Re: Contractions? And Q's for Preemie Moms..

My naturopathic Dr has me taking magnesium citrate, since last time labor started at 34 weeks. I have a dosage range to take, depending on how frequent/intense the contractions are... It's supposed to calm the uterus. I'm supposed to stop taking it at 36.5 (and I'm almost 33 now).

I never had regular contractions. I never knew when 'real' labor was starting. My prodromal labor lasted a month, and DS arrived at 38.5 weeks, perfectly healthy (though I thought I was going crazy from a month of labor).

I'm doing hypnobabies this time and plan on starting my 'baby stay IN' track if things really start up strong again... hopefully not!!

GL!! Really!! And yes, rest...
Pseudo-crunchy mama who is just tryin' to do the right thing for DS (Dec/09) and DD (April/11)
