Hi Mamas!  I'm still here.  We made it to 29 weeks yesterday!  Woot woot!  Everything seems to be going well so far.  I had a bad night sleep last night and feel a little crummy this morning.  I think it's mostly in my head - I'm scared to death that my water is going to break any time and our baby will be stuck in the NICU.  It's just one of my many "bedrest" nightmares!  Otherwise things are going well.  I have my next doctor appt next Tues so I'm anxious to see how things are going inside.  Hang in there mamas - we've made it another week!   :D

Hi Ladies,

I'm still here in the hospital!  I am now 28 weeks :) We had some ups and downs this weekend: I continue to have contractions at night as well as passing a very thick yellow brownish discharge twice. I feel that the inevitable is near. I am going to ask what is the plan and how much longer am I going to be on the procardia before they determine i need to go ahead in labor naturally. I am trying to prepare myself for the birth of our daughter being born so soon. Do any of you have any suggestions for us as we embrace this miracle that is arriving soon?

Keep up the good work Mamas,

Kim

Baby G and I are here at week 25! Going for an u/s this coming Monday for cervix length so that should give us a good indication of how things are going.

Woke up to some lovely kicks and bumps from Baby G :) Always a great way to start the day!

Hello Mamas,

Health tip: If fear about bedrest or any pregnancy challenges come up, when you respond with ease, trust and proper breathing (breathe in - abdomen out, breathe out - abdomen in), you will know how to best address the issue.

I support you all in your quest for a healthy and happy pregnancy!

Love,
Nicole

Still cooking! I'm 30+3 today! Had my obgyn AND ultrasound appt last Thursday. The scan showed a super cute baby ;) measuring almost 3 lbs. He was in the 30th percentile three weeks ago, but is now in the 15th percentile. They are concerned that his growth is being restricted. I have another scan next week. My obgyn wasn't concerned too much, and she expects a big growth spurt by then. I do too, since I'm eating EVERYthing I see. :P

No spikes in blood pressure, lots of kick and bumps and rolls! 8) Good luck ladies!

23wk4day and counting until I reach the viable 24wk mark this Friday!  I am looking forward to my next appointment on Thursday, it will mark a long two weeks since I have had my cervix checked (I was going for weekly appointment up until now).  Been feeling my little guy moving around a lot, and my at home doppler brings me extra reassurance when I hear his little ticker beat away at 147bpm.  This morning however, he seems to be moving around a little too low for comfort.  Is that my cervix and stitch he is kicking at?  Thursday seems so far away, I need an u/s now...lol!  Hanging in there!  Nat

I'm here still at 31 weeks and 2 days. I'm really surprised that I'm still cooking. I had a doctor's appointment on Friday because we thought my water had broken (again). It hadn't, which is a relief. But from my appointment last Tuesday to that Friday, I lost 3 pounds. The doctors are a little worried since I'm having trouble keeping food down again. (I lost 45 pounds in 6 weeks first trimester and have been battling ever since to put on weight) We ended up in L&D on Friday night since I couldn't keep anything solid down and because I hadn't felt the baby move all day. She's fine and happy and healthy and started kicking after the NST. It amazes me how precocious she is already.  :P I have an u/s next week to see how she's growing and an appointment with my doctor to talk about induction.

Still here on bedrest, 30 weeks today. I'm officially out of the 20s.  :)

I have an OB appt and cervix check tomorrow, so hoping all looks good. I'm really hoping to actually avoid the NICU this time around.

Another week down!  Yay!!!  I am now 29 weeks and 4 days.  Wow... A long way from 23 weeks where we started this journey.

I had an apptment Thursday, and all went well.  Measured at 31 weeks, gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks (yikes!), and I feel huge!  Still 10 weeks from due date!

She didn't check me, but will next week.  She IS allowing me to go to modified bed rest.  One outing per day, and let me tell you, that helps the mood tremendously!!!  Although, I get so tired and have more bh contractions after going out.  I just listen to my body and try not to over do it.

I'm wondering about mckoygirl!  She hasn't posted in a few days???  Hmmmmm....

Hello ladies! Glad everyone is doing well!

I'm 36 weeks 1 day today and boy am I feeling like a whale. I've got an appt on Thursday to get my GBS test done. Usually at this point my doc would talk out my cerclage but we both decided that we'll have it removed at 37 weeks so just a few more days to go :)

Aside from that, our house is a mess :( we had a darn water pipe burst which left a lot of water damage to our carpets, walls & hardwood floor. It should all be fixed by next Wednesday. It's driving me insane thinking I'm gonna go into labor & have my little princess before they're done lol so here's to hoping that little Maddy stays in for another 2 weeks since we aren't allowed in our house for a few days  :-\

When I was first put on bed rest on new years eve, I never thought I'd get this far. I had a husband in Afghanistan & was fully dependent on other people. Now I'm 6 days away from term! Its a feeling only us bed rest moms know. To want something so bad that you'll do anything and everything in your power to make it happen. I am so proud of us :) No one can ever, ever question our devotion to motherhood. Not after the months and months of bed rest. Keep it up ladies!!!

I'm still cookin' at 31 weeks 3 days!! I'm SO excited to have made it this far. U/S last week revealed no changes in my cervix and that baby was close to 4 lbs! I only have one more appointment w/ my MFM docs, so from that point on I will only be seeing my regular OB. Baby has been moving & kicking like crazy. Sometimes it seems like she's trying to fight her way out through my belly button! I'm getting excited to meet her, but hope she cooks for a few more weeks :)

Hello everyone, I'm still present.  :) I laughed when I read Mommy_haley's post.  ;D Yes I'm still preggo....

I'm 35 weeks, 4 days today and am not very fun to be around lately.  :-\ Babies are moving well which is great, I spent two nights this weekend up contracting all night, even took 3 baths in one night, trying to "labor" in the tub. Could have sworn I was starting into labor. But guess what? Nada! The contractions fizzle out to irregularity during the daytime. I did go to labor & delivery to be checked and was 2+cm, 80%, and baby "A" was pretty low. Still, not much different from Friday so it's not time yet! Thursday I will be 36 weeks and ready to go (term for twins is 36-38wks)! I've told my husband after that if I have to drug him & blindfold him so be it, but we're going to start being pro-active in getting my body ready for labor!!!  ;)

I have appointments Friday for my weekly vaginal exam, non-stress test and fetal biophysical profiles. The kiddos should be measuring around 13lbs between the two of them now (11.5lbs last check 2.5 weeks ago).

I am officially able to do what I feel like now, which is so funny because I can't even walk or stand longer than 5 minutes without feeling as if my vagina is going to fall out my tail-end!
All complaints aside, I'm very psyched to meet my little ones inside, and am some days bursting at the seams in anticipation! The light is getting nearer, and although I'm miserable, it's nothing compared to 19 weeks of bedrest!
Hang in there moms, it'll be worth it.
Due date: 7/7/2011
Twins (we're not finding out the sexes!)
5th pregnancy (5yrs old-put on bedrest with her @ 35wks for PIH)
3 previous losses
Put on bedrest this pregnancy @ 17weeks for Cervical shortening & preterm labor
Thanking God for each day I'm given with my twins!

Too funny mckoy girl!  I'm glad I could make you laugh a little.  You sound quite miserable, and I don't blame you.  You must be!!!!!

I'm thinking you'll have two babies in your arms shortly.  And lets hope your va jay jay doesn't fall out your tail-end!  Hilarious...
