Preterm contractions

So I spent last night at the hospital with contractions... I had to have fluids. Cause they thought I was dehydrated and of course I was not( this is my 2nd pregnancy I do know I need lots of water) so I had to have not just one shot to stop contractions but two... Was really just wondering who has been through this before? How far a lot you were? And if you had the baby early? I am only 32 weeks and am really freakin out... Now I am on light duty stuff I can't do anything to cause contractions again... Pretty much walking bed rest grrrrrr..... HELP

I did, I was 34 weeks with my 2nd and I was having contraction, dilated from 2-3 cent while I was there in L&D for an hour.

I got a shot of tributalin.  Went back the next week, got another shot.  I had my daughter at 38w2d.

good luck, even if babe is early at this point, things will look good, weight will be down but the stuff that needs to be there is.

I am 25 weeks and have been on full bedrest for a week :/ I have to stay on bedrest until I'm 36 weeks , I feel like the next 11 weeks will drag by! I was on bedrest with my last from 29-36 weeks. I has him at 37 weeks.  It's rough to be on bedrest but it helped me stay pregnant at least I think so . I hope the next few weeks fly by for you!

That's what worries me... I don't want her to have to go to nicu... I just want very thing to be okay... I keep telling everyone it's walking bed rest... An as much as I would love a day of not stressing over te house or what it is my son is trying to eat off the floor I can't... I am a mom and a wife, a aunt and a niece and a daughter in law... There is too many people that need stuff done in my house and my husband can't do it all... So I wish I could take a step back but I can't... I have thugs that have to get done... I have known all along that I would not make it to my due date but I did not think it would start this early...I feel like these next 8 weeks are going to be stressful and very hard....

I had preterm labor that started at 21 weeks. Was in the hospital at 21, 27, 32 and 35 weeks. No fun. Just keep up with the fluid intake and lots of rest!
