I had my first daughter at 23weeks on May 25, 2008. She weighed 1lb, 3.6oz and was 13 inches long. They expect an e-coli infection caused me to go into labor.
However, my cervix with my current pregnancy is measuring at 2.27cm, when last week it was measuring at 2.6... the week & before at 2.9... then 3.2...3.4, 3., 3.9 at 12 weeks, etc.
I got the steroid shots on Monday and Tuesday because the doctor also suspects me losing my mucous plug over the weekend.
What is everyones experience - how long after you got the 2 steroid shots or lost your mucous plug did you go into labor?
I'll be 28 weeks pregnant on Friday.
i had steroid shot and lost my mucus plug 8 days ago and i am in the hospital until i am 35 weeks or until i deliver. i am 32 weeks and 4 days. from my understanding you can loose your mucus plug and your water not break because my water has not broke. i am in the hospital because i am dilated to a 3 and 75% effaced and when i went into the L&D they said that my contractions were 2-3 minutes apart and they gave me steroid shots and magnesium to stop the contractions and build my twin girls lungs up. now they just want to monitor them since twins a typically early. Good luck and hope you don't go into labor too early.
