Pregnancy Complications / Re: Update

Congratulations, im so glad to hear she is doing well.  I'm glad she at least held off from coming right away after water broke so it gave time for steroids to take effect.  :)
I will continue my prayers for her, hoping you can have some skin to skin today, most importantly praying for a short and uneventful nicu stay.

Pregnancy Complications / Update

Update:

I had my baby girl on 9-7-17 at 5:47am She wasn't being good on the monitor so they did an ultrasound and said she wasn't being active enough. So they did an emergency c section. She weights 4lbs 4.7oz and 17 3/4 in length. She is perfect in everyway. She is doing pretty good! Needs some help breathing. Hoping she can start with breast milk today. And I will hopefully get to hold her!  Thank you for all the continued prayers :)

I have read a large amount of medical studies and success stories and I agree your best intervention as you said is the pessary, vaginal progesterone and possibly progesterone injections as well, procardia if having contractions, along with bed rest and complete pelvic rest. I'm so glad you are in California as they will definitely have specialists and hospitals very educated in cases like yours. :)

Hello. I am not in your position as I'm only carrying one child however I want you to get some info. This is an amazing site but not always very active depending on topic, there are some very active twin IC groups on baby center.com and those members can also refer you to private active Facebook groups for twins and IC and That will lead you to many more resources and and Help you access a larger population of people going through the same thing.
I wish you a lot of luck and lots of baby dust and prayers coming your way. Keep us updated

I am currently 22 weeks and my cervix went down to .5 cm. I am currently looking for a doctor in central or Southern California that performs a pessary procedure. Cerclages are not recommended for twins, and a pessary shows very promising results. Please, any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Re: Monday Roll Call for September 4, 2017

Babyb your doing awesome we are almost to the finish line.

Hi Angela. When on bedrest I would have family make bed in the morning so I could feel like I had a morning routine, nothing like laying on a nice neat made up bed, and I would lay on top of the covers with a light shall blanket to cover my legs and feet  when needed.

I like title #2 for the book. Congratulations on that!!

Any updates? We'd love to hear from you!

Way to go, BabyB#2! So close to the finish line!

A question for all of you ladies: When you are in bed, are you above the covers or below the covers during the day? I ask because I'm working on a children's book about bedrest with another bedrest mama.

Also, which title do you like better:
1) Stuck In Bed: The pregnancy bed rest book for kids … with tips for moms.
2) Stuck In Bed: Helping kids understand pregnancy bed rest  … with tips for moms.
3) Stuck In Bed: The pregnancy bed rest picture book for kids … and moms.

Thank you!
