I understand that. I felt like I lived there sometimes. I went in though, nothing different with the 32 week incident where I dilated then started having contrax hard core. 6 shots of terb later each 20 min apart it stopped. I was really close to being put on mag.

I asked about terb. Or Procardia and he doesn't wanna start those this early especially if cervix is good. Wants to save something in reserve in case we need meds later on.

So orders to take it easy and just watch and wait for now
That is good news your cervix is still closed. Make sure you drink plenty of water. I noticed if I got behind in it it would kick the contrax up. I had a bottle of water with me at all times.
