Yay! I've finally made it to double digits 99 days left and counting. Just one of the many milestones I get excited about. I know sone of you have been in double digits for awhile but what are some other milestones you're looking forward too? For me being a nicu nurse I know making it to 30 weeks is a big deal, then 36 is exciting cause feeding shouldn't be such an issue. Then 37 weeks and you can think anyway now so exciting

What's the difference between 28 weeks and 30 weeks?

Me, I'm just looking to make it as far as I can...I'm perfectly happy with 35 weeks even.

When you said double digits I automatically thought about my weight (I am at 9 lbs).

I still have more than 99 days till my due date, but I know I will be induced somewhere between 37-38 weeks so Im in double digits too!!

Nia the chance of survival goes up to like 90% at 30 weeks. So that's the difference.

I know we are all getting so far along. I don't know if it is because this is my 3rd, but it is just really flying by. I hope I still feel that way in a couple of weeks!

Nia chance of survival is much greater at 30 weeks due to increased surfactant production in their lungs. The odds of the baby needing a ventilator is less or if needed won't be for as long. As well as chances for brain bleeds which happens frequently with very premature babies is less after 30 weeks.

Thanks Amanda!

Beth, hopefully with your scheduled induction, you will be the only early baby we have...oh wait, Rhietta's going pretty early too.

I hope so, I'm already nervous that I'm being induced 4 weeks early. At least I'll have the amnio first so my induction may not happen that early if he isn't ready to come out.

Plus I'm due right at the beginning of March, so early February isn't as bad as someone due at the end of March having a baby at the same time. This is the first DDC I've been a part of that didn't have a 24 weeker.

I thought the chance of survival was at 90% at 27/28 weeks? I know I looked it up after I found out I had a chance of preterm labor...

Anyways:
I'm excited to hit 30 weeks, only 10 weeks left after that!
And to hit 37 weeks, cause then I don't have to worry AT ALL about this girl coming early
