So for the past month, I've been in an out of the hospital with preterm labor. The procardia has stopped working finally, and they are pretty much telling us 'take it easy and keep an eye on it.' A couple days ago had a very harsh pain in my stomach, last night contractions were at every 5 mins which is fairly normal at this point, we were told not to go to the hospital unless they were unbearable. Today, been about 3-5 mins apart. They hurt so bad, through stomach and back, early this morning felt like they kept shooting into my crotch iykwim... My hips feel like they're burning and hurt so bad. Baby was already sitting directly on top of cervix head down, could she be engaging? At what point do I go in? I'm in a lot of pain, but not sure at what point to finally give in and go. Hospital isn't giving me straight guidelines cuz my pregnancy has been so screwy that they are pretty much just like 'well...when it hurts bad...and they get close...' How bad is bad? How close is close? When do I give in and go? Hurting bad, lots of pressure...and don't know what to do!
