Hospital bed rest
« on: October 28, 2014 at 04:26 PM »
Hi all,

Prayers please! I went to the hospital 3 weeks ago when my water broke at 26 weeks and have been here ever since! I have an adorable little boy, Thomas (18 months) at home, who was born at 41 weeks. We just hit the 29 week mark and are hoping to keep this little guy on the inside until 34 weeks. Everything seems to be ok other than the water breaking -- had the steroid shots, no signs on infection, and no contractions (fingers crossed that it stays that way). I'm hoping to connect with some other soon to be mamas on bed rest to break up some of the monotony of the day!!

Hi I'm Rasah. You've done amazing by making it 3 weeks after your water broke. I'm on BR at home (7weeks). IC w/ cerclage & shortened cervical length. I'm 28+4 weeks now and I am praying to make it to 34 also. Just stay positive cuz BR can be very emotional. Sometimes I wish I was in the hospital just in case she decides to come early. Do you know why your water broke?
