  • how does that work and will she have any hospital stay at all? And would she miss any work?

  • why is she worried about missing work? i answered the same question in the other post about my cousin. if they have her deliver vaginally they will induce her labor.

  • I'm sure that she will miss work, she needs a few days for her body to recover, but its the emotional recovery that she will probably need the most!

  • At 4-1/2 months along, she'll more than likely have to go to the hospital and be admitted. They'll induce her labor and she'll deliver the baby naturally as long as there aren't any complications. She will most definitely miss some work as her body will need some time to heal after giving birth even though the baby is not full term. The doctor's should be able to give her an idea of what will happen.

  • Who cares about missing work??? Why do you think she is misscarrying anyways? Did the doc say that? Anyways, they will probably induce her and have her deliver vaginally... inducing at such an early stage can be painful and may take a while
