Ooh - I forgot to ask - are you on bedrest? At home/hospital?


I struggle with fear as well. What worked for me was focusing on a week at a time and reading books about caring for babies in the NICU. A great one is "Understanding the NICU" by Zaichin, Weiner, and Loren. There are so many helpful success stories in there from so many different challenges. And it helped me to think - if my daughter is born now, then she will have this happen.

You're so close to viability - stay strong!

Good morning Sally 41!

I think your positive attitude is just inspiring. When I had my emergency cerclage placed, I was not nearly as composed as you are.

Sounds like you're doing everything you can for your dear daughter and that you're getting great medical care. You'll be in my thoughts this week - I hope everything goes as you hope it will!


Glad you found someone willing to help take care of your family in such a special way. Keep us updated with how the cerclage holds! I'm rooting for you!


How is he doing? I know you have to proceed hour by hour, but are things at least going as expected?

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Re: Monday Roll Call for May 8, 2017

I'm 25 weeks and 4 days today. I've been on bedrest at home for 3 weeks and 4 days. I'm allowed 6 hours a week to move around, go out and be social/work. Maternal Fetal Medicine appointment on Thursday morning to measure cervix length. Doing a progesterone supplement everyday to see if it helps me stay more stable or regain length. I'm trying to stay positive and make plans for every day but I'm struggling with feeling so isolated during the day.

Other than that - I'm great this week!  ;D
