SmilingBlueEyes, OBnurseHeather and others..

  1. I don't know if you remember, but about 5 months ago I posted and asked for advice about my work situation - I was working the floor, going to school, with a preschooler at home; I was aboout 10 weeks pregnant, contracting, with a history of misc and PTL.
    I received quite a bit of encouragement to stop lifting and get as much rest as possible and even quit work and school for a while.
    Well, I just wanted to let you know that all of you were right - and thank you!
    I didn't quit school, but got off the floor and even with all the changes I made to my busy schedule, it looked like I was about to go into labor at 30 weeks. i made it to 33 weeks so far on terb and restricted activity, but i'm sure I will go term this time.
    Unfortunately, I don't remember the names of all the people who gave me advice, but I just wanted to let you know that your advice really helped and was on target.

    You are MORE than welcome. Your baby and your health are worth it. I know, I have had a preterm baby (34 weeks) and a full-termer (38 weeks) makes a huge difference the few weeks you can give them to help them mature and grow. I am glad things are going well for you and I wish continuing good health and much happiness! Bless you!

    33 weeks and counting? Congratulations, it's just a matter of time now and you will have a new baby in your arms. Hang in there.
