I am due June 26th ....and high risk with moderate gestational diabetes ( i am able to manage it with the pill of glyburude at dinner and a strict diet) And i also have a low papp A....bith put me at high risk for preterm labor and pre eclampsia. This week i started having two nst (stress tests) and a ultrasound to moniter everything.....well this morning at my nst i could feel my uterus getting hard and then slowly getting soft again ...and noticed that at its peak it would reach 17 or 18 and once it passed it end at 7 or 8......the nurse reviwed the paper and asked me if ive been crampy because the moniter showed that i was contracting and i told her yes she told me just to keep an on it. Well to make a long story short...friday morning i awoke with menstrual like cramping , and today after we left the hospital i continued to have irregual contractions....all the way up untill after dinner when i end up two really bad bouts of diaharria and a intense pressure in my rectum. I didnt want to have a false alarm and rush to L&D so i took a extra tylenol and took a nap.....woke up with a headache but hte cramping and contractions were gone.. my qeustions are Have any of you went into preterm labor nad had the symtpoms? or had these syptoms and never had anything become of the them..?
