Please I need some support from anyone in a similar situation. I am 25 weeks exactly. Yesterday my water started going at 6:20pm, I was admitted to hospital at 7pm. Had steroids and antibiotics at 9pm. by 1:15am this morning they scanned me and seen no waters around the baby.

Has anyone had success stories in this situation or similar?

What should I expect?

Any questions I need to ask neonatal team?

P.s. This was a low risk pregnancy before this.

I am very teary and need to get a grip to be the best I can for my baby at this time (So any advice welcome).

I have my real life support however my support has not experienced this situation.

Thank you in advance.

Hi everyone,
I have good news to share. Baby A is still on full feeds and optiflow now. so this week has been good so far. hopefully once she starts gaining weight we should hopefully see a finish line in the distance.
Hopefully my next update will be with an estimated date for discharge.

Hope you are taking good care of yourself too x

Hi everyone,
Sorry I haven't been on here for a while.
Baby A is doing well she is on full feeds for her weight. She is currently 3lbs. Her pda is closing and it reopened 2 weeks ago due to an infection. So now we are working on getting her off the ventilator.
She is really trying her best, so hopefully we get her off the vent and she stays off.
Thank you so much

@mummyloves09 still thinking of you

Just seen this thread but am thinking of you Mummyloves09, well done for staying so amazingly strong.

Sounds like things are looking up and I'm wishing you and your little girl all the best flowers

Ah ok. No worries. And also do feel free to ask any questions you have (Mum of an ex 26 weeker who is now just over the age of 1 caught up size wise and developmentally. I didn’t think the day would come but I don’t tell people he’s premature any more).

Mummyloves09 Sun 18-Mar-18 11:47:47

Thank you, unfortunately I don't have Facebook I deleted it a while ago.

KoshaMangsho Sun 18-Mar-18 11:09:28

Good luck! That sounds far more positive. Hope she’s on CPAP soon. And do join our Preemie FB group if you haven’t already. Almost all of us have gone through this stuff.

Hey ladies,
I hope everyone is well and thank you for all the support. Just a quick update.
So after this testing week it's starting to look up. The course of ibuprofen to treat the PDA did nothing baby started to deteriorate her chest was full of fluid and she had to be fully sedated and the ventilator took over her breathing temporary. So yesterday we discovered it's actually an infection on her chest so started to treat that and we started a second course of ibuprofen 3 days ago which has now basically closed the PDA. So this is a good start to next in comparison to the week we just had.
She has also put back on some weight and is now 1090 grams.

How are you and baby getting on, OP? Hope she's feeling better and that you're doing okay thanks

Northernbeachbum Mon 12-Mar-18 13:34:53

@mummyloves09 sending you and Amayah positive thoughts. Hoping the ibroprofen does the trick

Bug hugs for you and baby girl OP flowers x

Thank you all for your kind messages

I think your feelings are totally understandable, must be difficult. Hope things turn a corner and the medication helps quickly.

mistermagpie Sun 11-Mar-18 21:04:16

I've only just seen this thread. My friend has twins at 27 weeks, they were tiny and it was a very very long journey but they are 1 soon and doing fabulously.

Hang in there op, thinking of you x

HelenaJustina Sun 11-Mar-18 20:21:38

Today is a difficult day for so many mothers, hang in there. Xx

ClareB83 Sun 11-Mar-18 20:15:37

I'm sorry @Mummyloves09 this must be such a hard time. I think it must be good they've identified the PDA early though and hopefully the medication works soon.

Mummyloves09 Sun 11-Mar-18 19:44:09

Sorry I have been away for awhile had alot going on.
Baby was doing so well Then we discovered she has PDA. And the Drs are trying to give her ibuprofen to try and close it. So she has been up and down.
Today was really hard as it was my first mothers day with two children yet one of them I haven't even held yet, it's feels surreal. I was really heartbroken today. I know I should be grateful for what I have but I just didn't feel that way today.
