Re: Still having irregular contractions...opinions?
I am 35 weeks now, but at 27 weeks I was having contractions and my doctor ended up sending me to the hospital. When monitored, I was having them every 2 minutes and I was given injections to stop them. I was not dialating, thank God, and kept on meds and sent home couple days later. I've been off work since, told to take it easy and not allowed to go back. I'm still on medication at 35 weeks, but can quit maybe next week. I still get strong contractions and sometimes they will be every 5 minutes for a couple hours so I drink alot of water, and lay down on my left side or just rest and they seem to let up. Keep your bladder empty, sex and orgasm or nipple stimulation makes you contract as well, so limit that. I would just say stay in close contact with your doc and see if they would want to put you on any meds to control them. You don't want to start having cervix changes because then you can't really stop things as easy. I also had the different discharge maybe around 30 weeks, no blood though, and my doctor wasn't too concerned since my cervix was still doing well.
Don't be afraid to keep checking with your doc, thats why they get paid the big bucks! Hang in there!
