Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Procardia side effects
« on: September 17, 2016 at 06:01 PM »
I've been in hospital bedrest since 22.5 weeks due to cervical insufficiency. Had a cerclage done at 13 weeks but started funneling to the stitch at 22.5 weeks. While in hospital, i have been taking procardia10mg every 6hours with no side effect. Today however (i am now 29.2 weeks), i started to feel dizzy like room is spinning and vomited my breakfast. Doc ordered to discontinue procardia until further notice. BP has always been low 100's over 60'-70's with procardia. I dont know if procardia is whats making me feel this way or what...i cant believe after taking it for almost 7 weeks i just now started this symptoms. Any idea????

Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Baby positioning

Im 25 weeks today. I had an ultrasound 3 weeks ago which showed funneling and shortened cervix even after cerclage. So 3 weeks ago baby's head was up. Now ultrasound shows baby's head is down. Im concern if that should be something i need to worry about. Docs are not wanting to do intravaginal u/s so not to disturb the cervix. Today ultrasound was only to check well being of baby. I have no idea if i am still funneling or how my cervix is in hospital bed rest and not able to discuss results with docs til tmrw.
