I have been having contractions off and on for 2 days, I am 18 weeks along. The doctor said to rest for 3 days. I am worried because with my first pregnancy I went into pre-term labor at 20 weeks. Luckily the doctors were able to stop the labor with medication and bedrest and I delivered my son at 36 weeks and 6 days. Should I be worried?

It is always a possibility but it could be Braxton-Hicks too. They can occur as early as 6 weeks and can feel petty strong. i had them from 23 weeks on with my first child. I was scared to death about them because of my previous miscarriages.
