35 weeks,contractions every 2-4 minutes lasting 30 seconds UPDATE # 15.


Hey everyone. I'm 35 weeks almost. Had pre term labor at 31 weeks. Been on bed rest since. Had a BPP done today and baby girl is weighting in at 5lb 8oz. For the last 30 minutes ish i have been having contraptions, semi painful But breath and talkthrough able. They seem are every 2-4 minutes lasting 30 seconds each. Going to wait longer to see if they last as I've been told at this point they'd just let me deliver her.

Think if she comes she'll be ok?

Does this sound like it could be the start or just a tease?

Well no one can say for sure if everything will be ok, but chances are she will be just fine at 35 weeks
She might need a bit of help at first (some common things are oxygen, jaundice, and she might have a few feeding issues) but she'll probably be totally fine. My son was born a week later (35+6) and was A-OK after a few days and feeding well after a week. And especially if the docs are ready to deliver, I'm sure she'll be perfect!

It does sound like it could be the start of things though!! Exciting - keep us posted!

Thanks ladies. I think I'm going to give it another hour unless they get really strong and bad. Just don't want to go in if it's just going to randomly stop. We will see in a bit.

Also did the docs say how soon they wanted you to go in? Because my LO was early and labour was fast, I've been told to go in once labour starts! xx
Especially if it's before 37 weeks!

She never really said anything about when I should go in. I'm going to call L&D soon. I got up and went pee and they seemed to have a little(0 minutes) break before redrafting. Now they don't seem quite as strong. Hmm. Maybe just false labor or painful Braxton hicks. Also they only seem to be hurting in the bottom half of my bump along with pressure.

I would definitely call! At least to let them know about the preterm labour etc, and contractions. They might want you to come in xx

I have my Biophysical Profile today too and I have to say I am totally jealous because they would not do weight with mine. I asked and she said that it was not part of the order. But I too am having some pretty painful and regular contractions so I am going to wait it out a little while longer unless they get worse quickly. I am only 33 weeks so you have a couple of weeks on me however the tech said she thinks that just by looking baby is big for gestation because he has no room whatsoever and she could barely get him to move and dr has said they will let me deliver him, im just concerned about what will happen if I go into active labor and he does not turn because at the ultrasound today he was breech.

i was born 5 lbs 6oz at full term...your baby is doing great!

it did sound like my braxton hicks do(i have an irritable uterus) but i think yours seemed to last longer? it is hard to tell on here sometimes!

did you go to l&d?
