I went to the doctor yesterday and I was a loose 3cm dilated. 75% thinned out.. He said he expects me to go anyday, although he has said that for the past 4 weeks. After yesterdays visit, I started spotting, which I know is normal. Although, last night I had globs of gooey brown chunks in my underwear, toilet, and when i wiped. I didn't think anything of it-- assuming it was my mucus plug... ANYWAY-- last night, I must have caught a virus, because I started vomiting and having the other out the other end... It lasted about 12 hours-- couldn't beleive it didn't throw me into labor... Well, today, I am having contractions like crazy although they aren't painful-- What I have been having the entire pregnancy-- although I am now having some in my back and lower front abdomen. The doctor said yesterday if I had any contractions-- 5 in am hour to come in and he would take me... but he is not working today and I'm afraid if I go in, they will send me home since they aren't consistent... What should I do??

2nd Pregnancy but completly different than my first! :-) Thanks in advance everyone! :)

I guess the main question is, how frequent are they? If you are not in active labor, it sounds like you will be soon.
