How to stop Contractions Mercedes + 3 Due September 19 (girl); 34 kids; Longview, Washington 396 posts

I have been having really bad contractions. They hurt and are about every 10 minutes apart and lasting almost 40 seconds. I am 33 weeks and I want to know if there are any ways to slow down/ stop contractions.

If they are true contractions I'd consult your health care provider. I'd also lay down and make sure I was very hydrated.

Yes, this! Half the time, preterm contractions are caused by dehydration! Drink 3 8 ounces glasses of water, and rest on your left side. If that doesn't help, go to the hospital. Good luck!

I have an irritable uterus which causes me to have regular BH so I am supposed to start paying attention to the pain instead of how spaced apart they are
