I had preterm labor at 34 weeks- contractions 1 min. apart. They tried several shots of tributaline which didn't work and admitted me and did mag sulfate. I was in the hospital for 3 days and they finally got it stopped and sent me home on procardia and strict bed rest. I made it to 38 weeks before actually delivering but it was a long haul!
My SIL still has 5 weeks to go and is dialated to a 2 and is 50% effaced... So we sure hope it's ok!!! They don't seem toooo worried about it, as ALL of her kids have been born early like this for some odd reason? ???
I had mine stopped at 36 weeks exactly, had to be induced over a week past due after that. They say at 36 weeks on they usually don't stop it, my son was breech though and they had to turn him. Have a coworker who had hers at 32 weeks, she was on steroid injections and bed rest and a special high protein diet. Her son was a little over 4 lbs. He has grown really well last I saw.
I had my daughter at 36 weeks exactly by scheduled c-section due to some complications. However, I started having contractions a few days before. She was born 5lbs 13oz. Very small, but was very healthy, despite being 4 weeks early. Considering that "term" is 37 weeks, it should be fine.
my last dd was born 36 weeks to the day, 7.1 lbs and healthy as can be, they concidered her a premie, but she is well into the 97% percentile for her age, no problems from being born early, my water broke so i just think she was ready ;) oh my first was born at around 36 weeks too, i think a little closer to 37 weeks but still early she was 7.7 lbs, so some people just dont have pregnancies that last 40 weeks,
I am asking because i live in tifton and my DH wants me to go to baxley (where his mom lives) to have the baby. my due date is june 16th, but he's trying to get me to go to baxley NOW he's got it in his mind that i'm gonna have this baby soon. i'm 35 weeks. i want to stay here as long as i can with him but all my baby stuff is in baxley. so i'm not prepared to have the baby here in tifton. i want to know if i can put off the trip over there for a while longer or if it is best to go on to baxley.
i get up to pee at night and when i lay down my stomach starts cramping and he knows this. plus for two days i had a thick stringy snot like discharge. so he thinks the time is coming. idk?
