I asked my OB today around when they would no longer try to stop labor. He said between 33-34 weeks That's me!

I'm going to ask J to start carrying his cell at all times as of next week. I have no reason to believe that I will go into labor next week, or in the extremely near future, but I would just feel safer knowing that I can contact him if I need to.

I also learned recently that since my hospital is a low risk hospital and doesn't have a NICU, they will only deliver me at 36+ weeks. If I were to go into labor before that, I would have to go to the hospital that's right down the street from my house. I'm sure it's fine, but would rather not go there, because that's where we spent 24 hours to learn that we had lost our first baby.

I just can't believe that I'm at the point where they wouldn't stop my labor!

Things have changed so much since I had my DD. They would have stopped me up until 37 weeks. I had her at 36weeks6days and only because my water had broken! It scares the begezus out of me that they'd prefer women to deliver that early than stop it.

When I had my dd just 3 years ago they would stop labor until you hit 37 weeks.

But then again we have absolutely NO NICU's at all here so maybe that's why?
