Making the Best of Bed Rest / My Bedrest Baby!!!
« on: December 17, 2013 at 05:12 PM »
Hello Ladies!!  My bedrest baby has arrived!  It's been one crazy week!!  Last Tuesday night at 11:10 my water broke!  I was in bed about to go to sleep and BAM!  We got dressed and headed to the hospital which is an hour away.  I started having contractions on the way.  Once there and checked in they started prepping me for delivery.  The nurse checked me and I was dilated 2cm.  I made sure she knew I wanted an epi...she told me the longer I could hold out the better so I did!  I lasted until 5am!  She checked me and I was a 7, so she got the nurse anesthetist and got the epi.  It only worked on my right side so they had to have him come back and give me more so it would work on the other side.  It DID!! The doctor came in I think around 9 to check me and I was a 10.  I tried pushing a few times  but we stopped because she said he was facing up and so they placed me on my side in a runners type position for 30 minutes each side to get him to turn. It WORKED!  I pushed for approx. 1 1/2 hours and he was born at 11:24am! He weighed 7lbs 14 1/2 oz; measured 20 3/4 inches long!!  The cerclage, progesterone shots, and bedrest worked!!  So happy to have found this forum and glad I get to share my success with all of you!!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Cerclage Removal
« on: December 03, 2013 at 07:45 PM »
Hi ladies!!  Had my appt this afternoon to have my cerclage removed!  I was so nervous!  It was extremely uncomfortable, but I survived!  I actually still have a piece of the stitch in because it did not come out, but my doctor didn't seem too concerned about it.  She said it will probly come out on its own.  Anyways, it's just a waiting game now!!  Let the countdown begin!!

If I don't go into labor...I have my next checkup next Friday!

I had just had a regular checkup today!  I'll be 35w tomorrow and I'm officially off bedrest!  I'm still going to take it easy and rest when needed, but I can start helping get things done!  I still cannot believe 13weeks have passed!  Next week I get my last growth scan and then get my cerclage out on Dec. 3rd!!

My name is Jodi and I am a fitness instructor and personal trainer!  I am currently 25 weeks and had a cerclage put in 3 weeks ago at 22 weeks.  I am on bed rest and will be for the remainder of my pregnancy.  I get weekly progesterone shots and go for weekly checkups now.
Last year, I had preterm labor at 21 weeks 5 days.  I had never been pregnant before and didn't realize I was in actual labor.  I went to the hospital at 3am on Friday, November 23rd after going to the bathroom and seeing some blood.  My water broke shortly after getting into L&D and I was dilated to a 4.  I had Sky at 9:45 and he passed away an hour later.  It was the hardest thing I've ever gone through.
