Now on Strict Bed Rest.
11
Wed, 10-17-2012 - 9:59am

First off, I'm going to say this new ivillage thing is giving me SUCH a hard time!  It has taken me two days to be able to log in, I can't view half of the threads, and my original bookmark on the tablet and computer don't work.  One more frustration for this irritated pregnant woman.  Undecided

Ok, onto the appointment I had yesterday.  I was there for three hours.  First I had my u/s, then my appoinment.  My cervix shortened even more to 23mm, so now the dr is more concerned than before.  She consulted the high risk dr.  That dr told her to do a culture on my cervix to rule out two types of infections, put me on strict bed rest, and (finally) prescribe me a medicine to stop my contractions.  The medicine I'm precribed is pretty dangerous for the baby, but so is being born way too early.  I'm only allowed to take it for 7 days. 

Fun fact: I had to take my pants off three times!  I should have just showed up naked!  LoL

I have to see the high risk dr. next week for another cervical length u/s.  They will also check her anotomy, too.  If my cervix is shorter, I may  have to have the cerclage put in.  *sigh*

I am sorry you are on BR FT :( but most important is baking that baby for as long as possible!  (((Hugs))) and I hope the best for you in these coming weeks and months.

PS - I am having the SAME problems with IV.  Hopefully they fix them soon.

Wow, I can't believe this is actually working. i haven't been able to get on here in days! This is really ridiculous. I am sure there are many others who can't get on either. I had about decided that I was never going to get back on. Anyway, I am so sorry about the bedrest and the worry. I know that must be so hard especially with little ones. This little girl is worth every minute though! It sounds like you have good drs on top of it all and you will get through it. It will be so exciting when you hold that little girl in your arms. I found out on Tuesday that I am having a girl too! Pink after three blues is amaing! It sounds like you will get more peaks of your little girl that will hopefully help you get through the rest.

Everyone, find our group on the "face" of the "book!"  A few of us are already there!  ...March 2013 Expecting Club  

Today, I have lost my sanity.  Being trapped in the house, and on the couch is not like me.  I'm an energetic mom who is always either cleaning, working, or out and about with the boys.  Not to mention I feel swollen and heavy already!  I'm trying to keep myself busy, but it's very monotinous.  Sorry for whining, but someone has to hear it!  LoL

I'm sorry to hear about the bed rest:(. I can only imagine how difficult that must be, when you're eager to be up and playing with your boys. Maybe you could rent or borrow some good movies or tv series to help the time pass?

Best of luck with everything!
