On Friday night we had quite a scare. I started having Braxton Hicks contractions randomly (which I have been having but very sporadically). Then noticed they were picking up frequency. By the time I was ready for bed I called the on-call doctor to tell them how frequent they were (at least 4 an hour). My doctor said that if I got another 2-3 within the next 30 minutes to come in to the hospital, where she was at on call. Not even 10 minutes later and I had had 3.
Hubbs and I rushed to the hospital (while I was guzzling water, my teeth were chattering due to nerves), got whisked up to labor and delivery where they strapped monitors on to my belly. The doctors did not like my pattern of contractions (in which I instantly started to ultra-freak out) and told me they would give me a shot to stop the contractions and then run a test to see if I was going into PRE TERM LABOR. I am at 27 weeks. They ran the test, my cervix was nice and closed and the test was negative. After monitoring me for at least another hour my contractions stopped. They have no idea why that happened. But it scared the CRAP out of me and hubbs. I continued getting Braxton Hicks contractions throughout the weekend, but nothing like Friday night. I am so paranoid now. I have called my doctor's office twice since then.
