You need to seek medical assistance immediately.  Your life and your child's are both in jeopardy.

 

It seems very odd that you are a new member with this post, but if you are truly in the situation as you described, good luck and please do get to a medical professional right away.

At 32w, I'd be hoping that labor *didn't* start, honestly. Your bag of waters can reseal, so just keep absolutely everything out of your vagina (*no* cervical checks!), load yourself up on vitamin C (and presumably they already have you on antibiotics, in which case load up on probiotics too), and stay in bed. Any chance they'll send you home on bedrest? That's what I'd be aiming for, myself. Every day, every week your baby stays in makes it more likely that his/her lungs, heart, gut, latch, will be more prepared for life on the outside. Are they giving you steroids?

So: personally, I'd try to get out of hospital ASAP, stay horizontal as much as humanly possible, and try to avoid getting labor started. Hang in there! I know how emotionally exhausting this can be.

There is a ton of important development that happens in those last few weeks in the womb.  32 weeks is seriously premature, not something you should be hoping for.   http://www.marchofdimes.com/baby/premature_indepth.html

 

As stressful as it has to be, to be stuck in the hospital trying to keep the baby in, he or she has a much better chance of long-term health with every week in a healthy womb environment rather than in the NICU.  In certain situations, the NICU may be the better choice, but if your body is doing it's job and you don't have health issues, baby is better off inside for a few more weeks.

Whoops, sorry...I responded too quickly and obviously hadn't caught that she was in the hospital.

 

Casey, good luck to both you and your baby.  I am glad you are getting care and hope that you are well today.

I had a 32 weeker.  He spent 6 weeks in the NICU.  Trust me when I tell you that you DON'T want the baby to come now, even if you are uncomfortable.  Being away from family is nothing compared to leaving the hospital without your baby and having to sign in and wear a visitor's badge to see your own child day after day, week after week.

 

Please take bedrest seriously and follow your care providers' instructions, for your baby's best interests.
