im 35+5 and haven't felt right since yesterday. just really sick and painful cramps. it's got a lot worse today so i've just started timing them to see if this could be it!

does anyone know what happens if it is the real thing before you're full term? do you have to go straight to hospital or can you still stay at home? don't know what the advice is but don't want to ring anyone yet to be sat in hospital for no reason sad

I had contractions at about 35 weeks and they wanted me in for monitoring. Once it was established everything was ok I was sent home so was probably only in hospital for about 4 hours - personally I'd ring and ask just to be on the safe side.
