Making the Best of Bed Rest / Hi Everyone!
« Last post by allimarie80 on August 14, 2018 at 01:46 AM »
Hi everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself! I am 37, married and have 3 kids at home ages 17, 14 and 2. I’m currentlt 29 weeks 2 days along with baby number 4. I was put on bedrest at 20 weeks after having a cerclage and being on progesterone. Seems I have an incompetent cervix. Ugh! My 2 year old joined us by surprise at 33 weeks 2 days and spent 6 weeks in the nicu.

Bedrest has been really hard for me. I’m usually super active and I miss taking care of my household and kids. But we are so close to the end now. Looking forward to connecting with you all!

Hi, Mrsoblack.
I'm sorry you're facing this challenge. It sounds like you have had a very difficult pregnancy journey.  :( Are you on bedrest in the hospital?

How far along are you? I believe the waters bulge less when you have bed rest but i haven't had this experience myself. Hopefully all goes well for you

Hi everyone this is my first time ever posting, although I registered weeks ago. I currently see a high risk doctor and my regular obgyn doctor. I had an appt to check on the baby yesterday and the waterbag was pass my cerclage. I was Immediately instructed to go to the doctor which I was admitted right away. Unfortunately I’ve been in this type of situation several times and as a result currently have no living children. I’m not freaking out though but of course I still have concerns. I’m assuming the good part is the water isn’t actually broken, I’ve been placed on bedrest where I can cheat (thinking that if I do something it should be okay). My question is can the waterbag go back up with strict bedrest? Oh I forgot to mention I was contracting as well but I was thinking it was just Braxton Hicks, they were able to stop that as well.

I think that's why I'm nervous, especially when I went into true labour with my 30 weeker, the monitor wasn't picking up the contractions at all and I had to demand for three hours that I was in fact in labour... Hoping that doesn't happen again
