I just hit 24 weeks but all last week I had contractions, and just a few nights ago I had regular contractions for about an hour and a half. They didnt get painful, but they were uncomfortable. I tried to lay down and eventually fell asleep. They obviously quit but ive still had a few since then. Im calling my doc tomorrow but I just wonder if it happened to anyone else out there. Should I expect him soon??
I experienced the same thing...my contractions went for 2hours...i went to the hospital and they said i was in preterm labour and could have bub anytime...i had also dilated 1.4cm. They gave me 2 injections of steriods to mature the baby lungs incase i was to go into labour. i was 30weeks pregnant at the time. The docs just said to take it easy and rest heaps.
