hey ladies, wondering if anyone else has gone through this.. I am 35 weeks and went to the hospital last week due to timetable Braxton hicks contractions. They hooked me up to a monitor and gave me fluids, they did soke
swabs and said that I had a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis for which I never had symptoms of either. They wanted to give me a shot to stop the contractions but I declined due to side effects and they put me on monistat 7 day and an antibiotic. The contractions stopped the next day, 2 days later I started having pink spotting when I wipe and on my panty liner, along with increased Braxton hicks.. I've now had the spotting for 4 days straight mixed with discharge and increased contractions which harden my belly and also feel like period cramps. The doctor seems to think it's no big deal and that it's likely due to the infection, they said that it can cause cervical irritation and should stop within 7-10 days of treatment. I am super scared that I am going into preterm labor with this baby and they seem to feel like it's normal. They said to call back early next week if I still have the spotting and they can check me for dilation. I'm having terrible anxiety about this.. this is my 2nd child but with the first child my water broke and I didn't have early labor contractions so I don't know what early labor feels like.. only pitocin contractions. Anyone else experience this? If so.. was it normal or did you go into labor?
