What's Your Story? Tell us. / 31 weeks and the other shoe dropped!
« on: April 19, 2009 at 08:16 AM »
This is my 2nd pregnancy, and I was on modified bed rest for most of both.  With my daughter I bled the whole time, and was always rushing into get an ultrasound to check her.  I got I think 7 or 8 with her, but she came out fine by emergency c section after I was induced at 37 weeks. After a day of labor her heart rate dropped to 60 and we were rushed to surgery. We thought we would not have any more, because the pregnancy was so physicaly and emotionaly hard for me, but over the last 2 years both my husband and I were more and more drawn to the feeling there was another child for us.  We finally went to get checked out, got the ok to try to get pregnant and literally 2 weeks later conceived! I bled again in the beginning, and was on modified bed rest again, then the bleeding stopped at about 6 months and all was well. Then this Friday, at 31 weeks, 4 days I passed my mucus plug, then some blood clots, and had contractions all afternoon.  I was told by the Dr I was now on strict bed rest and if the contractions continued, got worse or closer together go to L&D, which we did about 10:30 that night after 4 contractions in an hour. We were monitored for a few hours and they took a test, cannot remember name, to see if I would deliver in the next 2 weeks , which was negative.  They examined me and said my cervix was soft and slightly open, but that can be common in a second pregnancy. We were set loose about 1am and headed home to a restless night.  I has Braxton Hicks most of the day Saturday as well, but they stayed irratic. I see my Dr Monday for my regular appointment and to see if I will stay on strict rest.  My husband is a truck driver and is gone at work days at a time, and I don't know what we will do if I am kept on strict rest. I guess we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
