Having Contractions

So, I'm 35 weeks and I'm getting nervous about what to do here. I had a doctor appointment on Wenesday and my docor told me that he thought I was going to go early and my baby had already dropped. He actually dropped when I was about 33 weeks. I thnk I might have lost my mucus plug a couple of days ago too.....but I'm not sure. The doctor didn't seem concerned and he sent me home and told me he would see me next week. Last night I started having an upset stomach and ended up having diareah all night. I thought that was strange and I know that can be a sign of early labor. I woke up at 4:00 and was having regular contractions every 10 minutes. We timed them until 5:30 and ended up going to the hospital. The monitored me for about 4 hours. They made me drink a bunch of water and told me I had a urinary tract infection and they gave me meds for that. After a while my contractions went away and they sent me home. Now I'm having contractions again...but I don't want to go back just to be sent home again....what do you guys think?

I don't know....nobody has checked me. I didn't get to see an actual doctor today, and when I saw my doctor on Wednesday he said he wasn't going to start checking to see if I was dialated until I'm 38 weeks.....The contractions I'm having now are stronger than last night and closer together......I'm probably going to give it another 1/2 hour and if it doesn't get better I'm going to go back...

Go back to the hospital, or call the Dr. Someone should check you just to be sure. I
