    I posted a while back on this board about having been identified by a birthmother as the adoptive family for her baby.

    She was due in Nov and we had begun thinking about renting a pump in early fall to get my milk supply back up, I am still nursing our 2 year old.

    My husband was so excited. We both were.

    We just received word that she has been admitted to labor and delivery with an open cervix and that the baby's amniotic sac is bulging into the birth canal. She is only 21 weeks. They are not planning to try and stop her labor, last we heard, they think she is too far along already and that they would only be able to buy her a few days max.
