Re: fibronectin positive cervix thin

I was treated with 17P shots (but they start those much ealier in pregnancy) and Terbutaline (which is no longer used in pregnancy). I had my last appointment with the Perinatologist at 34 weeks and that last fetal fibronectin test came back negative. I went into full on labor at 36 weeks exactly and my daughter was born at that time.
I didn't know Terb. was not used anymore.. I had it 3 years ago with my DS and 5 years ago with my DD.... Having contractions again but dr. doesn't wanna do anything yet (my last two made it to 37weeks) since I"m not dialating with regular contractions...
