I was admitted to hospital with contractions & a small amount of bleeding. They gave me a course of steroid injections & ran tests for 3 days. The test were ok so they sent me home but I am still having contractions! Doc said this was normal as long as they don't have a regular pattern. So will this mean I am more likely to deliver early?? The pains are strong enough but not painful...... just worried.

I had them from 32 weeks. At 36 weeks the hospital said they were so regular and so strong that I was in labour. I knew I wasn't in labour as they'd been this way since 32 weeks! I was induced at 40+4 ....
