Hi ladies. Based on my history I was pretty sure I would end up here. I lost twins at 18 weeks my last pregnancy and then had a trans abdominal cerclage done before starting IVF again, this pregnancy I lost one twin at 10 weeks and then besides the occasional BH everything was good until 30.5 weeks when I started contracting regularly.
I made it to 36 wheels exactly by take a ton of procardia, bedrest and 5 trips to L & D for terbalutine. I had steroid shots when I was 30.5 weeks.
Baby lukas weighed 6lb at birth and I thought between his weight and being 36 weeks we might avoid the NICU but sadly we have not. He was on CPAP for 3 days and then was moved to the intermediate nursery where he has been the last 4 days. They thought he might have an infection so he has been on antiobiotics. He is finally off IV fluids and starting to eat much better. Luckily my supply is good so I pump around the clock since the breast is a little much right now and we just want him to gain.
He had an episode yesterday where he stopped breathing so now he s there at least 5 more days. :(
This is exhausting especially while healing from a c-section and I am angry. I am so thankful he is here after everything we have gone through but I just want him healthy and I am angry at my body.
I knew you ladies would understand and I think you are all amazing!!
