I am *32* weeks preggo.. I have been on bedrest for quite some time (3 months or more) and I have been *nesting* like crazy the past few days.. I have a TON more energy than usual (still tired but not as exhausted as I have been). I have been on medicine to help pre term labor.. pills and injections.. I also was given the steroid shot to help develop his lungs, etc. whats your stories of early delivery and complications (during delivery and if any with baby after?)

  • i had a baby at 32 weeks. i was experiencing contractions, but because they didn't hurt i didn't think they were contractions. baby stayed in the nicu with no major problems for 26 days. i had a lot of emotional stress going on at the time, and i believe that is why he came early. he started kindergarten this year, and what a cutie!!! he had lung/ breathing issues in the nicu. i think he truly just needed more time with me, feeling me and my heart! he is a shorty, but so am i,so i don't know if that is because he was early. when he gets a cold his cough always sounds tight, and i think that is just the way he is, but it may have something to do with him being early.
    be sure to follow dr's orders mama. it is hard having a baby in the nicu! i think you are very close to being "out of the woods" and i truly wish you the best of luck, health and happiness!

  • I had some preterm labor with my current pregnancy. I did not take any meds, but I went on partial bed rest for 4 weeks. I'm 37.5 weeks pregnant now and in prodromal labor.
