Im 33wks 5days. I started having contractions last night at ten pm. I was having them egery 7-10 mins apart so they gave me two shots of something that should have stoped it but didnt work. So i got a shot in my tush cheek for stairoids for the baby, betamethozone i think? I have to get another one tomorrow. And fyi that shot hurts!
Now im hooked up to all kinds of things and getting a stronger dose of something to try and stop the contracting. Nothing seems to be working to stop them. Im pretty worried about this. They did an ultrasound and The baby looks completly fine. 5Lbs 2oz. They just cant get these contractions to let up. They are 3-5mins now and getting stronger. :'( and it doesnt help that no one can come up with a reason why i even started contracting already.

Many hospitals have wifi now. One hospital where I was a frequent patient even had computers in the room for patients to use. You can be in preterm labor and use a computer. You can be very ill and use a computer. I do it all the time. Patients at the chemotherapy IV center where I go every 3 weeks to get IV meds use computers all the time. I usually can't read or concentrate much because my meds for immune deficiencies take much longer than chemo and I feel worse but I can watch movies. Don't judge unless you know what you are talking about.
Doctors may only make rounds once a day. If you are asleep or gone to x-ray or somewhere when they come by, you are out of luck. There aren't doctors hanging around most hospitals waiting to answer patient's questions.
