In this episode, my friend Kara shares her 31 week preterm birth story and her term delivery of her 2nd baby!
Kara’s Birth Stories:
My first baby, Quinn, turned my world upside down. His birth came as quite the surprise when my water broke one night at 30 weeks and 6 days while cooking dinner. After getting to the hospital and running a series of tests it was confirmed that my water had broken and I was transferred to a different hospital with a level 4 NICU. I was placed on a series of different medications to help his lungs develop and stop my contractions for 2 days. After I was “steroid complete” I was taken off the medication to stop my contractions and Quinn was born a few hours later. He was 3 lbs 8oz of scrawny cuteness. He spent 28 days in the NICU and was what they called a “feeder and grower” without any complications during his stay other than the typical preemie breathing and heart rate issues. Quinn is now a healthy, funny, sweet almost 4 year old who loves trucks and playing outside.
