Bed rest SUCCESS! Meet our daughter
« on: November 11, 2015 at 06:47 PM »
Hello ladies!
It's my pleasure to announce that our healthy baby daughter, Deanna Marshia, was born last Wednesday at 39 weeks 5 days.  I was on bedrest from 26 weeks to 37 weeks due to constant contractions. This forum has been a huge part of my pregnancy and I wanted to share that I truly believe bedrest brought me this healthy baby girl.
Thank you for all of your encouraging words, stories, and friendship through this questionable and scary time. I had a ritual of checking this form throughout the day, and it was very important and keeping me sane and optimistic. Wishing you all the very best!

Oh! I forgot to mention her stats. Deanna weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. and was 21.5 inches long.  APGAR scores of 8 and 9. The doctor induced me two days early due to my advanced maternal age (35 is oldish!) and concerns about my placenta. Three hours of a low dose of Pitocin and my body kicked right in and knew what to do. I was in at noon and she was born before midnight.

Congrats!  Gives me so much hope that I will make it into the third trimester and beyond!  These positive stories are great reminders to stay horizontal when we get frustrated! And believe me, I've been getting frustrated more and more lately.  Thanks so much for sharing your success with the group!

Congratulations!! Way to go, mommy! So proud of you for persisting with the bedrest and getting your little one to term! She sounds perfect!
On bedrest with our first pregnancy, beginning at 27w3d for short cervix (0.00 cm) and preterm labor. Kept our daughter cooking until her birth at 37w3d, and she is perfect! Born 1/7/16, weighing 6 lbs 10.5 oz, 18.5 inches long!
