It has been 11 weeks that I gave birth to my baby boy. I still check in this site and I have to say this site helped me get through bedrest.

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.

Hi ladies,

Sorry for the late input... But I gave birth to a healthy 7lbs 9ounce baby boy at 39weeks after being on bedrest for 9 weeks then 2 weeks waiting for c-section. All is great just now healing from csection and enjoying my baby boy.

To all the ladies on this site... Please know there is a light at the end of the tunnel... At 27weeks and 2.1cm cervix my OB didn't think I would make it to 30weeks and there he was performing the c-section at 39weeks! The bedrest was worth every hour, day....and all the stress and feelings.

Hang in there ladies and I will come on this board to help those out when I get a chance. Baby does keep one busy.

Take care!!!

Hi,

I was on bedrest for 9weeks and I got back on my feet 2weeks prior to csection. It was a slow start.. Please take your time. Don't over do it! Yes, your body is weak and you have extra weight with you so it will be hard to adjust. Start with walks around the house for about 5-10mins and then rest... And gradually walk up to what feels best. And you will have a fear that walking will bring on baby but let me tell you it didn't for me but everyone is different but keep faith and stay strong! Good luck.

Hi all,

Late reply I know... It's been busy..4 sleeps and it's my csection and get to meet our bundle of joy this coming Friday. It's been a huge roller coaster for me and my husband with all the bed rest but it has been all worth it. 38w3d!! Thanking God for getting me here and also the support I have received here on this forum and chats.

We can do it ladies! It's possible... When the doc thought I would deliver at 30weeks!

I have my final US Wednesday.!

Take care all!

Pina, your almost there! Hang in there and yes... But just like you ...I will take anything at this point. I was 2cm 3 weeks ago... Getting back on my feet has been brutal... But I'm taking baby steps!

Keep posted and I will post back too! 8 days for me for csection if baby still keeps in.

Hi all

It's been a few days back on my feet but it's been a huge struggle. I'm extremely exhausted. My lower backs hurts pretty bad. I went to groceries Friday and that did me for the rest of the weekend. I'm helping with dinner and dishes and I feel like I have accomplished something. It's unbelievable how the little things matter. I have had 3-5huge contractions and wow... I got scared. But baby is still hanging on in the belly. But I'm so thankful I have made it this far. I truly believe in bedrest and following doctors orders. Also faith, positivity and determination when all seems impossible can be accomplished.

So ladies hang in there... Take care!

Hi,
Sorry I hear what your going through and the fustrations that go along with it. I see your having a lot of issues with your doc and all and I can't really comment as I'm not in the US as I'm in Canada and our system is a little different. The one thing I suggest is get a second opinion if you feel like you need more. You are he only person who can make that decision and be your advocate. Also some doctors don't believe in bedrest so that may be the reason. Either way follow what your heart says.

I will tell you that bedrest is emotionally, physically and mentally but I'm here today writing this with having my bedrest lifted at 36w5d yesterday as tomorrow is my 37th week... I been on bedrest for 9 weeks! Short cervix along with preterm labor. I would also let you know that I was on the progesterone from the first day of bedrest until I reached 34 weeks. I got the shots for my LOs one lungs at 29weeks. And that's all that I got in regards to meds.

I'm a believer of bedrest and wished more and more people talk about it and see it helps mommies to be through this difficult journey.

Take care and hang in there and please post any changes/updates.

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!!

Hi Angela and all,
I'm 36w3d today! Each day that passes by is a blessing. I still can't believe it I have made it this far. Now we are just counting down for the csection at 39weeks which will be September 4th and that's if our little boy is still cooking but I'm mentally ready for him coming early. We have our appointment on Wednesday. This weekend I experienced a huge contraction on Saturday night followed by what they call 'back labor' but I had my 1lt of water and switched position and I was good.
Ladies stay strong and stay positive and do what the doctors tell you. We can hang in there! Take care and count each day.
