26th Aug '08

i went to the bathroom and noticed brown stuff comming out so i went to the emergency room. Turns out i was having contractions every 5 minuets and am 1 &1/2 cm dialated. They gave me a shot to stop the contractions and now i have to take terbutaline every 4 hours and im on strict bed rest. Im going insane! My baby is ok they gave me 2 steroid shots in (very painful!) and did an ultrasound he weighs about 3 pounds 2 oz. Anyone else here go in to early labor? I have a friend who did and she is still on bed rest but the one nurse told me i may be able to stop taking the meds and they might take me off bed rest at 35 or 36 weeks.She also told me i might end up going overdue from the medicine:(

Good luck honey. My biggest fear is pre-term labor. I have already started losing my mucus plug (piece by piece). I am due 2 days after you. The last time I was checked, I was still closed but with my plug already coming out, I might be in the same boat. I pray everything works out and you keep that lil turkey inside until he is done!

The same thing happened to me at 33 weeks... they stopped it and I was also on Terbutaline, every 6 hours though. It made me feel awful so I quit taking it a few days ago. I had to quit working and am on partial bed rest until Friday when I'm 36 weeks. Keep your little one in there!!!

I've been in labor 2x this pregnancy so far. I had a cerclage placed at 20 weeks due to incompetent cervix. I had labor at 19 weeks and most recently at 24 weeks. Every day I have regular contractions about 4 min apart but doc says that my cervix is not changing with them so come in if things start to feel different. I'm 28 weeks 3 days now and take nefedipine pills every 4 hours but they really don't help with the contractions at all. I'll be so happy if I end up going overdue after all this!!! Every day that I make it is a blessing and I know my little boy is growing stonger all the time. I had a transvag. ultrasound this morning to measure my cervix and it was at 4cm!!! That was a really great feeling. I really hope you can get your little one to hang out with you for a while longer cause every day counts!!! Good luck and try not to miss any pills.
