33 week appointment...and another impatient baby

So, I had my 33 week appointment today. Unfortunately my midwife was called out on 2 deliveries so they had to fit me in with a nurse practitioner. I had talked to my midwife about doing my GBS early so the NP decided to do that today in her place, which I wanted cause I was contracting all morning so I wanted to make sure things were 'okay'. She did the swab and checked me, 2cm and 80% effaced. She wanted to hook me up to the NST but I just wanted to get home, she said she'll have my midwife call me when she gets back to the office. I just knew I'd have a much better chance of getting things stopped at home than stressed out in a busy office. They are still every 4-5 minutes apart but aren't getting any stronger so I'm laying down with my laptop and knitting and hopefully they'll stop. I'm still really hoping to reach my 36 week goal!

Oh goodness! Hope those contractions stop ASAP! Relax and put your feet up, and keep that baby baking, mama!

Wowie... I hope you get them under control. Doesn't sound fun to have to endure with your other kids in need of mommy. :bigarmhug:

Did your other children come earlier, too?

I hope you can get lots of rest and those contractions stop!!!

Thanks everyone Smile They're still the same for now, so we might end up going in, I figure I'll give it another hour. Yes, my others came early too, but not this early. DD1 was 34 weeks 5 days, DD2 was 35 weeks and DS was 36 weeks 4 days. So we'll see, my midwife called me back and said they don't stop labor at this point? I'm really, really hoping that if I do go in they'll do *something* to stop it, my bag is not packed yet or anything

That's crazy! Does she have you confused with someone else who is farther along? :confused:

Our hospital will try to stop it anytime before 35 weeks.

At 33 wks I would beg for them to stop the ctx, that is just way too early~!
I hope things settle down and you dont have to go in, but if not you may have to get pushy!!!! GL!!!

Things have calmed down, they are down to every 8 minutes, which is better than before so I think they'll go away. I really don't think she confused me with someone else which is why I found it so weird. I'd definitely push for something if I ended up needing to go in. Luckily dh is off today so he's been letting me lay around on the couch and I'm almost done knitting the baby's blanket! Lol
