My last child, who was born 4 years ago, was from first contraction to delivery 20 minutes long and delivered in our kitchen at home. I am currently 371/2 weeks prregnant with our 3rd child and am starting to lose my mucous plug. The last 2 check ups the doctor has said that she is head down and in the canal. The pressure is getting worse and I am scared of delivering at home again or the side of the road on the way to the hospital however I don't want to go to the hospital and be sent home. Do I go to the hospital or not? Any suggestions?View Thread
