Positive Bed Rest Story....
« on: June 11, 2015 at 06:37 PM »
Hi all. Just wanted to share my story and bring you all some positivity during this difficult time! My first son was born at 33 weeks due to PROM. My second pregnancy, I was placed on Progesterone injection from week 16. I was found to have a shortened cervix at 29 weeks and placed on Modified Bed Rest. At 32 weeks, I was hospitalized for pre term labor. I stayed for 1 week in the hospital, placed on around the clock Procardia, and went home on pretty strict bed rest.
I was able to get to 37 weeks, stopped all my meds, and was able to move! I even went back to work on the following Monday.
I delivered by baby boy this past weekend, June 6th, at 38 weeks and 3 days. After only 2.5 hours of contractions, no time for an epidural, he arrived after 2 pushes.
Any my dream came true, we were both discharged from the hospital at the same time!!
So hang in there, but you all can do it!!

Take Care!!
