My friend Go-go is 30 weeks preggo. The did a stage 2 ultrasound today on her and told her she is 1 cm dialated and 70 % effaced. The doctor (who isn't that great in my opinion) told her she's got 2 - 2 1/2 weeks before she goes into labor. And instead of Community where she was supposed to deliver they're sending her to Mease Countryside (a MUCH better hospital) because it has a NICU. She is (understandably) terrified about her baby, Jordan, being stuck in NICU. He's currently 3 lb 14 oz. and NICU is usually under 5lbs. and they're giving her steroids and stuff to help him develop more. I tried to reassure her the best I could (my sister and I were born at 31 1and 33 weeks and we're fine) but terror is winning and I want to be as supportive as I can, I just don't know what to say to help her.
