  • All my babies have been preemies, but yet, you worry that someone would frown upon you going in to the L&D room, just to check, give me a break already.

  • When you see your doctor again, ask for Terbutaline to help lower the risk of preterm labor.

  • Call the nurse line on the back of your insurance card and have them advise. If you do not have an insurance card then call the L&D dept at the hospital and have them advise.
