  • You could be dehydrated, try drinking 32 oz of water withing an hour it will help get you hydrated a lil. Because if you go into L&D for what you think is preterm labor, and your just dehydrated they'll hook you up to an iv and keep the baby and you on a monitor for hours.

  • Have you called your doctor yet? Are you well hydrated? Are you swollen? Are you running a fever? It does sound worth checking out. How early would you be? We had two premies but they were born by emergency C section and the lessening movement with Braxton Hicks contrations was a symptom of placenta starting to separate.

  • oddfox, well my baby has been moving less and im on meds for contractions, but like i tried to tell my ob its not really working if something happens i will raise more hell then they could ever believe. i pee out water because ive been drinking sooo much, im only at 28 weeks. i also have this gas type pain in my going to probably call in here in a few minuets when my husband gets back. im not really swollen, at times i get a bit but nothing i think is serious..i always have a slight temp this last month, my ob did blood work because L&D told him about it and it came back " with normal pregnancy variations" they said
