If your having preterm labor you need to be on bed rest. I had it at 30 weeks and i am on bed rest. Im now 34 weeks.

No butthey had me on iv to stop my contractions

if the baby isn't engaged and you aren't dilated I would likely assume they ate braxton hicks contractions; just your body's way of preparing for birth.
