Went to labor and delivary 4 times last week

Well after my appointment on Monday I had started having contractions about 6. They got really regular at about 9 and continued, so at midnight I called the doctor and he told me to go to the hospital. They checked me and I had changed from fingertip dialation to 1-2 cm. They gave me a shot to stop the contractions since I was only 35 weeks. It helped and I went home about 5. Then they started back and I went to the dr office and they sent me back to the hospital and this time I was dilated 2-3, but then my contractions slowed down on their own. So then Wednesday night they started again and I was back at the hospital, and dialated to 3. They gave me another shot and it stopped them for a while, but then they came back. My cervix had stopped dialating so they sent me home the next morning. Then I was back again with horrible contractions the next night but my cervix had not dialated anymore, so they sent me home. I am still having contractions, though now they are not as regular.

I had another appt. today and the dr. said I am now pass the premature mark so I don't have to come in to have them stop contractions anymore. She said to now stay very active and so hopefully I will have Alex before my due date.

Also my mucous plug came out, so hopefully it starts soon.
