Dr's will do everything they can to stop your labor. Even if it's just days, every moment that little one is inside you is important. 30 weeks is so early but NICU are so advanced. Advocate for yourself if you feel the need to.

I went into PTL at 31 and they managed to stop, but I wasn't progressing. It was still the most gut wrenching scared moment of my life. Stay strong and vent if you need to.

Sending hugs and positive thoughts!
I have a colleague who had the same thing around 29 weeks, and after 2 weeks in the hospital, it all stopped and she went home! She delivered her baby at 39 weeks.

Like drudai said, 29 weeks have good odds. Yes, they will need care, but their lungs have done quite a few milestones by now. Any day your LO gets in there is great and if IF baby comes out, you'll have doctors right there to take care of you and the LO!

Hi Jadey,

I’m so sorry that you are going through this and am keeping my fingers crossed for you that everything stops and Little One stays put!

I was admitted 3 weeks ago at 26 weeks with contractions and a positive test, and as drudai said it is the most terrifying experience. I’m still terrified every day that the next cramp I get is going to be the one that leads to DS arriving, but importantly it hasn’t so far... I’m 29+2 now so have held on for 3 weeks so far. I’m hoping for many more weeks as I’m sure you are too.

I don’t have any advice really as nobody has been able to tell me when or if things will either escalate or settle either... but I have seen lots of stories of people who have managed to stop things and then haven’t laboured for many more weeks or have even gone full term. So it’s hard but I really don’t think anybody can predict. All I am doing is resting as much as possible and keeping really hydrated. Hopefully you will be on your way home soon to rest and keep baby cooking.

I’m sending you lots of hugs and best wishes x

Hope you’re doing okay and that things are stopping Jadey.

Hopefully it won’t be needed but I’ve been told that it makes a massive difference that you’ve had the steroids, so you definitely have that in your favour.
