i am 28 weeks pregnant, my water broke at 27 weeks and now i am in the hospital on bed rest. i am to be induced at 34 weeks which is August 25. i have been given the steroid shots and antibiotics. no contractions and my cervix is closed. my fluid levels at most was 8.6 but it fluctuates and has been as low as 4. this is my 2nd child, my first was full term 40 and 3 days. he is 17 months its hard being away from him and i havent been able to see him often. i am having a girl now she is small, 38th percentile. i am nervous and dont know if i will make it to 34 weeks.. or what i should be expecting. im underweight and i cant seen to put on any weight which worries me. 6 weeks to go.. can i make it? will she be okay? im terrified. everything seems to be going wrong.

Hello there...well i'm praying that you make it through all of your weeks...I have a 24mth old and am 13 weeks preg...

Sorry you are having so many complications.. I had a few with my first, was on bed rest for 3mths at home..not as easy as I thought it was going to be, but it was needed...I had to go into the dr's office often during the week just to get monitored...but was all worth it...

I'm sure it's not easy to gain weight at the hospital with their yummy (not) food. When i went in I could only eat applesauce and salad...

But hang in there..."The Help" is a really good book to read to help you pass the time..
