Preterm labor ?

So here's my story in a nutshell. At my anatomy scan I was diagnosed with a shortened cervix (1.8cm), sent to mfm at the closest facility to my home and was told I was not a candidate for cerclage being 20 weeks with twins. 2 weeks later I ended up admitted as I had shortened to a 1.1, was told again that they wouldn't do anything but bed rest and sent home. 2 weeks ago ( at 24 weeks ga) I was admitted to my local hospital due to being .6, 2cm dilated, and contractions. Procardia held them off for a while but 2 days ago it was discovered that I am now at a 4 with bulging membranes. I'm now at a facility with a great nicu, I decided I would rather go further away then get the dismissive care I had received before. I have had all 4 steroid shots, mag drip, and am on indomethacin. Phew, after all of that I'm just wondering if anyone can relate, and if so how long were you able to keep your babies cooking?( mine are26 5 days). I know every pregnancy is different but I'm having a hard time finding any stories even similar to mine. I do not have pre-e, my body just seems to think it's done. Thanks if you made it through all this especially with formatting issues, paragraphs are not the ipad's friend! Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Preterm labor ?

  • Totally different story, but tribulatline helped me WAY more than the procardia did.  More side effects, but kept the boy in:) 

    Good luck!!!

  • I was in a similar boat at 23w5d with a singleton. I went for my regular doc appt and was told I was dialated between 3-4 cm and sent to the hospital. I stayed there for 11 weeks and now have a happy, healthy 10 month old boy. At 28 weeks there was hope I would go home and do bedrest there, but my membrane was hourglassing. At 31 weeks my water broke (leak). Held on until 34 weeks and my son spent almost 2 weeks in the NICU.
