The nurse is discharging a client who has been hospitalized for preterm labor. The client needs further instruction when she says:
1. “If I think I have a bladder infection, I need to see my obstetrician.”
2. “If I have contractions, I should contact my health care provider.”
3. “Drinking water may help prevent early labor for me.”
4. “If I travel on long trips, I need to get out of the car every 4 hours.”
Traveling is usually discouraged if preterm labor has been a problem as it restricts normal movement. A client should be able to walk around frequently to prevent blood clots and to empty her bladder at least every 1 to 2 hours. Bladder infections often stimulate preterm labor and to prevent them is of great importance to this client. Contractions that recur indicate the return of preterm labor and the health care provider needs to be notified. Dehydration is known to stimulate preterm labor and encouraging the client to drink adequate amounts of water helps to prevent this problem.
