Pills? No. Magnesium Sulfate intravenously, yes. Through labor. So I am no help. Sorry!

I am 18 weeks pregnant and been having non stop contractions this week... I do not have an infection and the baby is fine so far. The heartbeat is in the 160s. I am on metformin for gestational diabetes and thyroxine for hypothyroidism! They do not know why I am having them so they put me on slow mag (magnessium pills) twice a day! I had contractions on Sunday and Monday about 5 to 7 mins apart... and once I started the pills they stopped....

but my doctor did not tell me for how long so I stopped them last night to see if they would come back and this morning they are back! I took the pills and 6 hrs later they are still going!!! I am so confused and in pain ugh! Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Never magnesium, although I was on terbutaline with DD2 from 28 weeks until the Dr stopped it at 36-37 weeks. This time I will be starting progesterone on the 2nd for the same thing. I have contractions almost daily some days really bad with a lot of pain. Dr thinks the progesterone will calm my uterus down.
