I am 32 weeks pregnant and I went to the L&D ER because I was contracting every three minutes. I have a complete previa and, via ultrasound, just found out the baby is breech. I recieved two shots of Terbutaline and took my own oral Terbutaline to stop the contractions. The contractions did slow down alot but I still felt them and they sent me home. Is this normal practice? They also gave me two Percocet prior to leaving and I drove myself to the ER. Isn’t driving myself home after taking Percocet dangerous?
