My c-section scheduled for the 21st
« on: May 10, 2012 at 06:23 AM »
Hello there,

I am 36+1 with a previa, many bleeds many hospital stays ect on bedrest since 13 weeks. I got my weekly check and my doctor scheduled me for a c-section on the 21st (I will be 37+5) of curse if nothing happens till then... Even if he did not take me off bed rest officially I started getting up a bit. Sit at the table with my family, supervise meals prep ect... Feels great. Can not wait to take a walk in the park. Well to be honest we never though we would make it that far and bed rest was painful for me and also for those around. I continue my meds at least till next week thursday check up then we will see my doctor just took me off progesteron for now... So I keep with nifedipine iron and magnesium plus my pre-natal vitamines...
Some good news I wanted to share with all the ladies jailed in bed... Keep tight !!!

Boy no1: 38+6 natural birth uneventful pregnancy
Boy no2: 37+4 c-section after 14 weeks of bedrest due to bleeding previa

Wow! That is fantastic! Sounds like a good plan to keep up with your meds and start easing back into activity. Looks like you're going all the way to 37 weeks, my dear! Way to go!
