Depends

Contraction
it is normal if u are in early labor, once you are in active labor it may mean the baby is too large for you and it is not putting pressure on the cervix to help dilate it, nature does not always work right BUT U SHOULD BE DISCUSSING THIS WITH YOUR OB u may need a -C-section which is better than forcing something that is not going to happen

Dr. Pam Yoder answered:

What happens if I start having contractions but I am not dilating?

Cervix effaces/thins

Cervix
The cervix is normally thick through most of pregnancy, and usually many uterine contractions and physiologic changes are required to thin it (especially prior to the first delivery). It is important, however, for women to record contractions and keep their OBs informed because an examination of the cervix by a trained provider can best determine extent of dilatation of the cervix/onset of labor.

Been having period type cramps for 3wks=3cm/80%effaced. now starting again @36wks. can cramps alone be dilating me?no contractions tho. When go l&d?

ASK YOUR OB NOW !!!!

Contraction
Your OB should be on call 24/7 or have someone covering for him or her like I DO !! I usually take my own call and if one of my patients was having that problem I would expect them to call me ASAP and if there is any question I send them to L&D immediately , if you and the baby are Ok you really do not want to deliver at 36 weeks SO CALL YOUR OB NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 37 weeks pregnant and I have been having contractions for 2 days. My cervix is soft and thin how long before dilating? baby is lower than usual !

No way to know

Contraction
Only when your cervix begins to dilate (open) can labor be ascertained. Your cervix can stay thinned out for days.

Whats fiorinal with codeine like?

Fiorinol without Cod

The codeine probably doesn't add a lot to the effectiveness. This med is responsible for a lot of Rebound or Transformed Migraine development.

does fiorinal with codeine make you high?

Taking for pain?

Medication
All pain medications can make some people feel "high". If you taking this for pain then it is less likely. If you are taking it to get high, then you are risking your life.

Dr. TORY MCJUNKIN answered:

Can fiorinal with codeine #3 cause itching?

Narcotic itch

Itching
Great question. Any narcotic (or opioid medication) can cause the side effect of itching. If the itching is severe, you may have to change to a different medication. Many other things can cause itching too. If you continue to have itching after stopping the medication, then you have to rule out other potential offending agents.
