Re : anyone had a baby early and what happened?

<t>As the others have said, the outcomes are really variable at this stage of gestation. If you can hold off to 28 weeks, that is said to be a big milestone. I only lasted 4 days from admission to hospital and in reflecting back, close to 2 weeks exactly from when my symptoms started. Our little guy...

Re : uncontrollable movements

<t>My son was a 26 weeker and also has cerebral palsy (CP). I was told that about 1/3 of preemies are born with some form of CP. The risk is higher, the younger the gestational age. I agree with Jamie - it's best to follow up with your pediatrician and/or neonatologist because if it is CP, early int...

Re : New mom of a preemie

<t>Oh yes, I remember the guilt! It is totally normal and yet totally unproductive. My son was born at 26 weeks as well, so I know how brutal the NICU is with your precious babe born so early. My doctor told me that girls tend to do better than boys in the NICU, so prayers that your daughter will sa...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>I was also really swollen, exactly like you are describing, along with a 10lb weight gain in one week! Luckily I had been doing reading about PE before it struck, so I knew what to look for. Even my doctor originally wasn't too concerned (as everything was normal at my prenatal appt. 2 weeks prio...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>It's not too late to ask to be admitted. Just tell the doctor that you are scared and are not able to rest properly at home because you feel you would be better monitored at the hospital, all true by the way. Better safe than sorry. I also recall some horror stories from some military wives. You ...

Re : UPDATE :( hospital bedrest

If you have to deliver early, 32 weeks is a good place to be, esp with the steroids on board. Hoping you can make it a few more weeks!

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

Oops, I clicked the wrong button and sent my reply before I was done. I meant to say I would also be INSISTING on the steroid shots NOW!

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>I cannot believe they are not admitting you - this seems very negligent to me! There are so many horror stories on here of women who have lost their babies in a matter of hours, some even while in hospital. Can you INSIST on being admitted with your 24 hour proteins running so high? I would also ...
