An unexpected L&D visit

Hi everyone.  Today I visited my obstetrician's office for my 35 week (technically 34 + 6) appointment.  Everything was going fine, but I mentioned the back pain that had steadily been increasing this week.  The physician's assistant decided she wanted to go ahead and swab me for Group B strep and also run a cervical check just in case.  The cervical check was painful, even more so because my back protested me lying on it.  The cervix was still high and closed, but she was concerned about my discomfort, even though I tried to down play it.  She looked at me at the conclusion of the exam and told me she was sending me to Labor and Delivery immediately and that the hospital would be awaiting my arrival.  Ummm, okay.
