What's Your Story? Tell us. / He turns 4 weeks today!
« on: October 02, 2015 at 05:53 AM »
Hi Ladies,

Sorry for the late info but it's been a busy 4week. I had my son at 39weeks via csection after being on bedrest for 9weeks. He weighed 7lbs9ounces and is doing very well. I'm still healing from my csection and it's been hard getting back into my 'normal' feeling of my body but I have to say every single hour, day week and month was worth it.

Bedrest was an emotional, physical and mentally exhausting journey so I know what you are all going through. Nobody can explain what it's like until they have done it themselves. There are so many emotions and your brain just doesn't stop with the what ifs and what's that feeling. So I want all you ladies on here currently on bedrest to know there is hope and there is a light at the end of the tunnel as cliche as that sounds but it's true.

To all here ... Hang in there. Have faith and stay strong.

What's Your Story? Tell us. / Lifted my 'bedrest' at 36w5d!

Hi ladies,
Today at my OBs appointment he has given me the green light to resume my daily activities. He wants me to get moving to prevent blood clots and prepare me to get some function back in my body as my csection is scheduled for September 4th. He says blood clots are a concern in csections and by me being on bedrest for 70days he wants me to get some movement going. This pretty much scares me as I read too much and see people have their baby within a day or 2 after being taken off bedrest. Today I walked to the washroom at the hospital after my appointment and then the front desk area and let me tell you I felt like I had walked for hours!! Lower back killed and felt pressure which he mentioned it will be 'normal'. He wants baby steps and as soon as I start hurting I must lay down and relax. I realize that this is a huge step and as much as I have been waiting for the green light I'm scared as heck. But I know my baby has been staying put up to now. I'm not allowed to drive at all so I'm still stuck at home unless someone picks me up or hubby is taking me out. And I live outside the city so it's not like I can hop on a city bus or anything but I will be keeping busy in organizing the baby's room! This fills my heart with pure joy!

To all the ladies on here... Have faith and stay positive! I thank God, bedrest and help from my wonderful husband and family that I have made it this far. My advice to you all is that it can be done when you think you will never make it that far. Keep busy stay stay strong. I pray that all you ladies get the green light. But either way one day in there belly is one less day in NiCU and one day closer to meeting your LO's.

I'm starting a different journey here so I will report! Please take care everyone and keep faith and positivity!!

Anybody have any suggestions on what to do with restless legs? I feel like I ran and it's the next day when the calves are fatigued. But odviously it's just from laying down. I don't know what to do.. I have done some stretches and it's not helping. Also my sciatic nerve is acting up pretty bad and it's not like I can get a massage for it... I'm not having a good day. Anybody got suggestions? Please help?

Hi all,

I found this place and hope to keep active to keep boredom down. Last Thursday was the day I got the news that I was on immediate bed rest due to my cervix being 2.1 so hard news to take and attires as time I felt like I did something wrong. I have accepted that I didn't do anything wrong. I just need to concentrate on keeping busy on the lazy boy and my bed. I'm only allowed to use the bathroom and get my food from the fridge everything else is out of the allowance. I have been given promethium nightly and wonder if anybody has used this? Results? I'm so scared and my mind just races the whole time.... I just pray this baby stays in as long as possible. I have my next appointment on Wednesday so I'm praying all will go well.
