About a month ago I was having contractions every 3-4 minutes, I was told to go to L&D. They gave me a shot of terbutaline. After reading the side effects I made it clear I didn't want it again, the contractions subdued and weren't regular anymore but still noticeable. I'm in the hospital right now with contractions every 2-3 minutes, no change in cervix (scheduled c section October 17th) I was induced with my first for 3 days and only got to 3cm so I don't see much happening with a cervix. They've given me two 10mg doses of procardia since I've been here with no change, the next step they want to do a magnesium. Why not just give it shot to help baby's lungs and take him? One of my Dr's told me they'd take him at 35 weeks but now that's not the case, I don't really want a take anymore meds to stop labor because of the side effects.
