I posted a little more of the story in the Twin Mamas thread, but am hoping for all the thoughts and prayers we can get right now.

 

I am continuing to have episodes of preterm labor (and the medicine I take to stop this is only helping some) and my cervix has shortened to 0.9 cm.  Last night and the night before, I was given steroid injections to speed up the development of the babies lungs.  My OB says he is genuinely concerned that I might deliver in the next couple weeks, and I am so scared for my babies!  I'm only 28 weeks, 4 days right now and feel so completely unprepared for this. 

 

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers- that my body can continue to hold on!  Thanks, mamas!

You can count on my prayers as well!  I hope those babies will stay nicely tucked away until they're good and ready.

You reminded me of my very first DDC - on a different site - back when I was expecting my first.  We had a DDC member deliver her baby at something like 24 or 25 weeks.  It was *so* early, and all of us worried so much.  Happily, baby ended up absolutely great... but I know the NICU stay is a nightmare for new mommies!  I will pray with all my heart that you get to avoid that.
