i am so scared, can i get some prayers?

Not sure if anyone else haswent through this or not, but I am scared and worried. Myhusband and I are currently 24 and a half weeks pregnant, well roughly 7 hours ago my water broke. I am currently laying in a hospital bed strapped to monitors hoping and praying the our son and mysel will come out of this ok. Lonliness has set in as hubby had to go home and take care of our2 year old and 10 month old. Has anyone went through this? I can't sleep my mind is racing so I decided to hop on my phone and ask this question to hopefully ease my fears. Would love to have some prayers for baby Joshua and I.

  • I would be soo scared..i will def. keep you in my prayers!! I really hope that things come out okay sweetie. Though 24 weeks is early i have seen babies live at 21, 22, 23, and 24 weeks with help from a good NICU. I only say that knowing since your water had broke that your baby will be delivered soon after. Everything will be okay. God doesnt give you anything you cant handle just try not to stress.

  • I bet.. i was in the hospital at 24 weeks myself for bleeding. I was kept over night to make sure i didnt have to my baby delivered. I was so scared at first and i did cry but i stopped after a while and realized it was only making things worse. Now im 33 weeks. I know your situation is alittle more severe than mine was but You have to try and think positive and pray things will work out reguardless of the outcome if that makes any sence. I know its early and your upset and everything. Things like this happen all the time and your at the right place for it. Im sure they should be giving you steroid shots and what not for lung development. Anyhow going to pray for ya right now its 4:54am

  • I am praying for you and your son. Like someone said before - God will not give you more than you can handle. I cannot imagine. Try not to stress..

  • Be encouraged, said a prayer, and to let you know it will be good, I had my son at 26 weeks, and he is almost 5 now. Healthy and happy boy. The medical techonology is great compared to long time ago for helping babies make it through early if is the case.
