Yup, me too. I started having an irritable uterus with my twin pregnancy at 22 weeks. I was put on procardia and bedrest. I spent the last 5 weeks at 4cm and 75% effaced and delivered at 39 weeks. I've had another 2 pregnancies and the contractions start early. I spend the last half of my pregnancy with very consistent contractions 4-6min. For 20 weeks, lol. So fun. But yes, I learned to check my cervix or have DH check my cervix. Otherwise I'd be going in every day, which is ridiculous.
