Okay girls! The more I think about this, the more nervous I get. I'm 30 weeks and 3 days to be exact. My EDD is January 5th. I went to the doctor on Friday, complaining of a sharp pain, I only noticed it on the left side, lower abdomen. He hooked me up, no contractions (didn't feel the pain while being monitored) and did a vaginal u/s with exam. Cervix was closed and fine. Went back to the doctor today because the pain just wasn't going away. He did another exam and I've dilated to 1cm in 2 days, and the doctor is now stating, it had to have been contractions. This is my first pregnancy, and he said it was unusual, if it were my 2nd or 3rd, 1cm at 30 weeks could be considered normal. SO, I've been taken off work (was working 40 plus a week), and am on moderate bed rest. I'm just nervous/worried about LO coming too early. If I dilated that quickly in 2 days, I'm afraid to see what happens next. Also, as a side note, BP is textbook perfect, normal swelling, nothing up to this point that points to pre-term labor. Anyone else experienced this and been ok? Just hoping for reassurance!!
