Continuous Contractions? ..Neelie.. 1 child; Cave City, Kentucky 648 posts

I went into pre-term labor twice at 33 weeks, I will be 36 weeks wednesday. Anyways the past couple of days my contractions have really stirred up again, along with the TONS of discharge (Tmi srry) and pelvic pressure. I have been having constant contractions for 2 days now 15 to 20 mins. apart and sometimes 10 mins apart. I called L&D last night and they said not to really worry until they are at least 5 mins apart.
So my question is, how normal is it to have contractions so continuously and should I be concerned?

at 36 weeks I would say normal. I went into preterm labor at 34 weeks. They gave me 2 shots to stop it and then sent me home after they were able to stop it. I also got a prescription of procardia for 2 weeks. After 36 weeks I could go into labor and they wouldn't stop it. A few days before 37 weeks I was constantly having contractions but not close enough to go to the hospital. 37 weeks hit and I had close enough contractions. When I got to the hospital my water broke.

just keep track of how long they are lasting and the time inbetween... dont stress yourself (thinking something is wrong) if any thing your body is getting ready.. the pelvic pressure is probally the baby moving down into birthing postion... it will be time sooner than you know.. good luck

Oh and at the doctor a couple weeks ago I was already2cm dialated and 80% affaced. And with these contractions i've been having lately there's no telling what it is now.

when it is that time you sound like you are going to go fast... you know your body... if you think you should go to the ER than go... or maybe see how things go tonight...
