Hi everyone - I am 29 weeks along with b/g twins and was in the hospital this past weekend due to some bleeding. When I went in for monitoring I was surprised to find out I was having contractions 3-6 minutes apart. I didn't even feel them!! I stayed in 2 nights and they gave me medicine for contractions and steroids for the babies lungs. My real questions are:
1) have people had any luck still making it a good ways along if they had early issues?
2) my doctor is talking about doing a fetal fibronectin test to see how my chances are of having these babies in the next couple of weeks (of course I don't see him for well over another week though!) Any one have experience with this test - does it seem to be a good guideline?
Anyway - thanks for listening - I am terrified of having these babies too early - am on limited bed rest. Just want healthy babies!!
Thanks so much for any info and insight - it is really appreciated!!
