That's not right at all. My MIL was at a good 3-4 at 30 weeks an they put her on a mag drip to stop her labor.

Well yea because baby needs to stay in for a few more weeks. They should be doing everything they can to keep baby in.

Is there another hospital near by? If so, check yourself out of that hospital and go to a different one. (Yes you CAN do that)
If there's no other hospital request a different doctor and demand a second opinion.

I was a 3 cm at 22 weeks with my DD. and around 4 cm by 30 weeks I was put on complete bed rest after a week stay in the hospital. I was told not to do anything. Not to pick up anything and no sex. I was having contractions every 2 mins. The dr gave me meds to stop them and gave me meds to help with the babies lungs.
You Dr. sounds a little crazy.

No shit. Because your baby is too early. I don't understand why they would have given you pitocin at all. I have had my doctor not attempt to stop labor due to me having preemies before and my reaction to mag but they never have and never will try to speed it up no matter how dilated I was. Oh...and I've had a different doctor with all 4 of my preemies so...it's not like this is just one doctor's opinion.

i really thought that was going to be his first plan..that is y i came in so they can stop my contractions because i am too early but he really blew me out of the water when he checked me and i was already 3-4 cm dialated 60% effaced...my water has not broken so i thought he would just send me home

Your doctor sounds like a f**king idiot. I was at 5cm at 35 weeks and they stopped my contractions it only worked for a few days but still. 34 weeks is way to early for them to try to induce you.

....they can still stop contractions. I'm currently almost 4 cm. 33 weeks. Was in preterm labor. I've been at the hospital for a week with them monitoring me. They were going to give me the meds to stop contractions. Only reason they didnt is because my blood pressure was too low for the meds. My labor coincidentally stopped on it's own but they are still keeping me.



So if your doc told you they can't stop it they are full of crap. Lol. I'm surprised they'd use pitocin so early.

I hope not! You should request to talk to another doctor.
