i am 37 weeks now.problem is my hospital is 2 hours away from my house.if there is traffic it can tale longer. i am bit worried now. how much time will i have if labour starts or my water breaks ? what should i do ? doc gave a fue date of 22 nd aug last time i met her. i consulted another gynaec said head is down nd engaged. what to do ? when to expect ? i am getting restless

to be very honest I don't know how it feels when water breaks. because I didn't had water in the last time. it was already broken some day, and I didn't find it. what I can suggest is keep your bag ready. whenever you feel the flow of water is higher and you are getting pains. pain doesn't come constantly. it's like it comes and go. if till your due date you don't get your water ball break then it's fine. otherwise you will.make it. don't worry

try to find a second option if posbl...
if not...as soon as water breaks (in case of water break dont wait for pain...)or labour  pain starts head to hospital...(it usually starts as back ache types)
dont wait much...
baby will still take time to start moving down and coming out...al the best

if possible make arrangements to stay near the Hospital....in any relatives house or so. just to be on the safe side dear. and keep a delivery bag handy...pads...clothes..nightys..baby clothes...waste cloths...cotton clothes to clean and stuff

yes i have already my hospital bag. in house all the arrangements are made to welcome the baby. only this dielemma is killing cause of this uncertainty even my husband isnt able to plan his leaves.

don't worry you will have ample time before delivery. in my case my water broke around 11 in the night and my baby was delivered around 7:30pm next day. I had no labour pain which was later on induced to me via medicine
