Hey ladies,
25wks along and my lo has hypoplastic left heart syndrome.. I am very nervous wreck about going into labor early or even having to be induced:( for my first lo I didn't even know I was in labor but I end up at the hospital and they said I was in labor... So hears my question I have been contracting for 4wks now they said my cervix is closed and I am not dilated.. But I have been sore and extremely tired more than normal... Should I ask my doc to see of they want me on bed rest... I do drink lots of water and try to relax as much as possible but with a 17month old it's kinda hard. I don't know if anyone else has been like this.. Just scared!!! Advice please

I just hate asking things even though I should know the answer.. I had to switch my ob so I have to see a whole new one on Wednesday... I know that they know what they are doing still scared!! It's weird..

I would think that if your baby has HLHS your doctor would want that baby in there as long as possible. You should probably check in with your doctor.
