  • When are you actually due? If it's any consolation, it sounds like you might be close.

  • I remember being told that the first stages (the first part of dilating until you get real contractions that are evenly spaced out) can last up to 48 hours. I didn't have any of that because my water broke without me contracting like I should. I waited 24 hours for contractions that never came and was induced after.

  • How far along are you? Babies definitely come when they want. I would say walking and lots of sex.. Male semen contains a chemical in it that can soften the cervix and help ripen it. I went 35 weeks with my 1st baby, and 40 weeks 4 days with my second lol.

  • If you are 34 weeks having contractions, you need to go to the hospital and see if they can stop them.

  • With my first two children, I went into labor starting at 28 weeks, I went to 35 weeks with my first baby.. and I went to 40 weeks, 4 days with my second. I lasted full term with my second due to all the drugs they gave me to prevent preterm labor. I am now high risk with my third, so I know what you are talking about with "not being able to carry to full term".. But you certainly do NOT want to sit around and go into labor at 34 weeks. They can give you terbutalane shots

  • I know your ready to be done but as a mother of other premies you should know how much of a struggle it is for such a tiny baby to fight for it's life when they are born early.

    I would SERIOUSLY recommend you go to the hospital to get check and see if they can stop labor. I would much rather MYSELF be sick than my BABY being fighting for his life!
