  • I personally dont know. The March Of Dimes should have alot of info though. And I hope youare on bedrest or in the hospital. You really need to be taking it easy and I do know that every week that goes by greatly increases the chances that your baby will be born healthier. Good luck and I am sorry.

  • u are to the point that ur baby would most likely make it but i would take it really eazy and try to keep her in there atleast another month. if u do have her now she will have to stay in the hospital for a few weeks and she may have some lung problems

  • Even though Terbutaline isnt recognized for use to stop pre-term labor, that is what I was always given when I went into labor early with my 1st pregnancy as well as this one. I know that in my case, I once had to stay in the triage for almost 24 hours, being given terbutaline shots, IV fluids, and anything else to stop the contractions. I was also 2 cm dialated, didnt have my 1st child until 36 weeks.
