Making the Best of Bed Rest / Re: Monday Roll Call for August 3, 2020

Hi, Adognurse! How have theses last couple of days been?

I have a few more messages for you from our Facebook groups:

From Parijat Deshpande, High-Risk Pregnancy Specialist:
I interviewed an amazing women about her PPROM success story in my podcast. Hope this helps! http://bit.ly/dmep116

From Nikki:
I was pregnant with twins and at 17 weeks and 5 days I gave birth to baby girl A but after they put a cerclage in and kept my other daughter cooking all the way to 34 weeks. It's such a tough situation that you are in but every day that goes by is better and better. Just take it day by day and know that you are not alone. Wishing you positive vibes.

Hi, Adognurse! I posted about your situation on our Facebook page and have a few responses from there for you! People are often slow to respond on the Forum, so please do join our pubic and private Facebook groups as well:

Messages from our members on Facebook:

From Ashley: First baby I was on strict bedrest at 25 weeks to 35 weeks with .5 cm of my cervix left and we made it to 38 weeks. Second baby I had a cerclage placed at 15 weeks and we made it to 37 weeks with no bed rest. Please keep the hope. Your body is capable of amazing things 💜 there are many success stories on this forum. Cling to the positive. That’s what helped me get through it.

From Samantha:
I was on hospital bed rest 22-28 weeks. Daughter spent 69 days in the nicu and is 7 now 💜

Hi,

I’m sorry you’re going through all this. My situation is not exactly like yours but I too underwent emergency cerclage surgery at 21+5 and have been on bedrest since then. I recall the perinatologist giving me the risks and benefits of a cerclage and it was horrifying to hear all the different complications from the cerclage surgery. As a mom, it is terrifying when you want your baby to be safe but your body is not cooperating. You feel helpless, hopeless and even angry at times. I have been on bedrest at home mostly but had to be hospitalized twice since then, each time wondering if I could ever reach the point where I can see my baby earth side safe and sound. I am currently 30+1 and still not at the safest time point yet but the days did eventually pass and with the help and support of the doctors, we will keep going as long as we can. Your situation is more stressful but trust in those around you trying to help you and your little one the best they can. Bedrest is a depressing experience but it’s one of the best things you can do right now for your baby so do your best to find ways to keep your mind sane. Good luck and I wish you the best on your journey.

Welcome to our newest members! I have seen many ladies join the group these past few days but not post. We'd love to get to know you!

So ladies, let us know how many weeks along you are. What are you looking forward to this week?

I hope we'll have a great turnout Thursday for the Live Chat. Set an alarm so you don't miss it! ALSO: Would anyone like to have this week's Live Chat on Zoom?

Keep 'em cookin'!

Welcome to August!

A big welcome to our many new ladies who joined last week! And to our oldies but goodies, congrats for still being here! EVERY day counts! So give us an update: How many weeks are you? Why are you on bed rest? Any appointments this week?

I hope you all can join us Thursday for the Live Chat. It's always fun, but even more so when we have several moms on. QUESTION: Would anyone like to do the Live Chat on Zoom instead? In the meantime...

Keep those babies cookin'!

Hi there! It's almost August and here you are! Your dedication to your babies is wonderful.

Just for fun, share with us which TV shows you are watching. I'm trying to limit how much I watch at night. It's so easy to get sucked in, and I feel like I HAVE to let my brain zone out after a packed day with working at home and the kids at home for the summer ... and for the last 4 months!

It's a stressful time for you, so you need to give your brains a break, too. Anyone have any recommendations for a comedy, or something just silly? Any dramas to take your mind off things? I've been catching up on Ozark and started the new Unsolved Mysteries.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas! Hope to see you on the Live Chat Thursday!

How much patience you have, for instance."

Ain't that the truth! And sometimes even before they are born!

Let us know how many weeks along you are, and tell us how you're feeling. Do you have any appointments this week or any news to report from last week? Be sure to set an alarm for Thursday's Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Looking forward to hearing from my ladies!

My son will celebrate his 12th birthday this week. The time has gone way too fast! And that means KeepEmCookin.com is closing in on 12 years old, too! My 15 weeks on bed rest with him is what inspired me to create this group.   ;D

You have to celebrate the small stuff when you are on bed rest. What will you celebrate this week?

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!
