I likely will. It was worse with DS1 and I ended up with preterm labor, tocolytics, steroid shots, a stent in antepartum and the complete bedrest at home until I delivered.
DS2 I also had it, but the bella bands helped a LOT with it. I did have a bought of regular contractions at about 32ish weeks, but since the on call line said there wasn't an OB on, I just monitored myself from home. (There was an OB on call and I could have gone to the hospital, but I wanted to monitor it myself for a bit then go in if necessary).
I've had previous surgery on my cervix and that increases my risks of preterm labor etc.
Sorry you had all those complications with DS1. How very scary
I guess if the contractions do start up early with this one I will try a belly band. My stomach is just so sensitive during pregnancy I can't stand for anything to touch it. Even now, this early, everything makes my skin crawl.
It is a good thing babies are so cute b/c they are a whole lotta work!
