I am currently 34 weeks and went in to get checked because of upper abdominal cramps on Friday last. I was having tightening and they tested me for Fibronectin, an enzyme the baby secretes in the week before the onset of labour. Its a new test apparently but they say there is a chance I could go into labour in the next 10 days. I am now living with MIL close to hospital as we live 60 miles from hospital on docs advice. Has anybody else had a positive test? I think its new and info is basic. Fascinating though and really useful test as if it's negative there is a high degree of certainly that labour is not forthcoming but if it's positive who knows....
