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.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away!
