So I'm at the hospital getting my non stress test and she says I'm having contractions 2 minutes apart..i cant feel them though so theyre not strong. I'm only 33 weeks. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to have this boy soon though right? They are probably going to check my cervix to see if I'm dialated any. I am jat really nervous! Any words of wisdom moms?

Yes jus bcuz ur having contractions doesn't mean he's coming.  They do need to check ur cervix to see how dialated u r. But ur still early and they may give u sumthing to slow them down. Either way good luck I believe u will b ok.

How exciting, I know I was at the hospital a lot with my first baby thinking I was labor .However, you will contract a lot during week 30 , it does not necessarily mean you are in labor , it just means your body is preparing itself for the actual labor. The best indication will be dialating. This will be the determining factor as to if you are really in labor, and even then things are not certain! You will know if you are truly in labor as the contractions will be strong, and the nurse wont have to tell you you are contracting, you will know!lol.. I would say be patient, and don't get to anxious, because you can be let down if you aren't actually in labor. But nevertheless praying everything works out for you and the baby..congrats

I won't be let down. I don't want him to come this early! Lol. I have to go to the hospital once a week for non stress tests because I have had a stillborn so they want to keep an eye on me. He deff needs to bake at least another month!

Well looks like contractions have stopped now ladies. Going to keep me here another 30 minutes and then send me home as long as nothing changes. They didn't even check my cervix. But I have a doctors appointment next week and I'm sure they will then.

Keeping me overnight to monitor me because of my history of a stillborn. I'm so exhausted! Baby is active. Heartbeat is good but they wanted to keep me because there was a slight drop in heart rate. I don't think its anything to sorry about. It only happens every so often. Could be normal for all we know doctor said since we don't monitor all women u to 40 wks pregnant.
