  • did they give you medication and told you to stay on bed rest? that's what happened to me in my first pregnancy, 33w&6d, I had contractions that were 5 minutes apart for 2 hours, went to hospital, had contractions that were 2 minutes apart for 2 more hours and then they stopped it with a shot, gave me medication and put me on bed rest. i did not dialate from all that, luckily...but, still they said i was starting, it's a good thing they know how to stopit....i didn't have my baby until after my due date, after all that. you need to relax, drink plenty of water and follow your OB's orders.

  • Yes...I had one terbutaline injection with my first because I was 90% thinned and 1-2 cm open at 33 weeks. I did not deliver until I was induced 4 days past my due date.
