Actually since she was already 3cm and there is Less movement - she NEEDS to get to the hospital As soon as possible.
and considering she is contracting every 6 minutes now, MORE than likely she is in ACTIVE labor and probably WILL be admitted this time.
And, more than likely the baby IS alive, but when you have labor pains, this can detract the mother to be from noticing the movement of the baby -
I hope this helps
