Hi Im 17 years of age. Im a 35 weeks

Patient

Q: Hi Im 17 years of age. Im a 35 weeks pregnant. Last night I had woke up with severe cramping like if I had started my menstrual cycle. I went to the hospital because I was having contractions which were five minutes apart. I haven't seen my midwife and wont see her for four weeks which is ridiculous. She was at the hospital but she didnt check me. A nurse had checked me and just sent me home with medication to help with the pain. Nurse said that I wasnt having an contractions and that if my pain worsens its unnecessary to bring me back. Question is they didn't do an ultrasound to see if my baby was in distress nothing. Should I be worried im still having pain and my midwife sucks
