I'm 28 weeks and my doctor told me today that my cervix is alarmingly short. He's wanting to give me a set of injections starting tomorrow that will help develop my babies lungs at a faster rate, just in case they try to come too early. He told me that bedrest is my only option. I'm getting really nervous!

Preterm labor at 28 weeks 2 days with twins
by: Melinda

I'm 29 weeks 4 days now with twins, this is my 3rd pregnancy, I have a 6 & 8 yr olds. I woke up last week with contractions, went to L & D & the monitored me & checked me. At first I wasn't dilated, but then a couple hours later they were gonna let me go home, but checked me again & I was 2cm dilated. They transferred me to the bigger hospital that has a NICU, gave me steroid shots for the babies lungs & medicine every 6 hrs to stop the labor. 4 days later they let me go home, I'm on Bedrest which is incredibly hard with two kids, & my fiancé works full time. I'm always nervous about it starting up again, praying they stay cooking longer, they were 2.3 & 2.4 lbs last week.

Hospitalized bed rest
by: Anonymous

Hi,I am 28 weeks pregnant with twins. I was admitted to the hospital at 26 weeks for low birth weight of one of the fetuses and a short cervix. The doctors do not want to chance it to send me home so it looks like I;m in it for the long haul.

bed rest
by: mommy2twins

I am currently 31 weeks, I went to the hospital when I was 29 weeks and 6 days because I lost my mucus plug, I was dilated 1cm and the fetal fibronectin test came back positive. They gave me the steriod shot and transported me to another hospital who deals with preterm babies. They were able to stop my contractions (that were 3 min apart) and were going to send me home but said my cervix was too short to chance it. Hang in there girl and stay off your feet as much as possible, you dont want to be on bedrest in the hospital, trust me! You look great!

Well I haven't been told anything about being hospitalized, but I have a check up appointment at the end of the week and I i'll see if my cervix has changed in any way. As for now i'm just laying around the house and hoping these injections have done something.

Bed Rest
by: Tiffany

Hi. I'm 27 weeks and got put on bed rest at 24 weeks because my cervix was thinning. So far since i've been on bed rest everything has stayed the same and I get to be at home. My doctor said if it got any worse I would have to go into the hospital for injections to mature the babies. Are you having to go into the hospital?
