I went into labor with my son at 32 weeks and had him 5 days later. I just turned 32 weeks today with my 2nd. I really hope she continues to stay in there for at least another 4+ weeks. I'm on pelvic rest and im taking weekly 17p shots. I hope all this helps. Any of you preemie mom's make it to term the 2nd time around?

My son was born at 35 weeks and had IUGR. When I hit 37 weeks with DD I wanted to throw a party. When I hit 40 weeks and there was no progress, I wanted her OUT. :D Good luck mama!

Yep! Good luck! Dd had really bad jaundice and they were wanting to keep her in NICU because it wasn't going down fast enough. Already having had one NICU baby, I threw a freaking FIT. Lol. But she came home and all was well. And now I'm shocked at how big she is. Ds was only 3lbs 14oz when he was born and 4lbs when he left NICU. It's so funny to see how BIG she is compared to him when he was a baby! You're going to do great! Every week is a miracle!

that it is!! wow he was a tiny lil man.. my son was 3 weeks earlier than him and was 4lbs 12oz.. but aint that what IUGR is? I bet it was super cool to be able to take her home.. I had to drive to the nicu that 2 hours away for 3 weeks to see him it was so hard. They paid for 3 nights but the other 4 we had to drive! it was the hardest thing ever.. I bawled my eyes out having to leave him. I don't want to go through that again. My home hospital delievers at 36+ weeks as much as I want to make it more than that.. 36 is my goal! I want my doctor and not some random person Idk and its also the week I kept hearing over & over when I was in labor. Kinda stuck with me.
