Now, might be the time, to order your kiddo a pizza and a pay per view movie. get sleeping bags out and convince him to that it would be fun to pretend to camp in the TV room or something. I have no shame, I bribe my kids when I need to. LOL

yes they can and I agree with mem82. bribery goes a long way. You need to rest, drink some water and try to stay calm.

Drink lots of water and relax as much as possible. If the continue you can get come Calcium/Magnesium from any local drug store to stop the contractions. It works great! Good Luck

Absolutely. I think that finding out my sons second brain surgery had failed was what pushed me over the edge into full preterm labor last time.
