I just had my daughter at 28 weeks in.December and I found out last night that I'm pregnant again. My period is about a month late. Ive been testing since my period was 3 days late and they have all been negative until last night. I am about 8 weeks according to my last period. My first was a 30 weeker. I'm just so overwhelmed. I'm in shock. I Dnt want to do the nicu again. I'm praying for a full term baby this time. Once I get an ultrasound I know ill relax more and fall in love with my baby
I only have one child but he was a 26 weeker and I am so paranoid that when we have another baby that it will also be a preemie. I think they said you have a 30% chance of preemies after you've had one.
Do you know why she came at 28 weeks? Is she okay now?
My first was a late preemie, 35 weeks, so I was pretty scared I wasn't going to carry to term either. I actually had regular contractions at 35 weeks during this pregnancy! But here I am 3 weeks later, still pregnant. So it's very possible.
How is he doing? I've been unable to carry to term both times and they have really tried to get me there. With my last the perinatologist and Ob said they are going to try other stuff to help me get further if I ever got pregnant again. I had no plans for a 3rd but God did and I'm just going to trust in him. Its scary after a preemie huh? Esp after both of my preemies. We've spent a total of 18 weeks in the nicu. Thankful both girls are healthy as can be. The little one just needs to gain more weight.
My first I went into labor at 30 weeks and they couldn't stop it and then I started to abrupt. My second I was hospitalized at 25 weeks BC they had a hard time getting my labor stopped then at 28 weeks my water broke and they couldn't stop my contractions.
i had my first LO in january this year. He was 25weeks4days gestation and weighed 1lb13oz. We had to have IUI to get pregnant in the first place so i am not concerned about it happening on it's own but i am worried that when/if we decide we do want another that the same thing will happen. The nicu was awful, not in the care he received, they were awesome for that. Just being there day in and day out, not knowing what you might walk into every morning and the worry took a terrible tole on me. Almost thinking Eli will be my only child.
