    I'm very glad to be only 20 mins from a tertiary level hospital - I couldn't imagine being in the position to be airlifted somewhere else!

    I am(was) mostly a desk jockey for work, but I think stress was a much bigger factor than I realised at the time. I was already under close supervision, with a cervical suture and fortnightly scans before being diagnosed, so stopping work was really a no brainer.

    Triggers: stress, dehydration, full bladder, standing, most physical activity.

    Incidentally, I saw the hospital obstetric physio on Monday, and she also advised that pressure on the uterus/belly is a known trigger, so abdominal support wraps/socks are not recommended. She also said to be very wary of engaging your core muscles to go from sitting > standing and also when getting in and out of bed. On top of that, no pelvic floor exercises! I wasn't doing them anyway, because of the suture, but just in case any of you are!

    I found getting out of bed or going from sitting to standing agonising. Quick movements were triggers. Other triggers were stress, standing for long periods and having a full bladder.

    All I can say now is that I am glad it is over. I literally burst into tears of joy when baby was out, I was so relieved to not have the pressure and discomfort any longer. If I had had it with previous pregnancies there is no way in hell I would have got pregnant again. I was not going to bother with contraception for 12mths after having our third bub as we weren't bothered if we had a natural lucky conception and ended up with a 4th child but not now... Not taking a chance due to latest pregnancy.

    Sooo true girls!!

    Great advice hamsterhoney!

    So my dr is a little worried about my IU, only because I've got twins. He was going to admit me today, but decided to wait till Friday for another check. He thinks that they'll come before my sheduled caesar. Having steroid shots tomorrow and Friday. I'm 33 weeks on Sunday.

    Okay I'm in hospital. Bubs may be here in next few days. My cervix has gone from 2cm yesterday to open in 24hrs. Just resting as elective caesar may be this avo. Won't know till a few hours.

    Girls don't let this scare you. It's just because mine is a twin pregnancy and my body is even baffling my dr.. I'm not the norm. But I feel it within myself that they're coming too. Couldn't sleep lasr night due to contractions.

    Thanks little miss. Well Dr changed his mind and I'm now on nifedipine (stops contractions) fingers crossed it works and bubs cook for a little longer

    Good luck with the nifedipine! It halted my contractions for 6 days with DD. Hope you can keep baking a little longer.

    Have they given you the steroid injection to help bub's lungs?

    Good news about the nifedipine - every day you can keep them in is potentially less NICU time!

    Hi lovelies,

    Pleased to announce my boy girl twins were born last week via emergency c section at 33+5 when I finally went into active labor.

    They are very healthy strong bubs 2kg 46cm and 2.2kg 47cm. They're currently in the "fat farm" in the hospital and hopefully will take them home in a few weeks. I'm soooooooooooooo in love it's not funny!!!

    GM... it halted my contractions for 6 days too!
