Hi ladies, I usually post over on the high risk board, but wanted to come over here. Short version of a long story. DD turned 2 in Feb., was born at 33.5 weeks due to PROM and I also had (have) gestational hypertension. I was already in the hospital when I ruptured due to the high bp. I had been showing signs of PTL on and off (mild contractions prior to the rupture) and due to the high blood pressure I had received 2 rounds of steroids. Needless to say, she was born a GIANT 6lbs 4oz (yes at 33.5 weeks and no I didn't have GD -- everyone asks, and yes they think my dates were right...LOL). She did spend a few days in the NICU and was a few more days in the step down nursery and then had to be followed with out patient to the hospital every day. I know I got lucky with her. I am now pg with DS, currently 31 weeks. My bp is medically controlled and I am on the p17 shots (have bene since 16 weeks). This baby is too measuring big (I think I just grow them big). So finally, here's the question.....for any of you who did the p17 shots, how effective were they for the 2nd baby? And when you stopped them, how soon did you go into labor? I did ask on the high risk board, but only got one response. Best wishes to all of you and thanks for listening.
