That's what I thought, thankyou for confirming this for me. I am drinking heaps of water so my baby gets something at least. I can't sleep again I think I am nervous about my appointment today. Obviously I haven't sealed and still have no water, just hope everything else is all good. We will soon see xxx

Well I had my appointment today had weekly scan and still no fluid, babys heartbeat is still strong and bladder is full. Got to speak to the nicu doctor today she just went over what could happen like babys limbs distort, severity of lung function, just all the bad stuff again. She said one things for sure your baby is going to have great parents, that comment made me happy. We are going to do all we can for our baby and if our baby is disabled in any way that does not concern us, still our little precious baby whom we will keep and love forever. Still do not know the sex yet obviously doesnt want us to know. Thankyou for my wishes and here we go for another week xxxx

It's a tricky one , as hospitals can be the worst place to pick up infections
Could you not just go in daily for monitoring but stay at home
Will they give you steroids at that point for baby's lungs ?
I suppose it depends on how close you are to the hospital and just what they're scared might happen as well ?
I did stay in for 6 weeks when I had placenta preavia as there was a big risk of placental abruption and massive blood loss, so even the 10 minutes to the hospital might have been too long ,
but if its prem labour they're worried about and you live close by then you would have enough warning to get there
Its not an easy decision to make though, maybe your doctor can help you by going through all the possibilities closer to the time xx

You are absolutly right. Well I live about 15 mins from hospital at the moment but am looking at moving closer to family so they can help us out easier which will mean i will be about 40 mins away from hospital. I guess I could stay at home and monitor babys heartbeat, Im just worried that I read so many stories that babies get distressed or heart changes and they need to do emergency c section, what if Im unaware of this and baby dies inside of me. This one lady everything was good she went in for weekly scans then on 33rd week babys heart beat had stopped, if she was in hospital could they have picked up on babys heart slowing down and do emergency c section? And steroids Im not sure if they do give me steroids should they?
Did you have ruptured membrane as well?
And Im nearly 5 months pregnant and find it hard to breath sometimes like i try really hard to yawn, is this normal, especially after I eat.?
Thankyou for answering me xxxx

It depends , honestly even in hospital they will only monitor you off and on so something could still happen without them being aware
Sometimes if a babies heart just stops in the womb because they're having physical problems then even an emergency section won't save them , they might get a warning with changes or they might not
Obviously though the closer you are to the theatre the better if need be and 40 minutes is a long drive .
I didn't have membrane rupture with the PP, well i did once early on about 17 weeks had one leak because the placenta tore the membranes when it came away a bit but it self sealed, but I had very low fluid for the last 10 weeks of the pregnancy ,that did make me feel more uncomfortable as the fluid cushions you from baby's movements as well normally so i did get more aches and pains and would get a lot of braxton hicks because his movements would irritate my uterus because of the chance of early delivery with the PP I had steroids from 28 weeks, they do make a big difference if baby needs to come early as they help mature their lungs ,hopefully your membranes will heal before then and you won't need to stay in at all , but I did find it reassuring in a way being in because then anything unusual i could ask someone straight away rather than worrying about it at home xx

Thankyou so much Haley, you know what when my waters did break I knew it was my waters even though the first visit to the hospital they said it could just be thrush, something told me it was my waters and that same something told me don't get scared just have faith. So I kept going back to the hospital until I got the answer I was looking for. I really feel everything is going to be as its meant to be. I do have faith in god, Im not an overly religious person but I am spirtual and I do belive in being good to others and not to judge etc. Thankyou for writing to me, hope you have a lovely day, its beautiful and sunny here. Off to look at some bigger houses today, closer to my family, Im so excited, I get easily excited I guess xxxx

I'm going to go with what you said and Im just going to wait and see how we are travelling and listen to the doctors. I do much prefer to be home with my family and I guess any changes I can just get someone to rush me into hospital. Nearly five months pregnant on Monday and heard babys heart beat 158 last night. I didnt get much sleep last night, too busy thinking about everything. I hope we get this house. Have a nice day xxx
