I am 25 weeks pregnant. I have been having contractions for a few weeks now. This past weekend they got really bad and close together, so I went to the ER and they checked me and said I was fine, my cervix was a little under 3 cm and gave me a pill to help "relax" my uterus. So I thought everything was great. Then, I talked to a friend and she said it sounded wrong, so she asked her OB, since we are the same GA and she flipped. She said I should be on strict bed rest and they should never have let me walk out of there without keeping me over night. Then the med to relax my uterus was actually an anti-contraction medication! They knew I was in preterm and they sent me home anyway. Also, she said that anything under 3 cm is not good this early in pregnancy. She wants me to go back and demand steroid shots for the baby. So my question- anyone with a similar medical history, and what treatment did you receive?Answer Question
