i went into preterm labor and they got it to stop for now and i am on nifedipine as needed for contractions but the dr only want me to take them if the contractions start getting stronger which is about every 8 hours. so far i have been able to keep them at bay. they gave me 2 steroid shots while in the hospital. and i was 2cm on monday morning.. but that really doesnt matter since you can be that way for weeks...as long as you dont have the strong contractions to encourage it to open more.
the dr says we may not be able to stop him from coming... i am 34 weeks and 1 day they want me to make it to at least 35 i would rather make it to 36-37 at least but i will take what i can get...
how many of you had babies at 34-35 weeks and did you have the steroids were you babies healthy did they have to stay in the nicu or did they do great on their own?? just some encouragement i guess i am so worried he will have to stay in the nicu they said he is already weighing 5.2 but then i was also just told that weight doesnt matter anymore...
