    when i went into early labour they gave me some steroids to help the lungs develop better i was also given some pethadine to try and relax in the hope that it might stop labour i was supposed to get antibiotics but didnt due to previous reactions and it was to help bubs fight infections as they have no immunity and prone to every bug id always ask what they are giving you my lil boy turned out ok his 7 months and learnt to crawl today

    when i had my 32 week scan, my baby was 3lbs 4oz. they probably have to repeat scan and see if the baby is striving otherwise she might deliver earlier because they don't like when babies are not gaining enough weight in utero.
