positive fetal fibronectin test at 33wk4days
Sat, 01-05-2013 - 8:16pm

So today I had to go to ob triage because I was having a lot of contractions at work like every few minutes for over 2 hours.  The felt different from any of the BH contractions I had been having and along with it just felt like a dull ache in lower abd like it does the day I am going to start my period.  I went in and they hooked me up, baby heartbeat was good and he was moving around a lot, but they confirmed that I was having contractions every few minutes.  My fetal fibronectin test they did came back positive.  I did have small amount of blood when she checked me.  They ended up giving me a shot of terbutaline which after I only had one contraction in an hour but now I am on strict bedrest until I see my doctor on Tuesday.

Oh not fun to go through. Hopefully bedrest will do the trick and LO will stay in there and bake a little longer.
