  • Hello.
    That happened to me, at 19 weeks. They were able to hold my twins off until 32 weeks. I was on bedrest, had weekly appointments and sonograms, and at 29 weeks was admitted to the hospital were they gave me a shot to speed up the development of my kids heart and lungs. I was put on a magnesium drip to try to stop the labor. All of their efforts worked well and at 31 weeks my blood pressure was through the roof. One week later my boys were born via emergancy C-section they spent 52 days in the NICU and now exactly 4 years later. I am the proud Mom of two beautiful healthy little boys.
    I know it is very scary and I wish you the best. If you want to talk, PM me. Good luck and god bless!
