His lung were completely filled with fluid. Since we were at a birth center the docs didn't really know what happened, but they saw blood as well as mucus and amniotic fluid. He was there for a week :(  I have to say, though that I would take a week over the several weeks that the preemies had to be there! Thanks for your prayers
I think everyone's trauma is her own- none easier or harder. The trouble with trauma is that, unlike physical pain, it is remembered and dwelled upon.   I had my baby boy in a birth center this past August. The labor and delivery went well, and I was handed my new crying baby. Within a couple of minutes he had a hard time breathing and wasn't gaining his color. Meanwhile I was bleeding profusely and passing out, and also needed oxygen. Kevin was too heavy on my chest...
I'm not over due yet- dd is 8-8. I have pre-e and if I don't have the baby on my own soon I will have to be induced. I really want to stick with my original birth plan which is to deliver naturally in our birth center. My midwife told me that if I don't have the baby by next tues she would have me try castor oil. I'm only 1-2 cm dilated and baby is still high which I've heard can make it not work? Has anyone done this? I've heard mixed results...
That makes me think about how my insurance will only pay for like $35 towards a child birth class. Don't they realize how much money they would save if all moms were properly educated about their pregnancy and birth?

So am borderline pre eclampsia- lots of swelling, high bp, and not so great blood test. My midwife is pretty nervous about me and seems to have it in her mind that I will have to be induced. I feel great and nothing is getting worse that I know of- with a healthier diet and lots of rest my swelling is going way down. I lost my mucus plus today and have been having lots of uncomfortable prelabor...any suggestions to pick it up a bit? Thanks!
