Uterine irritability?

I've been into labor and delivery twice in the past 4 days with what they called uterine irritability. I'm dilated to 1 1/2 cm 50% effaced, the first time I went in I was 1cm and only about 25% effaced so my cervix is changing between these episodes. I'm almost 23 weeks pregnant so this is kind of a big deal with it being so early so I'm on a strict schedule of 10mg of nifedipine every 6 hours.

Has anybody else ever had this kind of thing? When did you deliver? What did they do that helped put off delivery?

  • No thank heavens but I'm on bedrest and now 20mg every four hours to stop contractions. Doctor mentioned doing steroid injections in a week.
