Hope you keep hanging in there! I started nifedipine today, and hoping that it, in conjunction with the labetalol, can keep my pregnant for a week or two longer...

I'm so glad you're safe in the hospital. I know it's hard to sit around there and feel like you're just waiting, but that's the safe place to be. I'm praying they take good care of you and make you feel comfortable. Also praying you get another couple days or weeks in before delivery, but 31 weeks is not bad at all.

I know the hospital is not fun but it sounds like the best place for you...hopefully it will help you worry a little less with someone keeping a constant eye on you and baby. I hope that you get a few more weeks before you have to deliver but it sounds like you have a great MFM who will make a good decision about when the baby is better off out than in. I will be thinking of you!!

I do hope that you can have a few more weeks before your baby is born. I remember how frustrating and scary it was for me to keep hearing the nurses tell me that I might need to be delivered at any moment and it was really freaking me out so my husband finally spoke with them and told them to stop telling me that. We understood what was going on, but it wasn't helping me to relax when I was always hearing that.

You've done an amazing job! Try to sleep and rest as much as possible.

You and your little one are in my thoughts! I am hoping you get few more weeks...lets keep fingers crossed.

And, make sure you report each and every thing to the doctor even if it is mild headached. I even tell the nurses if i feel tightness around my eyes. don't keep anything to yourself, okay.

Take care and drink ice water...that usually helps me with my headaches.

I'm glad you're settled in at the hospital. The next few days will be full of decisions. Our prayers are with all of you!

I remember not wanting to tell them about my head aches, as well as the fear they would rush delivery too early. But now I know that they were waiting as long as it was safe for both me and the baby.

Thinking of you, your little one and your husband as well.
