Only if the cord is wrapped around the fetus' neck, I think.

They can cause the baby distress, yes. But only the real ones, not BH.

If they're strong enough the baby can go into fetal distress but you can also contract for months without that ever happening. Most of the time no, they don't hurt the baby.

thank you guyz. but for some reason my doc is concerned. im dilated to a two and 90 % effaced. he said wants to keep the baby in there for a couple more weeks he told me that last week. i so i dont why he wants me too have the baby. i mean my body started to go in labor and they stopped it. and my doc ask me if i am still cramping i told me yes and he said well we have to keep the baby in a little bit longer and i said okay.
