Hello Meso,
Well ,no one can deny the possibility of a premature birth. But i think you should take adequate rest and anxiolytics, have a ultrasonography done to know the fetal well being,and the placental status.You should also take prophylactic steroids for fetal maturity at this stage.
Well as far as uterine contractions are cornered. you may ask your doc to modify the dosage of nifedipine. You can switch over to other uterine rexants for the same poupose. good luck bye.
