Monday night I was having regular contractions 6 minutes apart lasting a minute so I went in to L&D and they stopped them with 2 injections of Terbutaline and sent me home with pills and instructions to see my doctor Thursday (tomorrow). They checked my cervix while I was there and it was firm and closed! By this morning I'd had enough of the pills because of really bad headache and racing heart so I called my doctor and he said to stop taking them, it's not worth the side effects and I'm pretty much on the "threshold" of 100% safe delivery anyway. Okay, so now I'm off the pills and have again been having contractions today but so far they aren't regular, but I also have some cramping and low back pain. Doctor says it's likely early labor but he said I can still wait to see him until tomorrow but if things seem to progress to go back to L&D today.
My question, finally , is how likely is this to progress into real labor? And how soon? I know I've heard of women contracting for weeks with no results...but I'm pretty worried she'll come early and they won't stop it since I'm 35 weeks. My doctor seems okay with her coming around 36 weeks if I can hold off that long. How likely is it that the contractions will stop and I'll get to term or later??
I'm also going to post this in baby club Thanks!!!
ETA: Oh and I haven't lost any plug or waters yet either.
This is actually good news! I'm fine with staying pregnant for at least two more weeks (three would be GREAT!) since we're not quite ready for this little one and I'd love to get all my final papers done first Nursery should be ready after this weekend though should she decide differently
