On the baby bump app on my phone, one female was due one day after me.. dec 9th. She went to the hospital a few days ago for contractions. They said her water didn't break but it was dropping low. They wouldn't let her leave unless she had the baby. She ended up having her baby aug23 1pound 9oz little girl.

I'm just thankful all of us aren't having any problems and I hope it continues to go that way.
Oh so I had a big laugh today when I went to work and my sergent and co worker both had apple sauce for me. I guess they gave into the crave. Must have gotten sick of hearing my mouth

Such a scary thing to go through. My short term goal is to keep this baby in until 30 weeks. My long term goal is of course 38+ weeks. As much as I'd like to make it close to my due date I'd be happy to make it to the end of October.

Lol I stopped fighting crime when I was five weeks prego. Seemed like once I found out I was pregnant every call I went to everyone wanted to fight. The last day I worked I ended up having to push this lady to the ground once I went to the bathroom I was bleeding. So my body was telling me to chill out. So now I'm in the 911 center taking police reports over the phone. My plan is to work up til two weeks of my due date.

I love it when each week goes by and knowing the baby is getting bigger and healthier...I hope we all give birth at a safe time for our babies...preferably at least 37 wks or more.

That's so horrible. She and her baby will be in my prayers. On the bright side, I know a woman who delivered at 23 weeks, the baby was just over a lb, but she is now a thriving healthy 3 year old. I wish her and her family the same outcome. And I'm very thankful we appear to be a healthy bunch on this board!

How sad and scary. I can't imagine having Addie any time soon. :(

I'm thankful, too. I hope that poor woman has a great hospital in her town. My friend's daughter had to be flown to Ann Arbor, MI and was in the NICU for months. Aside from the touch and go circumstances, it was hard for her to be so far from home. I worry about my water because I lost it all with Olivia. Luckily, she was a little over 36 weeks so we were fine to deliver.
