Had anyone had braxton hicks that seem like labor on the monitor?

I am 24 weeks and 6 days and I started having cramps and things that felt like contractions for the last two days. Well it started getting bad so I am not at the hospital and on the monitor is look like labor and not they are giving me meds to stop the contractions because it is too soon.

Has anyone else gone through this? What happened ? and if you delivered how long was your child in the hosiptal?

  • If they're picking it up on the monitor and trying to stop the contractions, its the real deal not braxton hicks.

    I've known a few ppl deliver at 23 weeks, 25 weeks and 33 weeks and their babies are healthy little ppl now.
    There are a lot of risks and medical issues that can occur. It certainly something you need to speak with your dr about.
