My water broke and I am in the hospital waiting delivery. This is the 4th time I have had PROM but thankfully we made it to term this time.

My blood pressure was normal with no protein in urine so the doctor isnt thinking preeclampsia. If I start having stroke like symptoms or my migraines get significantly worse, I am supposed to go to the ER.

Hi Heather,

Congratulations on making it to 37 weeks. Wishing you a safe delivery.

Thanks Heather. Things are getting better and I’m not feeling so down. My 28 weeker had a long 12 week NICU stay but has done very well since that. We are very thankful. Hopefully this little one stays put for a little longer

I am so sorry you are having these complications. I hope that your bedrest while difficult will keep your baby safe inside for many weeks/months to come? I have been on full bedrest this pregnancy for a few months and modified bedrest since then. I know how difficult it is. How many other children do you have?

Was your son who came at 28 weeks ok? It is understandable being emotionally strung out when both your pregnancies so far have been extremely difficult and so far beyond what most people around you probably experience. Don't be hard on yourself for struggling. I think most people in your position would struggle. I am glad you are doing better and hope that each day brings more hope to you.

I have been testing blood pressure at home and it has been normal. I have been dizzy but I am recovering from post concussion syndrome and my eyes being knocked out of proper alignment from an accident I had in 2016 so dizzy and seeing spots can be normal for me. I see the doctor this morning and will make sure to tell him.

Hi Everyone!
I’m just coming to terms with everything’s that’s happened over the past few days. On Monday, at 16 weeks, I went for a cervical scan at MFM. Unfortunately, it was discovered that I have a short cervix. Currently measuring 2.45 cm. I did have a LEEP procedure about two years ago, and a D&E last June, so I knew this was a possibility.
I was put on progesterone suppositories and bed rest for the foreseeable future. At this point, I will be monitored weekly for any changes in my cervix. My doctor doesn’t want to do a Cerclage because I have never experienced pre term labor before, and right now the risks outweigh the benefits.
I’m just feel really scared and really discouraged. I’m only 16 weeks, so I have at least 8 weeks before we even reach viability. There’s a lot of bed rest in my future. I’ve been super stressed and I’m just hoping with everything I have that this baby will keep cooking for as long as possible. I know I’ve read some really positive stories about women who went through the same thing, but there’s always a chance I won’t bring a baby home and that’s terrifying.
I’m trying my best to stay positive but it’s definitely hard!

Congratulations. Welcome to the world Baby Cara

Hi, Heather.

A headache that won't go away can be a sign of preeclampsia. How has your blood pressure been? Any sudden swelling in your feet, face or hands? Are you feeling dizzy or seeing spots? Please let me know.
