  • I would call your doctor ASAP with these question hun. Being your first child and all preg. are differnt no one here can really give you safe information.

  • you might just want to give your doctor a call let him know what is goin on. if you are in labor there would be a slim change that the baby would make it but at the same time if you are and you get to the doctors in time they can try to stop the labor. good luck hope everything works out

  • Most drs wont even try to save a baby at 21 weeks. Usually its 23-24 and those baby's have less than a 25% chance. I think you just ate something bad and it has given you the runs. Try eating a raw potato or rice those are binding foods. Also call the dr and let them know so you can be checked to make sure nothing really is wrong. If your cervix is high and hard as it should be at this point in pregnancy no it doesn't hurt the baby at all. Make sure you drink lots of water and lay down on your left side to reduce any stress to the baby. The runs during pregnancy aren't fun but if you see things like blood or start spotting you need to get to a dr.

  • There is a chance of survival at 21 weeks,
    Its just a very slim chance but id never lose hope,
    i dont think your going thru labor, this happend to me, too,

    i tryed hard to hold it in and sleep this little thing off but i couldnt and i blew it up in the tolit lol feeling the urge to push ..means you must be feeling pressure?
    i would indeed call the doctor, and ask what this means i know sometimes it means preterm labor, but with todays medication they can stop the labor and put you on bedrest until its best to take the little one,
    just make sure she isnt in distress while these urges to push are not really silent contractions,

    call him or her now to see what you should do,
