Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Re: Irritable uterus

I think that's why I'm nervous, especially when I went into true labour with my 30 weeker, the monitor wasn't picking up the contractions at all and I had to demand for three hours that I was in fact in labour... Hoping that doesn't happen again

I was diagnosed with irritable uterus at 21 weeks.  The US tech saw contractions as early as 14 weeks, and by the end of my pregnancy, I was getting them frequently throughout the day, although always irregular.  We ended up delivering at 34 weeks when my waters broke.  True contractions kicked in immediately afterwards and were 2 minutes apart.
Currently 20+5 and bub is so low!
All ultrasounds have shown bub curled up at my hip behind their placenta, apparently it's their face place and they are a tummy sleeper but omg the kicks. Feels like they kicking through my bum or vagina! How do you ladies deal with that part of pregnancy lol. My other three kids weren't this low until birth
I have shared the post hoping to raise some more money for you :)
I'm currently 20+5 so getting nervous but ultrasound showed cervix at 3.6 cm. I didn't get contractions with my first but this time around I have irritable uterus
I am sorry to hear that! How many weeks are you know? Did you have contractions? I haven't had any contractions whatsoever so far. The only thing is this round ligament pain I get in the evening, especially if I don't take it easy enough during the day.
I wish you all the best in these difficult moments. These things are so stressful!
I wish I had all the answers and a similar story but all I can offer is an ear if you need to talk :) I hope all goes well and you get to 34 weeks. I had the opposite issue where nurses and even ultrasound showed normal cervix at 29 weeks with my last bub but within a week I was 3 cm dialated and shortened cervix after pprom.
Hi everyone,
This forum is really helpful, thank you for sharing your stories. Mine seems to be a bit peculiar, or so I wonder, that is why I am writing today.
I had my first baby 4 years ago. It was a super-easy pregnancy, and I was induced at 40 weeks because my membranes broke without me going into labour spontaneously. I had a forceps delivery. I am now pregnant with my second baby girl. I am from London but I was living in the US for a few months for work reasons. At 20 weeks at the anatomy scan, the sonography also checked my cervix and I was told that I had a funnelling cervix. It was long 4.7cm but after pressure it went down to 2cm. Since then I have had regular checks every week or so and my cervix was stable at around 2cm for 6 weeks. Two weeks ago (when I was 26 weeks) it went down to 1.1cm and two days ago at 28 weeks they found it at 0.9cm. I have been on progesterone suppositories since 20 weeks and I am mostly on bed-rest (though I cook quick meals and I am using a wheelchair sometimes to go out if I really have to).
The doctors keep saying that my case is unusual because I don't have a history of miscarriages and preterm birth and my first pregnancy went just fine. They say this is reassuring, and that there is even the possibility that my body was exactly the same on my first pregnancy but no-one checked my cervix. Also, in the UK they don't check the cervix of women who haven't had a history of preterm etc., so it is also possible that mine is a false positive simply because I was in the US where they now check all women indiscriminately.
I wonder if there is anyone out there with a story similar to mine? I still haven't met anyone who is encountering this problem at their second pregnancy without a previous similar history.
My goal now is to arrive at 34 weeks, though I am feeling it will be hard with a cervix which is just a bit less than 1cm.
Thanks for sharing your stories!

We are currently going through it at the moment. My son was born 22-10-2016 at 30+5 due to pprom and 18 months later I found out I was pregnant
