With my son, my water broke and by the time I drove 15 minutes to the hospital, I was already 8cm dilated and still not experiencing any pain. This time, I have a new doctor. The hospital I am delivering at is 1 hour away! I am hoping to catch contractions early so that I can get my butt there before hitting 8+ centimeters (I'm so afraid she will be delivered on the side of the highway!) Anyways, for weeks I've been experiencing BH contractions. Last night I woke up, and they were persistent, about every 10 minutes. I'm experiencing pressure and sharp twinges in my pelvis. However, when I get up and move, contractions seem to go away. Instead, I experience bouts of pressure, as if I have a full bladder, and the same sharp twinges. At my OB appt yesterday(I am 38 +3), baby was at a -1 station, I am 4 cm dilated, and 80% effaced. I'm not in any pain... it's not full blown labor. I'm just not sure what to feel/look for.
