I went to the hospital last night due to the baby not moving for two days and really bad stomach pain. At the hospital the lady in charge told me I had 5 contractions in and hour. I know that is not alot to keep a pregnant woman. I am only 29 weeks though. My mother said it was braxton hicks contrations but the doctor in charge at the hospital said they where actually contrations and not braxton hicks contrations. My mother said I should not have been released if that was the case. IS it normal to be released when having contractions? They did at least find the baby moving even though it was not as much as normal and her heart beat wasnt as strong as normal. I just dont kknow if what my mother said is true that im having braxton hicks contractions or actually contractions just not enough in the time period needed to keep.

Can you call your actual doctor and have her check you out for peace of mind?

I would think. I mean my mom is hure it is braxton hicks contractions but me and my fiance made sure before we left the hospital if it was actually contractions or braxton contractions and the doctor made it clear they where actually contractons im just not having enough to actually worry about them. But I am really not sure what to believe with that being the case. I know I didnt have enough to be that alarmed since it was only 5 contractions in an hour but at same time it is like should i be watching even closer and taking it easier then I normally do or is it ok to do the stuff I normally do.

i think if it keeps up they should give you something too stop the contractions. or monitor it closely.
