Has anyone had the fetal fibronectin test done? My doc decided to do it today because I am only 30 weeks and I have been having contractions off and on for the last month or so. The test is supposed to help him determine whether or not I will go into preterm labor. If it comes back negative then chances of labor before 35wks is less than 1% but if it comes back positive then there is not definitive way to determine if I will go into labor early. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this done and what your results were and how far you were when you had your baby. I guess I just need to ease my mind until I get the results back tomorrow.
Quoting MommyOf3&AnAngel♥:" Yea it can. They usually ask if you've had sex in the last 48hrs. Well they asked me when I had mine done."
Same here... I had one when I was having pressure at 23 weeks, they found a dimple in my cervix.. but I was still pretty much closed... and I had sex, but no semen up there... mine came back neg... so far it's been right.
Thanks ladies I am hoping for a negative so it will ease my mind a little bit. I have done some research and I found that a positive doesn't really mean much and a negative is much more helpful. I guess I will find out in just a few hours.
