Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Road trip
« Last post by rhi1996 on August 08, 2018 at 12:15 AM »
The last thread was inactive so I'm starting a new one...
So I see my other three kids once a month for an hour and a half. They live 450kms away from me (7 hour bus ride) I'm wondering because of how early I delivered last time (30+5) am I going to be able to keep up with the 7hour trips up and 7hour trips back every month to see my kids? I don't want them to miss out...
Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Irritable uterus
« Last post by rhi1996 on August 08, 2018 at 12:12 AM »
So the nerves are kicking in. Currently 20 weeks 5 days and constantly crampy. It was put down to irritable uterus. Anyone in this situation? Did it cause preterm labour? My last bub was born at 30+5 nearly 2 years ago

I know that anxiety. I spent three days in hospital just recently getting extra tests done because of unusual cramping which they put down to irritable uterus and everytime I sneeze and wee myself I worry it's my waters. My cervix is holding at 3.6 cm but I know how quickly it can change.

I was placed on vaginal suppositories of progesterone about a week ago...I have an appointment for a sonogram coming up but i wanted to know how long until it takes to work. I'm a day shy of 23 weeks and very nervous about having a 1.4cm cervix with funneling. I was also placed on bedrest...ugh Ijust want this to work!
This is great news! Thank you
Hi, I am a first time mom...I've had a difficult pregnancy- hemmhorraged 3 times, marginal placenta previa but since has been resolved. Baby was doing great and growing! Then, at 22 weeks they discovered my cervix which was almost 5cm at 14 weeks went down to 1.4cm!! And funneling- they put me on bedrest right away and just like that my life feels so different. I was a full time nurse working overnight at a busy hospital and now I'm bedridden. I feel scared, hopeful, bored, achy and rested all at once. I'm looking for someone out there with the same situation who is looking to chat and help support one another. Let me know!

I am 22 weeks pregnant and just put on bedrest for a short cervix with cervix was 1.4cm at longest. So now I'm home, on bedrest with progesterone suppositories. I have also read a lot of success stories and am keeping the faith. I hope we both make it past 33 weeks to keep our babies cooking!!
