I will hope you two hold off for a month or so... that would be nice, no? I know it can be done, I just hope it can be your story too.

Oh mama, I'll keep you and the little one in my thoughts and prayers. I'm also going to send some stay put vibes to you. If that little one can hold out for another month or so that might help a bit. Good Luck to you!!!

khourtney,
hang in there. I've been there, and I know exactly what you're going through. the longer you can keep baby in the better. Another shot of steroids would be good. Resolve to stay pregnant. Visualize the baby hanging in there with you. I know some moms have made it a month or more with water broken.

Find something to focus on. a knitting project, a good book, something to get your mind off every little bump inside you. (that's how I felt).

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Get hooked into the Nicu area.

I'm sorry. I've had two preemies, and I'm on a mission to full term delivery. But I do know that if I go early, it will be ok. The baby will be ok and so will I, and so will you.

oh, you're the one with the preemie site, I forgot that you have been through this before. Well, love to you anyways. I guess you already know you can come through this.
Stay strong. Cry if you need to (and then drink lots of water to replace the tears.)

Thanks ladies! Another update

Going by OB Ill be 26 weeks tomorrow but that is based off of scan.

By conception I will be 26 weeks on Thursday and I believe theneonatologist is going to go by that.

Either today or tomorrow I will have a baby though

Things are still fine right now. Cervix is thin and Im sure a lot more since last time they checked.

I get next steroids at 12. They are trying to hold off until at least midnight. Its 10.30 now

i have my laptop so I should be able to keep you guys updated but it will probably take a bit to update if the baby cmes.

They are pushing to section me and Im refusing.


Im in the same room I had Alo in... talk about memories.... And the nurse that took care of Alo in the NICU (and found his spina bifida) is working today and tomorrow and has requested to take care of this baby too

******

Just had the scan There is no fluid around the baby but the baby is no longer breech!!!! Baby turned sometime today. Im so glad. No section will be needed.

After 48 hours of the steroids they are stopping all meds and letting me deliver.

Baby is measuring 1# 13oz

That's great news. I hope the birth goes beautifully and that your little one gets all the care he needs.
