i had a regular appointment with the OB and she hooked me to the non-stress test machine which showed i was contracting, according to her regularly. She send me down to labor room and they hooked me another machine with a IV. There were still contractions 11 minutes apart. She said i might be dehydrated because of Gestational diabetes... anyway she send me home. I was feeling pain but not extreme...just random back pain. Isn't it too early to be contracting? They checked my cervix and said its soft not open and baby's head is still not dropped..how can then i have regular contractions?!

Alot of women contract early and often... for about 5 weeks before my secons was born I would be off and on for hours than stop for days than back to more contractions. it isnt a bad thing at all... Good Luck with the last few weeks!
