What's Your Story? Tell us. / Pregnancy after Bedrest
« on: April 21, 2020 at 03:45 PM »
hi!!! Looking for advice:
First born, 32 weeks from PPROM
2nd born: progesterone, pre term labor (nifedipine, bedrest x 2 months) born at 38+ weeks
Unfortunately I feel that I don't have a super supportive OB, who just keeps saying I will have the same problem with a 3rd. Any success stories of actually having a normal birth with 2 pre term labor experiences?
Thank you!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Positive Bed Rest Story....

Hi all. Just wanted to share my story and bring you all some positivity during this difficult time! My first son was born at 33 weeks due to PROM. My second pregnancy, I was placed on Progesterone injection from week 16. I was found to have a shortened cervix at 29 weeks and placed on Modified Bed Rest. At 32 weeks, I was hospitalized for pre term labor. I stayed for 1 week in the hospital, placed on around the clock Procardia, and went home on pretty strict bed rest.
I was able to get to 37 weeks, stopped all my meds, and was able to move! I even went back to work on the following Monday.
I delivered by baby boy this past weekend, June 6th, at 38 weeks and 3 days. After only 2.5 hours of contractions, no time for an epidural, he arrived after 2 pushes.
Any my dream came true, we were both discharged from the hospital at the same time!!
So hang in there, but you all can do it!!

Take Care!!
