Braxton Hicks vs real contractions UPDATE

 Last night I had contractions for 6+ hours. Every 15-20 min. I had some back pain, stomach tightening, & some pelvic pressure. I drank 3 bottles of water trying to get them to stop. Finally I was so tired I fell asleep. So far no this morn. Not sure if I should call my dr since they stopped I have a appt on Tues.

Went to OB because of contractions. Dr said everything looks ok. They did a fetal fibronectin test to check if its preterm labor. I'll know the results hopefully tomorrow. But was told if contractions come back like last night to go to L&D to be monitered.

If they stopped I wouldn't worry for now keep an eye out and stay hydrated and get calcium/magnesium supplements

YAY ~ good advice from your OB/health care team!!! Don't ever hesitate to call and ask your doctor, midwife or health care team about any questions or concerns you may have. They are there to educate and inform you ~ that's their job!!! And  always ~ and trust your gut.

Big Hugs,
Connie
