    Being a physician, one of the things I worry about most is a patient who has a high risk of preterm delivery who has some potential symptoms of preterm labor and does not call or come in and get evaluated.

    So, obviously, you should call!!! the worst thing is going and and coming home. It is not a big deal for us.

    I get most disappointed when a patient has been taught about the signs and symptoms and does not call.

    please contact your healthcare provdier and let them know.
