desperately seeking advice at 23 wks...

this is my 5th pregnancy and none of the others have made it. i am now at 23 wks and contractions have already started. thankfully i am not dilated at all yet but the contractions are not stopping. does anyone have any advice or info on what i can possibly do to ease up the contraction pain and somehow manage to get it to stop? i'm terrified of losing another...we know this is our last chance. any advice will be greatly appreciated. i'm terrified. thanks for listening. ~bekah

  • go to the doctor. have they put you on any meds to prevent the contractions? i'm not very helpful but i remember reading somewhere about something similar and the lady finally worked with an ob/gyn who treated her successfully. my heart goes out to you. get second and third opinions from medical doctors. do your research. good luck bekah. i hope everything works out well.

  • have you talk to your doc he or she should give you something to stop them i would take it easy like lay down and try not to do a whole lot maybe read a book to take your mind off of it the more you strees about it will make it worse i no its hard to not think about but put your mind to something else for a little awhile and take it easy see if that will work

  • Drink a gallon of water a day (yes, a GALLLON), bed rest, also a tincture of Black Haw root (please check with your doctor about this one).
