Some hospitals will let you deliver at 36 weeks other will say 37. Call your OB. If first baby and you have been at contractions every 6-10 mins. May say wait till every 5. Good luck

The longer you can safely wait the better for baby but you should go in and be monitored because contractions can affect the baby's heart rate. If you're already dilated they need to keep an eye on you to prevent infection also. Good luck I'm sure you and your precious baby will be fine. ;-)

You can never be too safe, we felt like all we did was drive back and forth from home to Hosp. I'd go back, until you get there and they admit you and everything you might be dilated enough to stay.

Call your doc or midwife and ask if you can take a warm shower or bath to relax. Go to a movie, take a walk, get your husband to give you a massage, anything to help you relax. Stress is not good for you. Some women have contractions and stop but you need a professional medical opinion to decide and most hospitals do not deliver before 37 weeks unless it is considered absolutely medically necessary. Congratulations on your new addition to the family.
