Hi, Jessica! How did the removal go? You could meet your sweetie any day now! Or it could be another 3 weeks... I've seen both happen!  ;) Keep me posted on how you're doing. Big hugs!

What's Your Story? Tell us. / Re: 20 weeks, 1 cm cervix, twins *Update

Hello, Desperatemom - I too have mono/di twins cooking and going through the same thing. I live in Canada and for me, I've just been prescribed progesterone suppositories and bed rest (where I can get up and go to the bathroom and shower etc). I was on hospital bed rest till 29w, but now I'm home, hoping I'll be here for the long haul. I don't have too much to update you on, but just trying to do the minimal activity, sit up reclined and lay whenever I get a chance. Hang in there, I do believe a positive outlook and feet up bed rest is key!

Happy Monday!!! 37 weeks today. Cerclage removal scheduled for Friday :)

After having an emergent rescue cerclage placed at 21 weeks with bulging membranes, ddilation and 10 weeks strict bedrest and 6 weeks of modified bedrest I cannot wait to just take a stroll around the neighborhood with our whole family. Something so simple that can be taken for granted but after this it seems so special.

Feel so blessed and can't wait to meet our miracle.

I thought I'd do a fun question this week, to help keep you focused on the end goal: What do you dream of doing with your baby someday? Is there a certain activity? A hobby you'd like to share? A place to go? Tell us!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Congratulations Jensine!!!!! I'm so glad she made it to 38 weeks even though she is still deciding to come a little early. Girls just have their own plans in mind on making their appearances. Please post an update once your princess is here. Thoughts and prayers with you

Good afternoon ladies!

I'm going to miss the roll call tomorrow--we have a scheduled C-section at 5:30AM!  Baby Girl #2 is coming a little early...38w1d due to early dilation and low fluids.  But I'm grateful we made it this far!  Wishing you all a healthy, safe and full term pregnancy! :)  This forum saved my sanity during bedrest with #1 and I hope it's helping each of you, too.  Sending prayers for each of you!

Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Hoping
« Last post by Biscuitsmom2b on September 09, 2017 at 10:26 PM »
Hi everyone
Currently 30 weeks 5 days. On hospital bed rest for almost 5 weeks now. I've gotten into a routine and it's been ok. However, I've been sent to L&D twice in two weeks. I've had a total of about 45 hours of contractions. Thursday was the worst yet as I was crying through the contractions by the 20th hour just praying for some sort of help. Nothing seems to stop them but they make barely no change to my cervix. It's emotionally and physically draining. Then out of nowhere they go away. I'm so scared and confused. Has anyone had contractions that do this? How long was it till the real deal? I go home at 32 weeks and I know this is strange but I am so scared to go home. What if I miss the signs of labour??? My mind is racing. I just wish things were different. Safer.
