so glad for this thread.
i'm currently 35 weeks and am on bedrest because my cranky uterus is effectively pushing my baby down. guess what i thought were bh were the real deal.
last week i went to the hospital for monitoring and got a bag of fluids and a shot of terbutaline, neither of which "stopped" things but likely slowed them down. this was thursday. in that time, i've gone from 80 to 90% effaced and baby has dropped - fundal height was at 36cm, now at 34, and i've lost my mucous plug. i'm around a fingertip dilated and my mw seems to think that the only reason my baby is still baking is because i have scar tissue on my cervix from some procedures done long ago.
since i've had all of this change in the 4 days between checks, i've been put on prometrium to try and soothe the cramping and contractions. what i would like to know is how long it takes to see any improvement from the progesterone?
and, realistically, what might i be looking at if i have myself a little 35-36 weeker?
