  • Did you get Tributalene? I had to have that with both of my Children. Just take the medicine like you are supposed to and everything will be fine. Good Luck Mama.

  • Had them several times over. LOL. They shouldn't come back as long as you follow doctors orders. You may still get some braxton hicks if you over exert yourself. Did they prescribe you any Terbutaline or Brothine?? It will help if they did. At any rate if the contractions come back head back to the hospital. Most likely won't come back until you are ready to deliver though.
