Anxious about FFN result (29 weeks 3 days)

Last night, I got a phone call from my OB's office that the fetal fibronectin test came back negative (this test is supposed to determine whether preterm labor could occur in the next 2 weeks), but this morning, I got a call from the OB's office saying that it is actually positive and there was some miscommunication. Yesterday, my OB said I should definitely stop working at the end of week 31/beginning of week 32 which would be 2 weeks from this Friday. Before then, it would be up to me. However, that may change now b/c of the results of the FFN. The OB I talked to said that this doesn't necessarily mean preterm labor will occur. I'm still really anxious and I may have to stop working sooner - I'm hoping that my OB calls to let me know if she wants to change her opinion on when to stop working. I will stop working sooner if it would mean delaying labor - I really want to make it to 36 weeks.

    sorry for the disappointing news, but hopefully you'll continue to manage it well and keep those babes in for several more weeks at least!

    Wow, I had no idea they even had all those tests but I'm so glad to know since it's likely I'll need them, too. I have been wondering how long I'll be able to work; I'm pretty worried about it now with all of the swelling & back pain I've had. But, we've got to do what's best for the babies! And, I'm with you about getting them to at least 36 weeks.
    Wishing you the best :)

    No, stay put little ones! I really hope they stay inside a little longer. I'll be sending up some prayers that you make it to the 36 week mark.

    Let's hope the littles ones decide to stay put for just a bit longer. Keep us posted.

    Good luck Heather,

    I hope you're able to make it to 36weeks -- take care of yourself, I know this must be so nerve-wracking!!
