Good morning ladies. I have long followed this board and your amazing little miracles since I was pregnant with my son in 2012 and was on bed rest for preterm labor at 24 weeks. Now, I am due late September and am threatening to follow a similar path with Dd, albeit now starting at 29 weeks.
I was just wondering if any of you could give me an idea of what to expect of a 29-early 30 week baby? I haven't received steroid shots yet, but if I end back up in labor and delivery I will receive them. My contractions are starting to change my cervix ( 1 cm dilated and short cervix) and we can't get them under control. I am home with the precaution to come back to labor an delivery if anything feels different. Thank you in advance for any insight or questions you can give me to ask the drs.
Re: Lurker with a possibility of a preemie
Thanks ladies. I had a follow up with my MFM on Monday and he did another check. He said he thought I was only a finger tip dilated (compared to 1 cm at L&D) but a short cervix, but still pretty high and far back. He said when I get to 2 cm they will give me the steroid shots. They set a goal of 34 weeks to keep her in and we will go from there.
I really appreciate hearing everyone's stories about their babies. It gives me hope that even if she is born early, she will do relatively well. I appreciate all the information!
