I went into labor at 28 weeks was in the hospitle for 3 days (went in on monday morning after fainting and was release wensday) given 2 steriod shots threw my butt to develop my sons lungs as a precaution.  I was put on moderated bed rest (meaning i could get up and move as long as I sat or laid down most of the day.  I went into labor again friday night (the same week) and had my son at 29 weeks via emergancy c section.  He was born march 2011 and came home May 2011 so we were in the NICU about 3 months.

boy or girl? Girl: Rhylee Jessa

steriods? Yes...I can't remember the name, but the one for the lungs, I got that at 29 weeks

how many weeks were you at delivery? 34 weeks 1 day

and how many days were you in the nicu? 10 days. 

My daughter was 3lbs 15.4oz, 17in long 11.8in head cir. She came home at 4lbs 1oz. At 29 weeks I started bleeding, they said a slight placental abruption. I was put on bed rest. I was in and out of the hospital every week until I hit 34 weeks. I thought sitting at the table sorting papers was ok...apparently not because I started having non-stop contractions. They weren't bad though but because they were consistant and not stopping, in I had to go. I didn't even feel most of them, they had to tell me lol. Well this was 3am. My Dr came in the morning and said they were going to do an emergency c-section because they couldn't stop the contractions and she was breech. Spent 10 days in the NICU, counting the day I was being monitored, hospital stay 11 days. I had to go home at day 5. Today she actually had her developmental and behavioral assessment at 5 months (adjusted age 3 months, 3 weeks) She is now 12lbs 9oz (fully dressed), 24in long and her head cir is 15in. She is doing great!! The Dr actually said she is advanced even for a normal 5 month old! When she was in the NICU they said she was advanced for her 'age' as well.  How is your little boy doing?

My daughter was born 12 wks early. Se was 2lbs and we were in the NICU two months. She will be a year old this month and is doing great!

My water broke at 29 wks and I had to have 2 steroid shots within 24 hrs for her lungs and I was hospitalized for a month. They tried to keep her in until 34 wks but she came at 33wks because my placenta ruptured. I bled and leaked everywhere all the way up to that point and almost lost her. She was a strong one though because she was in the nicu only for 3wks. She was suppose to come home 5 days before her 3wk mark but she had a scene of apnea and she quit breathing in her sleep so they kept her for 5 more days which made it 3wks. I was in labor for like 15 hrs but for like 5 or 6 hrs of it they just kept giving me fluids because they found a uti and yeast infection I just got for being on bedrest and they thought it was because of that. When the contractions got so strong I couldn't take it then they checked me, imagine that, I was a 3. I knew it wasnt from no yeast infection or uti. Then like a few hrs and 5 pushes later she was born, lol. She weighed 3lbs and 15 oz.
