Thank you so much for your kind words and suggestions!

I am so sorry for your loss too. It is such a heartbreaking thing to go through that only the ones that have been through it can understand. I will definitely look into all the games/puzzles and crafts that you listed. I love to read, watch tv and color so I will do that! I also love mysteries so binge worthy TV is wonderful. The doctor just told me that I will be delivering at 36 weeks as long as we are all healthy until then, not 37 weeks as planned since I have preeclampsia.

Bless you for taking the time to start this and let moms know that they are not alone!

Hi,

I was pregnant with triplet girls two years ago but delivered at 26 weeks. Two of the girls were sharing everything so through the whole pregnancy we were worried about A & B (AnnMarie & Autumn) but Amelia (C) was fine in a sack by herself. We would go to the specialist twice a week and everything was going alright until one day they couldn't find Autumn's heartbeat. We ended up deciding to deliver them all when they told us that Autumn had gone to heaven. 4 days later because of some crazy fungus that Amelia contracted, she passed away as well. AnnMarie was kept at Cooks NICU for 4 months which was the hardest thing my husband and I have ever had to go through. Having two funerals for my two babies was more than I thought I could EVER get through. BUT AnnMarie has thrived and is now 2 1/2 years old and doing amazing. Now I am on bed rest for the 2nd day with my twins (boy and girl this time) and I really don't know how to deal with it. Just being back in the hospital gives me anxiety thinking about the babies Ive lost before. This pregnancy has been COMPLETELY different though. They aren't sharing anything and have been growing and developing great so far. I have just had high blood pressure so they want to keep me on bed rest until my scheduled c-section on the 19th. What does that mean? What am I supposed to do with myself? We are blessed to have family and my mom is at home taking care of Annie and our home but it is so hard not being able to see her because of Covid restrictions. How is everyone else dealing with being on bed rest? I am so used to taking care of everything (like most of us are) so how do they expect me to just sit, rest and not worry myself sick?

Any suggestions would be great!

Hi,

I don't know if you are still on here or checking this but I just found out about this and wanted to see how you were doing. This is my second day on bed rest and my husband works from home too and we have a 2 yr old girl. He is able to come up here any time but I feel bad when he does because I know he cant rest here. I am 35 weeks pregnant with twins. They are doing great but my blood pressure has been really high. I am supposed to stay here until my scheduled C-section on January 19th. I broke down yesterday when they told me that. My daughter, AnnMarie, is a triplet but we lost her two sisters when they were born 2 years ago. AnnMarie had to be in the NICU for 4 months because I delivered at 26 weeks. She is doing AMAZING now but needless to say I haven't been away from her more than 2 nights (now) so I do not know how I am supposed to do this.

Hope all is well with you.

Amber
