Hello everyone my name is Mallory I am 36w&1day pregnant. I am having a little girl. We choose Emma Lucille. I am having contractions but I don't want to go to the hospital and they send me home. I lost my mucus plug today(sorry if that is to much information) I am wondering if I should go in or not. They are like six minutes apart, and it hurts my lower back bad. What should I do?

If they remain constant and are getting worse no matter what you do like you can't talk through them pain then go in. I hate going in myself and being sent home. You can try drinking lots of water and resting to see if they progress and get worse to the point where  you cannot talk while having one. your lower back should hurt along with the cramping of the uterus contracting you will feel it everywhere.  How long have they been 6 min apart? When in doubt at least call them for their advice.
