Is It Premature Labor or Not?

I've had constant back pain for about 8 hours now, I've slept all day and don't really know if I had contractions, my water hasn't broken, I'm not bleeding but I've had mild cramping but not regular enough to keep track of, I'm also feeling pressure like pain in my v**. I feel sick everytime I eat something and I'm a little pale and have dark circles under my eyes. Should I call my ob, go to the hospital or just keep laying down using heat pads to try and take the pain away? Sorry, I'm 34 weeks.

Episiotomy with First, Experience with 2Nd?

I had a minor episiotomy with my first born. It really was not a big deal for me . . . made it so much easier to deliver and the recovery was really a breeze compared to other mothers I know. That was 26 months ago. I am due next week and the hospital stance is no episiotomies. Did you have an episiotomy with your first, and not your second? How did everything go for you? I m curious about other women and their experiences. Thanks!

Group B Strep

This is my third pregnancy (I'm 8 weeks) and I just found out I have group B strep. I guess the lab found it in my urine sample. I'm a little freaked out. I'm not sure how I got it, I didn't have it with my first two children. The doctor put me on antibiotics, but is this enough? Everything I have read on the internet is not good about delivery with group B strep. Has anyone else had a successful delivery with the group B strep? I found plenty about what happens to the infant, but what will happen to me? Will I always have this? ...

Information on Pre-term Labor the Second Time Around

We are in the process of thinking about having another child. With my son I went into pre-term labor at 28 weeks. Since he was fine they left him but for 10 weeks it was several trips to the hospital, sometimes a couple of times a week, to get shots to stall off labor. My son was finally born at 38 weeks and he was healthy! After several tests my Dr. did not know why my body went into labor so early. I was wondering if any of you were able to have a "normal" pregnancy after going into pre-term labor with a previous child?

To VBAC or Not to VBAC

I need your expert advice again. I had an emergency C-section with my son- his heart rate dropped and I ended up with an emergency C-section and my epidural did not work! It was an experience, but he was fine and that is what mattered. I am 13 weeks pregnant with baby number 2 and want to try a VBAC as I was progressing ok until he got into trouble. Has anyone had a VBAC? What are your thoughts!! Thanks again
