k so last night at about 7:30pm i started getting contractions and didn't think much of it cuz they wasn't so colse together like 20mins apart then my hubby got up for work and that was like 9pm and they were every 10-7mins still not to worried about it but i told him hay i might have to call you tonight we might have to go in and then explained what was goin' on and him being a guy" was all excited" me not so excited cuz i'm only 34wks it's way to soon i want to have her when she can come home with me so any ways 10pm rolls around and they're still comming like every 7-5mins so at 11pm i finally broke and decided to call my doc. to let him know i was goin' in well i called hubby and he once again was all excited and was like really s%*# i'll be right there so he shows up and was like are you ready lets go i was like um' are you forgetting something he's like WHAT??? i said our son OH YAH!!!! I'LL GO GET MY MOM so i waited still not excited just flat out scared cuz how soon it is well he got back and she's all excited hubbys all excited and me still not so excited well then my hubby drove like a damm race car driver like that helped with slowing down my contractions well we get there and the contractions are like comming 5-3mins apart and then they tell me ok well your in labor me totally freaked out still cuz i'm only 34wks and they say well doc. wants to pump you full of fluids and if that don't work then he wants us to give you a shot to stop the contractions well they pumped me full of water and my contractions started to come one right after anoter so the nurse gave me the shot which didn't work right away and then every time they had me sitting up my contractions would keep coming so i kept trying to lay back not all the way just alil' bit oh i forgot to tell ya all that to top it all off i had a temp. that wouldn't go down for nothing they gave me some med. and it still went up so me i'm really tired and extreamly scared well i eventually took a nap and after alot of no answers a doc. came in and says well how far along are you i said 34weeks1day so then he tells me well if you when you go into labor again we're not going to stop it your far enough along and her lungs are developed enough that she'll be fine she'll just have to spend some time in the NICU they say that like it's nothing so any ways no baby yet and i'm 34wks and2days!!!! i'm tryin to hold off till at least 36wks so sorry this was so long but wish me luck!!!!!!!!!
Hey sweetie! Good luck holding of on labor! I hope it all works out. I actually didn't know they could stop labor! Ya learn something new everyday!! I'll be thinking of you and hoping that 36 weeks comes and goes and baby still hasn't come!
Hey Girl! Sounds like you had a very scary, tiring night! Well I hope that you can hold your labor off to 36 weeks and get to take your little princess home with you from the hospital. Keep us posted!!
well i caught my sons cold and end up back in the hospital with being really dehydrated it really sucked my son caught the roto virus (just a heads up for first time parents i guess its common i'd never heard of it before and well i guess it's something kids get all the time??? i had no idea? he caught it from day care) well at first i was feeling sick on monday then tue. i slept all day no joke i mean all day my hubby was scared cuz i never do that well then wed. i got up and was still feeling really sick i couldn't even handle looking at food with out puking and drinking any thing was just as bad well then i started getting more contractions so i went to the hospital and they stuck an iv. in me and pumped me full of water cuz i couldn't keep any thing down well they let me go after i got fully hydrated and contractions stoped so then today (thursday) i wake up and have no voice so i really feel like crap and i went and seen a doc. to see if there was any thing i can take to help well he said no just actifed and tyenol so i'm voice-less and feel like crap and the good news is i haven't had her yet so i'm that much closer to her due date!!!! but i dont know i think she's trying to make her grand entrance early but so far i'm just sleeping eating what food i can keep down and drinking water they did say no gatoraid cuz i can cause bathroom issues if ya know what i mean and thats the last thing i wanna deal with right now but thanks for listening and careing so much i'm just trying to get over this cold and hopefully soon!!!!
girls are such a pain in the butt lol. My daughter started the preterm labour thing at 23 weeks.. well guess what... 10 weeks of bedrest, countless trips to the hospital... I had her 2 days before her due date!! now shes 4mths (as of the 23) and loud, huge and got her first tooth lol. Goodluck an dhtings will be fine.
When i was on bedrest they said the same thing, at 34 weeks they wont do anything to stop it because she would be fine, i also got steroid injections for her lungs at 27 weeks. things will be finne. 36-37 weeks would be ideal, but hey u cant stop it fromhappeneing.. GOODLUCK!
