    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Was at dr appt yesterday, was dialated to 2 cm. All afternoon yesterday was feeling lots of pressure in my lower back and bottom. Got up today not feeling any better, still feeling the pressure, and sick to my stomach a little. Thinking about going to hospital, but don't want to get there then they just send me home. Having a very hard time breathing. No contraction, that I can feel, but the pressure is bad enough. So confused! Don't want to play cat and mouse with the hospital!

    Hi Harely -

    Best to be safe and get checked out. Maybe your doctor's office can evaluate you.

    As I have heard from nurses and doctors - they would prefer you call, come in, get checked out and feel better, then waiting, wondering and worrying.

    Keep us posted and if this is baby time - wishing you a comfortable-as-it-can-be delivery!

    I agree with Elizabeth. Better to be safe than sorry! I would head in to the hospital. Let us know what you find out!
