New to Site and to Bed Rest
« on: July 16, 2009 at 01:18 AM »
I found this site through Twitter. I am 30 weeks pregnant and have now been on bed rest for about a week and a half in the hospital.  I went in for a regularly scheduled Ultrasound about a week and a half ago and they found that my cervix was too thin. They wisked me away to L & D to monitor me and begin steroid shots to help the baby's lungs mature.  After several hours, I was sent to another room to begin my hospital stay. My doctor gave me the FFN test, and it came back positive, so they are monitoring me in the hospital for now.
I had no symptoms of preterm labor, so I was quite suprised when our trip to the hospital for he Ultrasound ended up in a long hospital bed rest stay for me.

I'm excited to find this site and see what ideas and resources about bed rest and preterm labor I can find here.
