fever seems to only last bout 5 hours every evenin and then goes away and with it the contractions go away to. i wish we had docs on call around her like u all do basically only option is the er i have a check up on thurs so just tryin to wait it out.. just dont make since its only in the evenings and im fine durning the day
The ob/gyn I go to has a team of six docs. They take turns being on call all the time. So after hours you call the answering service and they will page the doc on call and then get a call back within a half hour. I like the way they do that , you get to talk to a doc instead of a nurse. Definately call or see some one right away.

My OBGYN always had a nurse on call after hours to answer phone calls. I'd call your OB and see if there is an after hours service you can talk to and get advice on what to do (they may send you to the hospital). Otherwise I would go to Urgent Care (or if there's not one near you an Emergency Room) and get checked out.
Also you might be able to call the Maternity desk/Birthing Center (or hospital in general) and ask them what to do.
