ok so im 35 weeks went into preterm labor new years day, was in hospital over that weekend and ever since been having Bh's and what not and from what im reading it seems as if im having back labor.. mind u she checked me THEN and i was 3 CM's and 70% effaced.. and she was low so my question is how long can a baby stay in that position (in the canal im guessing) b4 i go into labor labor?

With my first one i was dilated to 3cm for over a month and thinned out some...so you never know how long you can stay that way....

It can be a long time. When do you get checked next? Drink lots of water and keep your feet up as much as possible. You don't want to really have baby this early. They may consider giving you a shot to stop labor if its true early labor instead of just BHC. If you don't have an appt coming up, make one. Best of luck
