Hi ladies, just had a question about contractions as this is my first pregnancy. I started having cramping all day Friday, then backpain and contractions that night. Went to the hospital and was contracting every 3-6 minutes. The contractions are VERY mild, but its the backpain and cramping that more uncomfortable. They gave me a shot to stop them and sent me home. I have continued to do the same thing and went to the doctor yesterday and they said my cervix was not dilating and to take a pill when I feel them. But since my cervix is not changing, I could still work and take the pill, but just cut back to 8 hr shifts instead of 12 hrs. They said I might just contract like this and not dilate. I'm just concerned and wanted to know if any of you had a similiar situation. All my labs/tests were negative, so I don't know why I am doing this?
I appreciate any advice! Thanks :-)
