After the week of gestation at the time of monitoring had been controlled for, women who delivered their infants before 35 weeks of gestation had extra contractions, as measured each through the daytime (P=0.09 for twenty-four weeks zero days to 28 weeks 6 days and P=zero.03 for twenty-four weeks zero days to 32 weeks 6 days) and throughout the nighttime (P

In univariate analyses, the maximal frequency of contractions was inconsistently associated to spontaneous delivery earlier than 35 weeks of gestation ( Table 1 ). Because the logistic-regression models for maximal morning and nighttime contraction frequency had barely higher fit than that for imply contraction frequency, the maximal frequency … Read More
