Hey all!

I have officially survived my 1st week on bed rest and as of today we 3 on home bed rest ( me +2 boys) are 29w+3days pregnant.

The start to week 2 has been an emotional one.  I broke down in a full on tears, boogers and drool meltdown during a conversation with my 6yo's teacher this morning.  VERY embarrassing, and it made her so uncomfortable... She's clearly not too comfy with pregnancy hormones.  If she'd stop trying to force my kid into a (figurative) box, then she'd be free and clear from my meltdowns...just saying...

Here's hoping for a tear free, positive minded rest of week two!

Upwards and onwards to our first keep 'em cookin goal and next growth and cervix length follow up appointment @ wk 30!

Have a great week ladies!


Oh dear.  I can imagine how much you wanted to go home.  Stay strong!  You are doing an amazing job cooking that little baby!  Every day counts for your baby.  You have the positivity in you, i have seen it, it has touched me, and I assure you that your positive attitude helps your baby grow stronger every day.

Big hugs,

Thanks, Christine.

Our situations sound similar.  I'm thinking I will obstain until my next appointment then get more specific with my doctor.  I also agree that there is a real problem with health care professionals who do not differentiate between intercourse and orgasms...that may be worth addressing should it come up...I'm glad to know we share similar thoughts on that.

Your support and kind words of support are so very appreciated.

Yvonne :)

Thanks Helen,

My doctor was not so specific, so I appreciate you sharing your experiences.  Thanks a lot for the well wishes and take care.

Hi All!

I'm so happy to have found this forum!  Here's my story!

I am a very proud mommy of 2 little girls, age 3 & 6 and we are expecting identical twin boys - 40 due date is April 3rd, 2011:). We found out we had 2 buns in the oven when we were 19 weeks pregnant- it was a HUGE shocker!  At our 24 week appointment the boys looks strong, and so did my cervix...alas...we had our 28 week appointment yesterday.  Our boys are amazing, strong and cervix on the other hand has shortened and the opening is shaped like a "y"(is that the same as funneling?) So here I am, at 28 weeks on full bedrest.  I've been told, I am only to rise from 90% to 100% horizontal for bathroom breaks, to get a drink for myself or to get myself something to eat.  This is a very challenging concept to me...but honestly, anything for these boys  :)

I do have a few questions I must admit...for instance - my doctor said no sex - does that mean no orgasms?  Or just no penetration/ semen?i like to ask frank and honest questions so i hope that's ok with all you mommies sharing this situation with me.

I am looking forward to hearing your stories, advice and tips for maintaining sanity .

My mantra is gravity is the enemy - I have assumed the anti-gravity position.

Way to go all you champion mommies!  Every one of you amaze me :)
