Making the Best of Bed Rest / Re: Monday Roll Call for October 8, 2018

Hi All,
I started bedrest mid-September at 18 weeks pregnant due to a dynamic cervix and it quickly became worse...September 26/27, I was admitted for an emergency cerclage and the procedure was the next morning after we ruled out any infection. I was 2-3 cm dialated with bulging membranes / water bag. The past few weeks I have spent time on bedrest learning more about the cervix and options and reading amazing success stories that have given me tremendous support/comfort. Thank you all for your inspiring stories...each day, each week are mini milestones. Tomorrow, I will be 21 weeks...praying and staying positive everyday. I am expecting twin girls and they are developing well. Best, Maria

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for October 8, 2018

Happy Monday!

I hope each of you will schedule something today to anticipate, and then tell us what you did. For example:

*Order a new book/movie/game that you have been wanting.
*Have a great friend bring you lunch or dinner from a favorite place.
*Ask someone to finally take care of that thing around the house that has been driving you crazy but you just haven't felt comfortable asking.

Remember that you are an important person doing an important job!  Don't hesitate to ask for the care and attention you need.   :)

If you're reading this, I hope you will post a message here. Something as simple as telling us how far along you are and how long you've been on bed rest helps other moms to know they aren't alone in this. Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Happy Monday! And welcome to another month! So here's something new... I have been hosting the Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern on Tuesdays for years and years. Starting this week, I'm changing it to Thursdays at 2 pm. Will that work better for you all? Who can make it this week?

Let us know how you're doing... AND let us know what you're eating. What kinds of meals and snacks are easiest to prepare (or not have to prepare) on bed rest or limited activity?

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Hi! I have a similar story. At 22 weeks I measured 2.8. Now at 23 weeks I’m measuring 2.0-2.2. Just started progesterone vaginally last night.  I’m hoping at my 2 week Follow-up I have maintained my measurements or have better measurements.  I’m on activity restriction and off of work. Are you still working?

Hi, maddoxsmommy7.

I've been thinking about you these last few days. How are you feeling? Did you and your OB talk about getting the steroid shots and when it would be a good time to do that, if so?

Hi, I’m Alissa. I’m 23+4 weeks pregnant with my first pregnancy. I just got out on bedrest last week after my cervix shortened and I started contracting. It’s scary and nerve wracking and I’m in the process of switching to a hospital with level 4 NICU in case we don’t make it to 32 weeks. Hanging in there.

Hello! 33.4 today! Just trying to get through another day.  I will miss the live chat today as it is at the same time as my doctor's appointment.  The past 2 weeks I have been admitted to the hospital at my appointments so hoping for a better outcome today! Also hoping to get permission to have my baby shower on Saturday with a location change to my house! Hope everyone is doing well.
