Hi, Ladies! Due to a number of reasons, we'll be delivering our first at the local hospital. Luckily, it's a natural birth-friendly place, but I still would like to be there as little as possible. Our OB and labor nurse has told us to come in when contractions are one minute long, three minutes apart for at least two hours. Does that seem early? Also, if my water breaks, does anyone have advice/experience as to how long to go before letting the OB know? The last thing I want is to end up hooked to a pitocin drip at the hospital. This is all so new and we're thousands of miles from family in a new town, so any advice would be very appreciated!
