A place where mom to be can come and relax. Take a break from the day to day stress with friends and vent, even ask those questions we need answers to. Come on in let's share our pregnant stories and announce the birth out our little miricals!
I'm at l&d due to tummy pains again... I'm dilated 2 cm and contractions.are 9 min apart. They are keeping me in giving me meds to stop labor.. got steroids for their lungs. Dr said if labor stops I will be here until I deliver and on strickt bed rest...
My boys are doing well. Heartbeats and everything are strong. Please send a prayer or 2... I'm scared I'm actually in labor... 30 weeks is too soon...
Everything will be fine im sure of it when I went to labor and delivery early they made sure that they baby wasnt coming early and they will do the same thing for u also...sending love and prayers to u andyour boys keep us updated
Sending prayers and positive energy. I'm sure they'll be able to get them to stop. Its a good sign that your water hasn't broken. They are both just so excited to see their nursery that momma worked so hard to get ready for them :)
Thank you ladies. They did manage to get them stopped for now. But they are keeping me on them iv and in here for a few days to see how things go. My water hasn't broken but they want me on strickt bed rest until 35-36 weeks. I've been given steroids for their lil lungs. Got this is so.scary .. but everything will be OK at this point right? They won't give me a straight answer! I'm still dilated at a 2 so that's a good thing I guess since it didn't get worse. Anyone have a cork and superglue I can borrow? Lol
So glad to hear contractions are stopping. I have a feeling you're gonna have two fiesty little boys with how they are already giving you a hard time :) Hopefully the nurses will give you some peace and you can get some sleep.
Its good the you got the lungs steroids coz you know that the babies lung will be developed and will be fine. Its just gaining a bit more weight now otherwise all is in place and babies are just fine. Just rest rest rest.
Oh Emma!! How scary. Ill be praying for you. I'm so glad to hear your contractions are slowing way down. At this point, even though your boys would have a long haul, they should be fine. Just take it week by week at this point. At this stage a lot happens with their development in a week and there are so many resources available to babies born this early. You guys will be fine. I believe someone upstairs must have some pretty big and special plans for you. You're a strong woman!!
Everything is OK for now. They are keeping me until I deliver.But Dr was talking about pulling the babes at 35 weeks or so depending how I'm holding up. They have me on them anti contraction meds now again
They took me off for a little bit and sure enough they started again. I'm not quite 3 cm. Dilated and about 70% effaced. This is going to be a very long stay ladies... oh and I'm on a horrible diet since I failed the glucose test... don't have diabetes but I am hypoglycemic....
I was. Just didn't think this soon. Thank god for medication haha.
Nurses are pretty nice. Kinda slow when you ask for something. Took me over an hour for water refill...of well. Least they don't work for tips haha. Sorry I'm bored right now.
Praying you and your little ones are ok. Hoping you find some entertainment to keep you occupied for your stay. It sounds like everything has calmed down so that's great! Hope you have a great day!. Soon you will have the company of little angels <3
You ladies are awesome you know that?
I'm sorry I've been away for a bit
Been catching up on sleep when I can. I'm well rested now :-)
Contractions have stopped but dilated to 3 cm so I'm stuck here until d day. Everything is going great other than that. the staff here is amazing with allowing my son to come and visit me everyday. We get to have our dinner together and part of his homework. Babies are rolling now. No more hard kicks.
Happy to hear things are on the mellow side :) Yep Flickan its something you can expect. As baby gets bigger they run out of room so they can really kick anymore so they just roll and push mostly. Mine loves to stretch out and it'll feel like she's gonna push right threw my skin when she does it.
I'm still getting the kicks. She is breech so she is trying to use my bladder for a soccer ball....when she doesn't aim straight down...good to know. I will be excited to not have those random hits. Rolling sounds like less pain.
I've been away for a while, just thought I would check to see if you were still in the hospital and if you had the babies yet. I have a long way to go, at about 7 weeks now. Having nausea constantly. but so worth it. well i hope you have a great day !
