I think honestly most of the drugs used to try to stop PTL are not fully tested in terms of really long term effects. Procardia is supposed to be one of the better meds for stopping contractions and fewer side effects than some others. You may find more information on the preemie/NICU forum, the mamas over there are awesome and supportive. If I may ask, are you just contracting or were you having cervical change? You might want to find out about a fetal fibronectin test. It could just be irritable uterus and not true PTL, in which case, the medications might not be needed.
I'm a mom of a 33 weeker, btw, now 3 years old. Just so you know I'm not some random DDC crasher!
I'm not actually having changes to my cervix, just the rhythmic contractions.
I feel like it could just be an irritable uterus but the midwives say that because I did have a + fFN swab and 32 weeks is too soon to deliver, I should take the med to keep labor from starting.
