  • if they are getting closer together then you need to go to the ER because you are in labor

  • I started labor at 35 weeks. I went to the hospital to be monitored and they gave me a shot of something to stop labor. I don't recommend that shot... speeds up your heart like you're running a marathon and you feel like you can't breathe... the second time I went into premature labor (a couple days later) they put me on the pill form. I ended up going into hard labor and delivering at 38 weeks. (37-42 weeks=fullterm)

  • I started having contractions at 30 weeks. I continued to have them until I delivered at 39 weeks. I was in the hospital the whole time, being monitored.

  • They may be BH contractions.

    BH contractions can also be uncomfortable or painful.

    I started having pre-term labor a 33 weeks with my youngest. I went to the ER and was checked out. After 2 hrs. of being hooked up to that dang monitor, I thought they were gonna let me go home.
    Fat chance.
    They admitted me to the high-risk unit and continued to monitor me for the next 24 hrs. then sent me home with two prescriptions (one was Brethine, and I forgot the other).

    You could very well be having contractions but not LABOR contractions, so that's why they sent you home. Just try to take it easy for the night, and if its still going on in the morning, call your doctor or go to the ER.
