Have been in and out of the hospital since Monday now I can't leave


Don't really know the right place to post this but Monday I went to my normal ob appt and was sent to l&d because of contractions and changing cervix was monitored for contractions and make sure baby was ok, I was deff contracting but cervix stayed the same and baby looked good so was sent home after 8 hours. Tuesday was contracting again and had bleeding the night before so was sent back in again all looked ok so was sent home, that night though bleeding became heavy and contractions became painful tried to bare with it because thursday my oldest started high school and daughter started middle school but couldn't do it, do now I'm in with contracting painfully bleeding from unknown sources oh and to top it off baby is breach and I met with NICU today to explain what its going to be like with a 32 weeker I'm so terrified because i'l have to have a c section and a premiee, this is my sixth baby I just want him healthy but the odds are so much better after 34 weeks but with the bleeding it can happen anytime now I'm so lost right now

I'm sorry to hear your having such a scary time of it! Do they have you on terbutaline to slow/stop the contractions? Were any of your other babies premature? You are in the best place and hopefully if they can't slow things down they can prepare baby with steroids, babies are strong resilient little things and he/she will have a team of people ready to help if needed.

So sorry to hear, I had PTL at 31 weeks and I was scared bonkers. I would listen to your Dr's and try to keep calm. NICU makes advancements all the time and if baby makes an early entrance, he'll be in good hands.

Obviously it's hard to stay stress-free but do try to take it easy.

Thank you ladies! It's really hard, I've had preterm labor before, scary preterm labor but they stopped my contractions this time they won't stop ive had tributaline, and was on procardia around the clock but didn't do much the next step would be mag but because of bleeding they don't want to. I thought last night it was going to happen his heart was in the low 100's but I was exhausted and the contractions were and are wearing him out but I slept a few hours and I think they calmed down during that and he's in the 120's now, not great, but better. Ive had 3 shots of steroids, will get my last shot today. I just really want to keep him in until he's a bit bigger but I'm putting my trust in God right now he's the only one who truly knows what's best. Again thank you ladies, it's hard not to feel isolated

I'm hoping your LO stays put for now, but 32 wks is totally doable if it it comes to that. Thinking of you. I know you've been struggling a while with pre-term labor.

Thank you tankel! Yes it's been an ongoing battle since 18 weeks, had a good stretch of feeling great and no problems but then it took a turn, I'm not so much afraid he be sick, as all of it, the NICU stay, c section after 5 vaginal, breastfeeding, having 5at home, but thank you I appreciate it!
