    Default Should I call the hospital?

    Last night I woke up numerous amounts of times cause of contractions and all day today been having contractions but not painful, just very very tight and I lost my mucous plug about an hour and half ago.. The contractions are irregular though but just keep coming. This is my first pregnancy so not to sure whether I should call the hospital.. Oh and also having a bit of lower back pain.

    You could call and they will likely tell you to go in, but if contractions aren't painful and regular do you really want to spend all those extra hours stuck in a room?

    If you are worried, call. Always listen to your gut instinct.

    I'm 3 days overdue. They're irregular but very intense and last for about 40 seconds but aren't painful at all.. But I do have a bit of back pain. They've been happening all last night and all day today.

    When you know, you know.. My BH contractions went on for weeks; the night before I started labour they moved into my lower back. 1pm the next day they kicked in and it was just totally different to Braxton hicks. Good luck!!
