I'm 28 weeks pregnant, and last night SO and I were watching a movie and I started having REALLY painful contractions only a couple minutes apart. It scared the crap out of both of us and he took me into L&D. They kept me there for a few hours and had to give me medicine to slow down the contractions. I've had a lot of braxton hicks contractions before but these felt different. They checked my cervix and said I wasn't dialated but that it was soft, and other than that everything was okay and the baby was moving a ton. I wasn't dehydrated but they gave me fluids anyway, medicine to stop the contractions, and when they started slowing down they sent me home because I was really uncomfortable with the IV in my hand and really tired because it was after 3 am by the time we left. I got home and went to bed and had a couple contractions that woke me up or made me cry in my sleep and SO woke me up because it scared him. After a few hours of uncomfortable sleep I finally passed out enough to sleep until about 11 today, and today has been much better I've only had a handful of contractions since I woke up this morning. They told me to be on bed rest so I've been in bed all day.
Has anybody had a scare similar to this? And is my cervix being soft something to worry about?
