Contractions stopped ?!?!? Brandi Lynn White 18 kids; Ravenna, Ohio 519 posts16th Sep '12
I was having contractions about every 5 to 7 mins for 8 hours today and now nothing. I know I have 3 weeks to go but since I have a bicornute uterus I was told preterm labor would be nothing new, but man I was getting excited. Anyone have any ideas on how to get them to come back. (Husband is not here so sex would be a no) I still have alot of pressure and i am very uncomfortable in the pelvis.

Oh and they said he is already 7lbs and chunky so that would not be a problem

They stopped because you're baby isn't ready to be born yet. Nothing will make you go into labor until your child is ready. and with the whole 7 pounds and chunky.. that's just an estimate, they don't actually know how big your baby will be.

Quoting Brandi Lynn White:" Oh and they said he is already 7lbs and chunky so that would not be a problem"I would call your ob and see what they want you to do. No one is going to give you tips on how to induce labor. The weight they told you is just an estimate. So it can be a problem, you have no idea how big/small he really is.

Keep your bub in there. Preterm labor might not be anything new, but its not something you should do on purpose. Be patient, and hope your son will be too.
