I know I don't post a ton but I'm around. :-) can I ask for prayers and positive thoughts for baby and myself?

As posted in my intro I deliver my babies early, always 32 weeks, but this little man has been giving me trouble from the start. Hyperemesis with severe weight loss and frequent hospital trips, placenta previa (now moved thank goodness) and the mess going on now.

I have had kidney stones in the past and surgery to remove them. Nothing further was done. A few weeks ago I used the restroom and my urine was bright red with blood. I went in to l&d to find my right kidney is severely swollen and "at risk" my left was moderately swollen. They also found several stones that passed on their own. Fast forward to the last bit- I again had lots of blood in my urine and extreme pain so back to the hospital I go. I have a large stone that will not be able to pass on its own but they won't do anything until delivery. The worst part is my body is reacting to the severe pain with contractions. I've already started dialating and I'm only 24w2d. I'm on meds now for the pain which scares me, but I'm having to trust the dr on this and procardia every four hours for contractions. I'm terrified. It's way too early and I'm so afraid I'll deliver earlier than my normal 32. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that we can at least hold Everett in until 28 minimum so he has good odds! And for my body to not have any further issues.

Re: Prayers

I can imagine it's terrifying. Just try to keep calm (easier for me to say since its not happening to me) but really, don't stress yourself. I'll be praying for you and your baby boy.
