Would you quit taking procardia at 35 weeks??

My body wants to give birth and it is so uncomfortable. and it's scary because i have so much pain i don't want to be in labor for days and days and not know it until there is a major problem. my first two children were born healthy at 36 weeks with no need for tubes or NICU. Also going by my LMP i should 37 weeks. He said some people have crazy ovulation and they judge by the ultrasound i had at 9 weeks and not my LMP. I just feel like it can't be good to be fighting this!!

I reposted bc i really need some advice and only got 3 answers

  • that needs to come from your doctor, not people on CM...I was on trebutaline and procardia and was on it until I delivered....I even went into preterm labor about 4 times and they had to give it to me through an IV...I would not suggest going off of it, UNLESS it's ok'd by your doc. ...

  • why are you taking procardia??? That's a cardiac med right?? I guess it would depend on why you are taking the medication and what your Doc says. I wouldn't do ANYTHING that would make me go into labor that early!!

  • yes it was for preterm labor, the nurse said he might want me to come off of it last week but i never heard back from them. i go to the doc tues.....i am having contractions like 2-3 hours before my next dose is due
