I had to be given medications to stop labor with my first child starting at 24 weeks. I was given trabutaline IV in the hospital, and then I was given the tablet that I had to take every 4 hours until I hit 36 weeks. The week that the doctors took me off the medication I had her. I was dilated 3 cm and 80 % effaced at 32 weeks and made it another 4. She was born healthy at 7.7 lbs =)
