Contractions: you sound like you are in labor. Please go to Labor and Delivery for evaluation. They will notify your doctor. Do not delay as 35 week infants may have some problems breathing at least at first. Congrats on your baby, hopefully it is a false alarm. ...Read more

One : One thing that is positive is that even though you have not been aware of fetal movement for the last two days that your baby has a heartbeat and is alive. Normal fetal heart rate is 120 to 160 beats per minute. Fetal bradycardia is less than 120 beats per minute for 10 minutes or longer. Fetal tachycardia is a heart rate of that is faster than 160 beats per minute for 10 minutes or more. Early decelerations occur when the fetal heart rate is below baseline and return to the baseline by the end of the contraction. It is a normal response. In late decelerations, the fetal heart rate drops well after the contraction starts begins and return to baseline after the contraction ends. There are also variable decelerations. They will normally study the the decelerations to determine if they are normal. If the decelerations are abnormal, they would then take whatever medical actions were appropriate. Did they diagnose you with braxton hicks contractions? If so, make sure you are hydrating well. You may need to lie on your left side when you have the contractions. Try not to let your bladder become full. ...Read more

Labor pains usually become more frequent and stronger with time. You are considered in labor only when the pains cause your cervix to become thinner and the cervix starts dilating. Call your Doctor if yor have vaginal bleeding, or your condition worsens. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant & i just don't feel pregnant. Was having contractions all morning, but they were small& now i can run & feel lighter. Over 1 CM dialtd?

Lucky you!: Maybe the position of the baby has changed to make you more comfortable. As long as you are feeling good movement from your baby, all is probably well. It is common to have occasional contractions that come and go as you get further along in your pregnancy. If you have painful, regular contraction more than 6 in an hour or your water breaks, call your doctor or midwife. ...Read more
