  • I the doctor. It could always be Braxton-Hicks, but it could be something more serious.

  • Not bleeding at all. Last sunday I was in the L& D for contractions. Nothing out of ordinary except for the cramping.

  • I had to have 2 shots of terbutaline, and 2 IV bags because of dehydration. I wasnt dialated though.

  • i would stil go in and get checked if you had to have them stopped then this couldbe them happening again i would go just to be safe
    i had to have 3 shots so if i felt that kind of pain i would be in the L&D quicker then anything

  • Definitely get checked! I had my middle son at 28 weeks. I started having sharp pains which i thought was my baby trying to find a comfy spot. The pain didnt go away and eventually my water broke. With my third son, I was complaining about sharp pains again at 28 weeks. My OB put me on bedrest at the hospital for a week due to me being dialated at 1cm and a short cervix. Had my little guy at 29 weeks. So I would definitely call your OB or head down to the ER.
