Quoting Annette Topham:" Nope they have not. My cervix is around a 0.5 to a 0.9 in some areas. I am dilated to a 2 1/2 i have ... [snip!] ... i have no idea what this means. Since they said my cervix is rapidly changing, is there a change i can deliver this week? "Well, that depends. You posted 5 days ago that you were 2 1/2 centimeters dilated, are you still in the hospital or did they let you come home? If they stopped your labor and you haven't had a change since then probably not unless you go into preterm labor again. I went into preterm labor with my oldest daughter at 31 weeks, by the time they stopped it I was 3 cm dilated. I carried my daughter to 41 weeks before I went into labor again. You can be dilated for weeks and not go into labor. With that said, a friend of mine went into labor at 27 weeks, they stopped it only for her to go into labor again 3 days later and nothing they did stopped it. She had her son, he's still in the hospital but he's doing great to have been so early. Take it easy and just watch for signs of labor, if you have any, head straight to the hospital.

Quoting RissaBbyGurl:" Its your cervix thinning out, dilating/effacing. Its normal for that to happen, however I don't know ... [snip!] ... and thinning out so early, and the shorter it gets and thinner, the sooner baby shows up, your cervix is what keeps the baby in"
Quoting Annette Topham:" i am 29 weeks right now. its shortening and thinning out as we speak. "
Quoting BrandyJ#3:" I dont understand why he would just say very bad. The worst is you will deliver , right? Which at this point would mean the nicu but his chances of survival are good, right? "
Quoting RissaBbyGurl:" Ah dang girl :/ thats crazy. With all the information you've posted it looks like the baby will be born ... [snip!] ... it doesn't sound like he will be in for much longer. If the Mag and Terb isn't stopping the contractions, not much else can :/"
Quoting Annette Topham:" I am still in the hospital. My cervix is changing very fast they said. I get contractions like crazy ... [snip!] ... Cervix is a 0.5 to a 0.9 and 2cm dilated. or more on that. they didnt check for dilation this time just checked my cervix. "Ok, I must have misread. Have they given you steroid shots to develop his lungs? I had 2 the night I went into labor at 31 weeks just in case she came early. If not, ask them if they plan on doing it because yes, if they can't stop your labor and it doesn't stop on it's own, you'll deliver him. As for exactly when, I can't really say, it just depends on how fast you labor. He'll be in the NICU for a while, but at almost 30 weeks his chances of surviving are really good. As scary as all of this is, try not to stress mama. Stressing will only make things worse.
Quoting Annette Topham:" Yeah i have had the steroids and Pshots. Nothing is keeping this baby inside. They are even afraid to ... [snip!] ... dilation at this point with me having very little cervix left. I am just wondering is it possible i could have him this week?"
