When i was 22 weeks, my water broke. Ive been stuck in the hospital since. Im board and scard, not a very good combo. I know my daughter is going to be born early, Im prepared for that. My first child was born @ 32 weeks, but he was healthy and just had to gain weight. This is alittle more serious. Im looking for someone thats gone through something like 'hospitalized bedrest' and premies this early. Can anyone help me?

I was hospitalized complete bed rest, on mag and other fun drugs starting at 23w6d. Hang in there and do your best to stay positive (way eaiser said then done). There is group called sidelines that has women that have been in your situation. Look them up on the web and get a support person. My boys ended up delivering at 25w4d. Honestly it was not easy but they made it through the 3 month NICU stay and are now 1 year adjusted.
