  • I think a baby will come when it needs to, unless there truly is something off with how your body is timing things. Like a faulty oven timer, just you're not cooking a turkey this time.
    Anyhow, if it were me, and not saying you haven't done this, research the pills you're taking. Research like crazy. Information is your best defense....and offence really. In some cases it might be better for baby to come early rather than force him to stay in with medications.

  • At 28 weeks the babies chance of survival is about 90% given immediate care in a NICU. However, there are still considerable risks to having a baby that premature. I say if you trust your doctor, and if you are strong enough to do so, hang in there. If it gets worse, go to the hospital! I assume they have you on bed rest?

  • Yeah, if the pills don't seem to work you can go to the hospital and they can give you stronger stuff. What you need to do is put yourself on bed rest. Try not to be too active.

  • okay. feet up. pick up nothing heavier than a loaf of bread. do nothing stressful. nothing painful. bed rest. and take heart. if the baby does come early, its not necessarily going to kill him...but do try to have the baby at a hospital with a nicu. they saved my son's life. he came at 35 weeks.
