  • i was about 2cm dialated then i closed back up...then the other day my OBGYN said i was just open by a dimple...

    the doctors are hoping that i can keep her in for at least until im 36 weeks...so another 2 weeks and i can deliever at my own hospital rather than being transported to a bigger hospital that deals with Premies

  • my best advice would be to go on bed rest... let everyone take care of you so that you can take care of the baby by keeping here up there! =) Good luck...I hope everything works out good for you!
