Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you're having contractions that you think might be a symptom of preterm labor, rest, drink fluids and avoid strenuous activity. This might halt false labor contractions. If you're in true preterm labor, however, your contractions will continue. Keep in mind that preterm contractions might be Braxton hicks contractions, which are common and don't necessarily mean that your cervix will begin to open.
