 an hour and severe vaginal pain and some slight wetness in my underwear not caused by incontinence. Is this preterm labor? Should I go to the hospital?
Call for a ride now: At any gestational age, a patient with persistent wetness or gush of fluid should see an er or OB provider to determine if rupture of membranes (rom), in labor, etc. The same applies if pelvic pressure, pain and contractions. Often nurse or on-call physician will see her and admit for evaluation or, if rom at 35 weeks, for probable labor and delivery. I tell my patients to not delay by eating, etc. ...Read more
