Hi my name is Krystle,
I'll give you a little bit of a background. I'm 29 years old, and I have 3 wonderful kids. 8,7, and 3. Getting pregnant with them was easy, but staying pregnant with them wasn't. When I was pregnant with our oldest my pregnancy was picture perfect til 30 wks then I went into labor the day I turned 30 wks. I didn't know I was in labor, I had no contractions, I just couldn't get comfortable so my husband took me to the hospital and I was 5 cm and 80% e-faced. They were able to stop my contractions with Terbutaline and Magnesium Sulfate. I remained on hospitalized bedrest til I had him at 35wks.
15 months later I gave birth to our second child heres that story in a nut shell
Our Second child I went into labor at 24 wks (scary!!) when I got to the hospital I was 4cm and 50% efaced. They were able to stop it (had a harder time doing so this time around) I was in the hospital for a month, then they sent me home because by some miricle my cervix closed to 2cm. (probably all the time I spent in trendelenburg) I was sent home til I have him via c-section at 34wks.
4 years later I gave birth to our 3rd child
This time I was referred to a Maternal Fetal Medicine dr. from the beginning, I saw that dr once a week to keep an eye on my cervix because they were unsure of WHY I went into preterm labor, but ruled out incompetent cervix. They put me on extra progestorne, since it had shown signs of helping people stay pregnant that don't have an incompetent cervix, and it worked for me...They keep you on it til 35 weeks then have you get off of it cause they don't want it in your system when you deliver. 1 wk later I gave birth.
