Soft cervix contractions 32 weeks pregnent.


    My wife had been having period like cramps with no kicks(she's 32 weeks pregnant) for a good day and half or so. So today she was taken to ER, the doc checked hooked her up to a monitor which checks the baby and uterus contractions. we found out that the baby was doing fine,however she was contracting once every 6 minutes so that's 10 times an hour. She did check the Cervix [in a period of 1 1/2 - 2 hrs]and found that although not dilated it was pretty soft or at least soft. She then confirmed it was her new normal and wanted her to rush to ER in case the contractions are intense or are more than 10 etc. She was later sent home.

That being said we are freaking out. Is this normal, we are scared and want to avoid preterm labor at any cost.

Thanks in Advance

Drink alot of water and just have proper bed rest stay off the feet that can be the only thing done at home to keep u at peace of no fear of preterm baby. Rest keepnur fingers crossed. And if the contractions become unbearable and in case ur water breaks rush to the hospital.

And don't worry about preterm labor. 32-33 weeks preemies do really well and have a good chance of survival without any long term complications. All the best
