In brief: To Labor &Delivery

Most of the time preterm contractions go away, but we also want to be safe and stop preterm labor early.
Sometimes contractions will go away with rest and good hydration. If not, then head on up to your hospital to be evaluated. Sometimes contractions are just annoying and sometimes they cause cervical change. The only way to know the difference for sure is to be evaluated at your labor & delivery.
