1 Bump

So I went to the hospital in preterm labor I am 33 weeks.

They gave me magnesium in a IV drip and that didnt really help stop the contractions...Then they gave me 3 shots of brethine over a 24 hr period...That seemed to get everthing undercontrol.....Has anyone ever been through this and went to trem with no problem? Or do they end up going back in labor??

  • I did it THREE times with my second... lol, she was DETERMINED!

    But the third time I told her (yes, I spoke to my stomach, lol), "Listen here miss thing! You are GROUNDED to your tummy for the next FOUR weeks! I better not be back in here to have you early again!" Lol, the nurses were laughing their butts off at me... but she didn't do it again. :)

    I went in at 35 weeks, 6 days at like 10PM. they told me ha dI waited two more hours I would have been 36 weeks and would have had to have her early because they couldn't stop the labor after 36 weeks. :(

    Good luck! I'm sure you'll be fine! :)
