My daughter's babysitter is now in the hospital for the second time with preterm labor. She's 23 weeks. The neonatalogist said that the ultrasound showed a high level of amneotic (sp) fluid & that is causing contractions. She also had a bleeding episode last week. This time she got the high doses of magnesium, steriods and antibiotics. Poor thing. Anyone know about this type of situation?
You could refer her to sidelines.org. They provide support either online or via phone for moms with high risk pgs--especially thoseon bedrest. It helped immensely when I was pregnant with my son--so much so that I am a volunteer now. (Well, they "retire" ya when you're pg, but after I deliver, I can start up again.)
