It does seem selfish to me. The baby needs to bake as long as possible and be healthy to live outside mommy's belly, free of intervention. I completely understand that there are circumstances that this does not apply to. Sometimes baby is safer outside of mommy's belly, but let the doc tell you the baby needs to come out. And don't let them talk to you into an induction or c-section for their convenience or gain.

:lol: It gets frustrating at the end. But I can 100% say that I knew my body well enough to know that I wasn't going to make it to 40 weeks :P

I know someone in PTL at barely 31 weeks and wants to stop her meds because they make her feel "yucky". I was like WTF?!

If your baby is ready, it's ready. Docs won't stop contractions past a certain point because it is okay. But if baby or body is not giving signs of needing to have the baby, then no reason to evict the child. That's what OP is meaning. And pregnancy is not an easy road and NO ONE ever said it was all fun. I like being pregnant, over all, but there are days that I'm like..OMG can this be over already! But won't induce or ask to be induced just because I'm uncomfortable.

In her defense PTL meds suck ass and have HORRIBLE side effects. If she has to be on them for much longer they may even cause some serious issues.

I was just being silly :wink: I went into PTL with both my kiddos. There wasn't any way in hell I was going to make it to 40 weeks.

Aw, that's awful :( I went into PTL around 31 weeks with my first. It was so scary. A part of me was like ''well, if the meds don't work I just get to meet him sooner'' then the other part of me was freaking out thinking he may not make it. I ended up going til the day before his due date :)

I understand but her complaint was just spotty vision and drowsiness from the pills. You're on bed rest... if you are tired go to sleep. Its selfish to stop taking something that's helping your child, its part of being a mother, put them before us.

I agree unless it's causing severe harm to the mother. Spotty vision, though, could mean that it's making her blood pressure rise which isn't good either.

She would have mentioned if it was up, she takes it several times a day. She's one of those people who is paranoid over every little thing in life. I seriously wonder if she stressed or worried herself so bad it caused the ptl. I always would try to explain stuff and calm her down but it didn't always work. One night she almost had a panic attack because she had been laying on her back and flipped out swearing she had given the baby brain damage.

That's what I'm saying. There are times when there is nothing mommy or the docs can do to stop it and they will only try for so long. It's the women that just don't like being pregnant and are ready for baby to be out. That's selfish...not your situation. I'm glad your kiddos are all good!

When on these meds, isn't mommy monitored pretty closely? My friend just had a low fluid scare and has GD and is going in twice a week to be checked. I would think your friend is like that too...
If laying on my back causes those issues, my kid is in trouble then. I play on my phone every night for a few hours before bed and I'm on my back and sometimes with my heating pad.
