Call the Dr: Although you may be having false contractions it is very important that you keep a line of communication open with your ob. With a prior premi in your history, you are at increased risk of another & all the ob's i work with want to know sooner rather than later when these sort of issues come up. Make the call & find out what indicators they would suggest before u have these events monitored @ l& d.
