advice please please please!
« on: August 16, 2012, 09:44:13 pm »
So on Tuesday night I went to l&d cause I was having contractions I was 34w4d. they said I was having contractions, but wasn't dialating, gave me meds to stop the contractions, it worked and sent me home with a sleeping pill.

Today same issue. Went to l&d the mortar and Dr said I wasn't having contractions, and am only dialated to about a finger tip, which on Tuesday I wasn't at all. So they said they can't do anything its just pain from being pregnant.

I have a son and know what contractions feel like.I'm confused why are they telling me different things? Why would the meds take the pain away if it wasn't contractions? Why am I home in do much pain? What can I do? When do I actually go in, if this its the results?

Oh btw its every 5took mins.

Called the dr. they basically said oh well. When the hell do I actually go in?! They won't stop my contractions again cause I'm 35 weeks as of tomorrow. I'm so confused and frustrated ):

You poor thing, can u time them, u are having contractions, they just arent doing the work they are suposed to, just try and hang in there, I can only imagine how upset u are, take tylenol, take a shower, if they are unbearable go back in and demand pain relief, unfortunatly they wont admit u until ur dilating, they wont induce cause ur 35 weeks,real labor got to b close hun, big hugs, breathe

They have been 5 to 7 mins apart. I took a bath which usually helps, but nothing. I really hope they induce me as soon as they can I have an ultra sound on Tuesday and I will ask then, Idk why this its happening. I have lupus with this pregnancy so Idk if that could be the cause. Hopefully they will plan on inducing me as soon as its safe I'm so tired of all this pain..

Mine were like that for 2.5 weeks.  I was 5 cm by the time I actually went into labor...which only lasted two hours.  Hang in thete.  The further you are when labor really kicks in the better! Hang in there!

I am so sorry you are going thru this. I have a history of going into preterm labor & birth, & yeah it frustrates me when they make me feel like the second girl up there said. The baby has to be sticking out b/4 they think you're serious. Even if you're spotting or bleeding, it seems like you have to be loosing pints of blood b/4 they this think you're serious. I suppose if you can do things at home to relax like hot showers, staying extra hydrated, and laying on your left side should help until You go back in. But on the other hand if you're concerned just go back in anyways. Good luck & God bless.

I had that for 3 weeks. It prepares you and baby. I know it's rough but it sounds like things are moving along. If you start moaning you might want to go in again. In the meantime, get on all fours, soak in a bath, sit on a yoga ball, remember to be calm, relaxed, deep slow breaths. (hugs)

Keep drinking and if you just can't eat, try smart water, nutrition shakes, even a banana milkshake. :) I'm so sorry, I wish I was there!

Oh, you're welcome! You're in my thoughts and prayers. We are due around the same time and hubby.and I aren't even having sex right now because I have too much going on right now to risk going into labor!
