So a few weeks ago I was having contrax and was 50
effaced at 33 weeks (my older DD was born at 36 weeks.) I was told then to
take it really easy until 36 weeks. I'm now 35 weeks and some days and
have been having contrax on and off for a few hours. Not painful but
uncomfortable, and maybe every 7-8 min for the past hour or so.
So, my question is at 35 weeks I'm pretty sure they won't consider
stopping labor or doing steroids so there's probably no reason to call
the after hour line unless it seems like it turns into active labor,
right? Am I missing a reason to call?
FWIW I have every desire to keep baby cooking for at least a few
more weeks but I'd rather not go into L&D if they wouldn't do anything
right now anyway.
Last time they just hooked me up to monitors for two hours and then told me to go home and get some rest.
Water and lie down, right?
