If the hospital couldn't stop them, I doubt any home remedies will. I may be wrong, though.

Since you're 35 weeks, I'd be more worried about the contractions not stopping. I hope you don't pop until 37 weeks!

if they're not dilating you then they aren't real labour contractions. So don't worry when the time comes for baby to arrive your contractions will do something to your cervix :)

One of my closest friends had her baby like 3 months ago, she was contracting less than 10 min apart for a couple of weeks before she went to actual labor. But when the time came her body started dilating and she had her baby no problem, I belive she was 2 weeks early.

If they said that you're thin then that probably means they're saying that you're effacing with is cervical change and means that you have no worries as far as them eventually being effective, they're doing exactly what they're supposed to do.....just 2 weeks too soon. And with relaxation and no more cervical checks you could very well unefface, it happened to me.

so you baby's lungs would be roughly the same condition as those of a 36-37 weeker which is pretty decent, all considering.
