Hello, vtmama.

Did you decide to get the cerclage? How have you been? Is your cervix length holding steady?

I just came across this blog post from just a few days ago. I think it will offer you some hope.

The author wrote:
"Sebastian was born at 29 weeks 5 days, weighing at 3 lbs 5.6 oz. He is a PROM survivor. My water broke at 16 weeks on May 02, 2018. He was born 08/04/2018."

You must be so emotionally and physically drained with all you've been through the past few weeks and now the PPROM.  :( What are the docs telling you so far? Any signs of infection? I'm guessing they're giving you antibiotics to avoid that. How are your fluid levels? The amniotic fluid continues to be produced, so hopefully they will stay steady. Thank goodness your cervix is closed!

How are you keeping busy in the hospital? Are you having visitors? I hope you're staying social, even if you don't feel like it. Being around other people will help to keep you positive and motivated.

Let us know how you are doing. Positive thoughts coming your way!

Hi! I am sorry you have had such a tough time with your pregnancies. I'm guessing your OB will be keeping a close eye on you, which is certainly an advantage this time around. You're also doing a great job staying in tune with what you're feeling and getting checked out. Keep it up! In this group, I have seen several women go on for another month or more with dilating to 4 cm. Sending you positive thoughts that you'll get there, too!

Hello, ladies!

How is everyone doing? How many weeks are you? Any surprise trips to L&D last week? And who is holding smooth and steady?

I just wanted to say a quick word about preeclampsia today. I never expected that I would get it, and no one ever does. It can come on quickly, so I want to encourage all of you to keep an eye out for its symptoms: high blood pressure, protein in the urine, hyperactive reflexes, pain under the right rib, sudden swelling, sudden weight gain, nausea or vomiting, shoulder pain, vision changes (spots, blurriness), headache, lower back pain, racing pulse, confusion, shortness of breath or chest pain. You can learn more at www.Preeclampsia.org. If you have ANY of these symptoms, report them to your doctor right away.

Looking forward to your updates!

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hi, Quapamama.
Big congrats on 31 weeks and counting! I took my daughter for a walk around the neighborhood the day I got home. I couldn't wait to get outside. Maybe you'll get some cute fall photos with the changing leaves with her when she arrives (in several weeks, of course!).

Positive thoughts coming your way!

Hi, ladies!
I thought I'd do a fun question this week, to help keep you focused on the end goal: What do you dream of doing with your baby someday? Is there a certain activity? A hobby you'd like to share? A place to go? Tell us!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 4, 2018

So it's actually a Tuesday Roll Call. Yesterday was Labor Day and I spent most of the day offline. How about that? And now the kids are back to school. Anyone else have kids heading off to school today?

I've noticed that our turnout for the Tuesday live chats has been low. Is there something about the chats that we could do differently? Would you like to receive a reminder e-mail? Just let me know...

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for August 27
« on: August 27, 2018 at 11:49 AM »
Today I want to share some wisdom from my late grandma:

Don't meet trouble halfway.
Let it travel the full distance,
because something usually happens to it before it arrives.


Anxiety and worry seem to be such a common part of bedrest. There's just too much time to think about all that might go wrong! Try not to get trapped in that kind of thinking. Instead, feel confident knowing that you are doing all you can to keep your baby (or babies) safe.

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hello, you wonderful mamas! I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's updates!

I have a favor to ask. We have had MANY new members join this past week. I love it! Would you be able to take time today to reach out to at least two other bedrest mamas?

Also, I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific. We have the best time when we can get a few of you on together. Please let me know if you can attend. Be sure to set an alarm on your phone so that you don't miss it. http://www.keepemcookin.com/live-chat/

Keep 'em cookin'!
