Did any of you ladies have this nagging feeling that your baby would come early?



I have had this feeling ever since we found out that this baby wont make it to 36 weeks. And right now I'm sitting in the hospital on bed rest for preeclampsia. I may be able to go home tomorrow but will have twice weekly appointments. They won't deliver until after 32 weeks, so if thing change like crazy I could end up back here or with a baby if it's after 32 weeks. I just have this feeling in my gut that I won't make it past 34 weeks.



Am I just crazy? Haha

My dd was May 5th - the same week as final exams in college. I knew something would throw things off. So I went to each prof and asking about exam make-ups. They thought I was crazy (it was the beginning of the semester).



I truly hoped I would go late and could pick May 13th for an induction. (long story).



Short story: LO broke water at 32 weeks (end of spring break). They wouldn't deliver until 34 weeks though. I feel VERY cheated out of pregnancy. I'm still bitter that I couldn't finish it out. And I'll never get to experience it again :cry:

I wouldn't say I knew or really had a feeling. I had a friend that was due around the same time as me and her daughter ended up being born at 25 weeks. For some reason I became obsessed with looking up things on preemies after that. For some reason I wanted to know all the info. I could get. My son ended up being born at 28.1 weeks.
