Q:

Hi. I am 32 week 4 days pregnant and when I was in 31 week my contraction pain were started so my doctor start giving me weekly inj. maintenance.. and she said I need to continue this till my delivery... I would like to know why this is compulsory? and is it safe for normal delivery?



What has happened is that you have shown signs of preterm contractions. Which means that your hormones are acting ahead of time. To ensure that you carry thru till full term the injection is required. It is safe and used routinely for sustaining the pregnancy.

Sonali ji ,how do I know when my hormones will change for final delivery contractions a as I am 37 +4 weeks preg?
