    My SIL is due Sept 1st. She's just gone into labour, at 26 weeks. I feel terrible.... I don't know what to say, what to think, what to do for them. We live so far away that we can't physically be there, I just feel really lost and sad and helpless :-(

    Babies can and have survived being born at 26 weeks hun. They will need all your support once baby is here because it will be in hospital a long time and that's when you can rally round for them :hugs: you have to keep positive xx

    Tey can't stop it. Her waters went Saturday and she is going to have it tonight or tomorrow apparently. She's in London, close to the best hospitals, and I'm telling hubby it's all going to be fine. It's another baby wiggles so it has to be strong and a fighter, and the odds I've read are very much in its favour.

    I just wish there was something I could DO, rather than just thinking optimistically, but I can't :(

    Hey tigger sending you hugs. Hope the baby is okay. Like the girls say babies can survive at 26 weeks. It's amazing what the doctors can do nowadays. Just keep thinking positive thoughts huni xxx

    Aww I hope he's ok. I also know someone born that early and now a little toddler, so I do think these days it's more often a good outcome with everything they can do. I can only imagine how scary though x
