T&Ps Please for a friend!

I have a friend who is pregnant with her 3rd boy. She is currently 30 weeks and is scheduled for a c/s mid August. However, last night she was admitted to the hospital because she began having a lot of contractions. As of her last update (about 2 am) they had been unsuccessful at stopping them. They gave her a shot to help mature his lungs and will be monitoring her over the next few days and hope they can stop the contractions.

Anyone who prays, please do so for her and her son. Their names are Amber and Crosby. Even if you don't pray, please keep them in your thoughts! I will update when I get more information.

Thanks!

Oh no! I hope she can keep little Crosby baking a bit longer. It sucks so bad when babies are born early and have to be in the NICU with all kinds of tubes and wires. That God that in our day we have medical technology for premies to survive, but it's still far from ideal. At this stage every day helps, so I will pray for her to get to keep the little guy baking! KUP on how they are both doing.

Update!

This is from her Facebook 30 minutes ago:
"I had strong contractions all night last night and into about 8 am. They tried every medicine they had to stop and then threw a last ditch effort at me with a medicine that hardly ever works and about an hour before they were going to start prepping for a c section my contractions stopped! Praise god, 30 weeks is way to early for this little guy to come. If all goes well and the contractions stay off through the night, I will be able to go home in the morning with meds and bed rest I am sure. Thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts, please keep them coming because I don't think this baby needs to grace us with his presence yet."

She's not out of the woods yet (ha ha that's her last name Lol but she's doing better! Thanks for everyone who has been thinking of her! Please continue to pray!

Another update.

She has to stay in the hospital overnight again because the contractions are still bad. She's trying to stay strong, but it's hard! Please keep thinking of her and her family! Thank you Smile

How scary! I hope the contractions stop again. Hopefully she can hold off on that delivery for another few weeks at least. Will pray for her and her baby.

Just got an update! She is back home on bed rest!!!

Here is from her FB 10 minutes ago:
So glad to be home, I am even more thankful to have such an awesome Mom, Dad, brother and sisters that have helped us out with the kids. Thanks guys!!! I am sad that they are still not home with me, but I know with me being on bed rest and Phillip working all weekend this is the best. I can't wait to go spend time with them at my parents tomorrow though. Hopefully Baby C will stay put for at least another month!

I am so relieved that she got to go home and that her son is so far staying put. Thank you everyone who prayed for her and kept her in your thoughts. Smile

My friend went BACK in the hospital with more contractions again Sad However they got them to stop, and from the looks of it she is going to have to stay in there until her son is born. Please keep her in your T&Ps that he stays a few more weeks.

I'm so sorry that she's having so much trouble with the pregnancy. At this point every day is a gift for that baby's development and I hope and pray she gets a while longer before meeting her baby. Thanks for the update, I was wondering how she was doing.

So I keep forgetting to update this!

My friend, Amber has been on strict bedrest for a while. She was able to go home and hadn't been allowed to do much (she had her sister and SIL come help out with her boys). Anyway, on the 27th (next week!!!) she is going in for a c/s to have her baby boy. Hopefully everything will go well since he seems to be a stubborn little guy. She will be about 36 weeks when she has him. Thank you for everyone who kept her in their T&Ps Smile

An update:
My friend, Amber ended up having horrible contractions Wed night and they decided to take him the next day. She had her c/s yesterday and he came out at a little over 6 lbs. He was just under 37 weeks Smile He was in the NICU and on oxygen but they have since lowered it to 30% instead f 41% so he is doing a little better.
She is already in love with her new little boy.

Thank you everyone for T&Ps Smile I know she appreciated it as well.

So glad he stayed in a little longer! Hopefully he gets up to "normal" healthy newborn status ASAP! Smile
