Re: worried about thinning cervix only 23 weeks
I had preterm labor at 25 weeks, having contractions (every 5 minutes) and they also said I was dehydrated. They told me if you're having more than 4-6 contractions (the tightening), even if braxton hicks contractions, in one hour that it needs to be taken seriously. They told me to immediately rest, put my feet up, drink 4 glasses of water (at least). If the contractions continue after another hour that I should go to the ER, or call the office. After that, I only had one other experience where I was having too many contractions and when I did all the things they recommended, the contractions stopped again. I have been much better too about drinking the 64 oz. of water a day too, so I think that has helped overall. Are you now trying to stay well hydrated? I carry a water bottle with me literally everywhere, even to parties or the doctors office.
I do agree though, it seems to me if you are already having cervical thinning along with the contractions that you should be bedrested, but I'm not the doctor. Have you asked the doctor's office this over the phone? I can't understand making you wait until June 8th!!
I think the best thing you can do is to bedrest yourself for now (as much as possible) and drink 8 glasses of water a day minimum. And if the contractions are ever more than 4-6 in an hour and continue, you need to go back to the ER.
