Early contractions
mamabof2 posted:
I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. My first pregnancy was text book. No problems at all delivered full term on his due date via C-Section. This pregnancy has been hard from the word go...Sicker than a dog through my whole1st trimester. It is a girl I started having a lot of back pain and tons of pressure up front on Sunday. Went to my doctor and they sent me to Labor and Delivery to be checked out. Turns out I was having full on contractions less that 2 minutes apart. They kept me over night gave me some muscle relaxers during my stay and pain meds while I was there. The doctor said that I was not in "active Labor" Because the contractions did not change my Cervix or Uterus and I am not Dilated. They sent me home. I went back 2 days later. They ran all the same tests and told me the same exact thing this time sending me home with Vicodin for the pain...I can feel the contractions start to come back as soon as the Vicodin begins to wear off and they are just as strong as before...I have changed Doctors and Birthing Hospitals. I have an Apt with my new Doctor but not until the 6th...I am wondering what I should do about this. Thank you for your input.
