Today I m 32+1 at 31+6 I went into pre term labor. I received steroid shots 24 hours apart from each other to mature the lungs. Also.I was put on a magnesium drip for 12 hours. It only slowed my contractions. Then they put me on indisen(spelling?) Which I get every 6 hours.it stopped my contractions from 930pm last night to 245pm this evening I'm terrified!
My daughter was born at 27.3 weeks 3.9lbs..she was amazingly healthy with strong lungs (8/9on apgar) i believe because the steroids.my son was born at 33.1 weeks..again same apgar 6.6 lbs..i know its scary but know you are in the right place and sounds like you being taken care of..good thoughts heading your way
