Sunday I was sent to the MW with severe chest pains. I was put on the FNS monitor and an US dopplar to monitor baby's movement. I had 3 contractions in under 40mins. After a shot to stop the contractions, I was sent home after an hour nap.
This morning I woke up fine, but started to experience the chest pain again... within 5 minutes of the worst part of the pain hitting, I had a contraction. 22 minutes later, another. I called the drs office, and my ob was out, the MW nurse said if there aren't more than 4 in an hour, not to worry.
I am worried, my mother has a history of preterm labor and troubled pregnancies. Neither me nor my 3 siblings were deemed "normal" pregnancies...
When I have these contractions, should I go in to the MW anyway? Just to make sure they're not more frequent than what I can feel? (I didn't feel the first 5 or 6 hours worth on Sunday...) I'm afraid of preterm labor. i'm only 28wks...
