So I have pre e , im 36 weeks 2 days prego today . I had an apt on thursday , dr did my gbs and also cervix ck .I was only dialated to (1) . I had a prev c section . We are tryi. For a vbac this time. He had me gibe bloodand do a 24 hour urine collection I turn in monday. Which is also my follow up w him .
He says if my levels in blood and urine are even slighyly elevated then were done he . Sending me over to the hospital to have her.
I do have pre e im on procardia xl 60 mg daily and asprin 81mg daily. My blood pressure is controlled very well w the medicine. Highest its been so far is 140/90 but thats when my anxiety goes ctazy.

Anyways !!!! If he send me to the hospital on monday I will only be 36 weeks 4 days. Im super scareed and worried her lungs wont be ready , and she will have tk go to the nicu. Ill be 37 weeks on thursday Im so hoping he will let me atleast wait till 37 .

Has anyone had a baby at this time frame ?How were they ? Did they ho home w u ? Any issues ? Also my daughter is small in the 36th % for growth. At 36 weeks ulteasound said she was 5 lbs 15 ozs.

I had ds#2 at exactly 36wks 0days. He was 7lbs 5oz and 18inches long. The only issue I had with him was he had a little trouble with his body temp so they said to keep him extra swaddled and it worked fine he came home with us 2days later.

I haven't. But I've been battling preterm labor since 30 weeks. My Dr said most baby girls are good at 36 and most boys at 37 (boys develop a little slower). I'm 33 weeks now...

My ds was born at 36w exactly. His lungs were great. But he was in a lot of stress in the womb.

My son was born at 35 weeks. He had no issues with his lungs at all. His only issue was he couldn't keep his temp up so his body was dropping weight. They put him in the incubator for a few days on and off and 10 days later we were home :)

They even let me stay at the hospital the whole time and put the incubator in my room so he could stay with me. It was very long and I've never cried so much, but he didn't have any serious medical issues.

He even rolled over at 5 weeks!! Met all his milestones on time, and now he is a nonstop 2.5 yr old who no one would guess was ever a premie, he's huge!!
