I need some support!
« on: February 11, 2012 at 10:38 PM »
Good evening to all of you, my name is Valentina I am mother of a sweet 3year old and pregnant with my second baby! I am 26 weeks and 1 day, my due date is 18 may and I am in the hospital since 1feb! My cervix is shortening and I am 3cm dilated and 50% effaced! I was in Labor last week and they got to stop my contractions and I got 2 shots of steroids for my baby girl! I am no longer on magnesium or any kind of medicine besides 17p injections once a week! I miss my baby boy, my dog, my house and my friends!!! My husband has been staying at the hospital with me and we are praying to keep her inside as long as possible! For how long can I go with 3cm and 50% effaced? I am so scared :(

 hey! Cheer up :) sorry you're feeling ignored... I can't say much about cervix already dilated but i'm pretty sure i read some stories on this forum that were encouraging... Some people have been in a similar situation as you and were well looked after in hospital and had an happy ending. Hope someone gives u more concrete feedback soon. Hang in there! :)
