    I need some information from my fellow mommies,

    Trying to make a long story short.....
    Sunday I had an unusual uneasy feeling, just didn't feel well.
    Wednesday night...I experienced menstrual cramping.
    Last night (Friday-Saturday) I woke up to menstrual cramping and low back pain.

    Call nurse and went in....I was having contractions/bh regularly with low back/pelvic achiness. I had dilating 1cm. But they said my cervix is hard and long. They gave me a I shot of med to relax my uterus and sent my home.

    Is this preterm labour?? Or normal during 3rd trimester?

    I am only 24 weeks, but pg with twins. My uterus is about 28 or so cm high from pelvic bone up. Should I be concerned??

    I had tons of bh contractions starting at 18 weeks--30 to 40 a day!!. I went in once and they gave me medicine to stop the contractions. But, I was only ever dilated about 1/2 a cm--so the doctor thinks. My cervix was always so long she never could really tell. Well, I still worked up 36 weeks, worked out until 32 weeks and had the girls electively at 37 weeks.
