I went to my scan on Thursday July 23rd and they told me I had a short cervix and to keep taking progesterone and I can keep doin my normal activities. On Monday night I was having what I thought was cramps but ended up being contractions. I then went to the bathroom and as I was cleaning myself I felt something hard(my membranes). I called my husband and we rushed to the hospital when I got there they told me I was 9centimenters dilated. They gave me steroids and magnesium for the baby’s little lungs. I was in the hospital for 4 days trying to keep my little guy in on Thursday morning I could no longer wait as the contractions were very strong and told my nurse I was ready for epidural. My little guy arrived Thursday at 1:57 pm. He was born 1 lb 6 ounces. I was extremely scared seeing him with all the wires and vents to help him breathe. Just two weeks ago they did a procedure to close his Pda both me and my husband were so terrified as we couldn’t be in the room with him. Yesterday we got the great news that his pda is now closed . After his pda closed he is gaining weight and is now 2 lbs and 8 ounces. I am terrified every day but alway return and will support my baby at all cost. My little man is 6 weeks now and God is with me every step of the way.
Hi Stephany, I saw your post, and I wanted to check in to see how the past few weeks have been for you. I’m the mom of a 24 week, 5 day preemie (now almost 11 months!) so I know how different things can be day by day. I’ll be praying for you, and I’m here if you want to talk.
