I went to the hospital yesterday because I didn't feel baby B for a day. They hooked me up to machines and said both girls are great, B just changed positions. Then they asked me if I had any pain. I said well I am getting this stabbing pain and they said well the machine shows you are contracting every 3 min. Then it was every min. My cervix is closed. They gave me 2 shots, the contractions stopped and they sent me home with no bed rest. I am guessing they are not worried if I was sent home and not put on bed rest right?? Well all day I had no contractions but now I am getting some. Has this happened to anyone and what was the outcome for you? Thanks for sharing.
Will my cervix open tho if I keep getting them? And are my contractions BH of they gave me shots to stop them. I don't think they r BH bc when I asked she said "that's what we r trying to figure out" then came back and said "ok ur getting 2 many contractions time to stop them." on the other hand I was sent home with no bed rest so how worried could they be? I just don't like the feeling. I'm getting them now it feels like a stab in my back or on my lower right side. It's not like a tightening of stomach annoying pain it's an actual stab pain.
I never had any contractions or BH so can't really advise but if you are worried then please at least give the hospital a ring and see what they say or go down and get checked out especially as you have been having real contractions previously.
I just left a message with my doctor. I am not getting them as frequently now but thought it was best to just check since I was getting so many earlier this morning. I just don't want to be the girl who cried contractions lol. I'm afraid I will go in and the machine will show I am not getting any and they wont take me seriously next time. When I was in the hospital they said the pain I was getting was associated with a contraction so that is what I am basing this on. It is the same pain today as it was when I was there so I am guessing they are contractions. So confusing.
Please don't worry that if you go in and it's not contractions they won't take you seriously next time. You have every right to get checked out and I am sure they will understand at the hospital especially as you have had contractions already. I hope your doctor gets back to you asap but if they don't and you are worried I would go to the hospital. Always best to get checked out if you are worried. I understand not wanting to make a fuss but if it will give you peace of mind I would get checked. xx
I went to my doctor. They said my blood pressure is a bit high but still in the norm so they will keep an eye on it. Then the checked for contractions and they are showing but were not consistant so that is good. The plan is to not give me meds to stop the contractions. They want to see if this is the start of labor for me in which case they will give me a shot to help the girls lungs. After that not sure of the plan but I am guessing they will try and hold me off if they realize this is real labor. So now I am not on bed rest but am not allowed to stand for more than 15 min at a time. I can still go out but have to be sitting when I am out and can't stay out long. And the most important rule is to call if the contractions are consistant like they were this morning. Hopefully this is not the start of labor. Hope it is just my body is contracting bc I am as big as a 9 month pregnant person. ( that is their other theory) Only time will tell but crossing my fingers, toes, AND LEGS that I still have at least 4 more weeks. They know I have at least 2 from that test so that brings me to 34 weeks which is pretty good but would like to get to 36. For some strange reason, even with this contractions, I think I will make it to at least 36.
Me and my friend both had contractions from as early as 20wks hun. Occasionally they were painful, particularly for my friend, and she was convinced you was in labour all the time. She never got hooked up to a monitor but I know if I had mine would have registered as proper contractions. This is a very common finding with twins due to the additional uterine stretching. Rest up, drink pelnty of fluids and good luck x
