I'm on bedrest...
Sun, 06-01-2003 - 1:49pm
Sorry for the baby news on WTT, but since I'm your grumpy old cl, I wanted to let you know that I'm probably going to be scarce for a couple of weeks. My sentence is lifted as of June 14 (35w3d)--I weaseled my way into going to my DDs dance recital on that day. We're trying to keep this little one inside just a bit longer, and just about anything but lying down results in contractions (I'm at 2cm now) so try to put up with my absence and keep your fingers crossed! If I go into labor they won't try to stop it--baby is safe after 34 weeks (I'm 34w3d). I'll still be sneaking online here and there, but I don't know how long I'll have so if you guys could help out I'd be grateful! You all know what the daily threads are--if you get here and don't see them, feel free to post them. I'm going to miss you guys!

We can take care of ourselves for a while. You just make sure to keep you and little one safe. We'll be waiting to hear any news you have to share with us. Until then, take care of yourself.

Thanks for letting us know what's going on. Yes, it's important that you get that bedrest and take things easy. We can wait impatiently for that little on to come out, hopefully on time. I pray that things go well and I'm glad to hear that if the baby were to come now, it would be ok. I'm sure the women here can take care while you're away for awhile.

take care,


Still impatiently waiting for my TTC cycle

Hope your little one stays put just a little bit longer! I'm sure bedrest is frustrating, especially with litlte ones at home. But June 14th isn't TOO much longer... I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Hey friend,

I hope you and baby are doing well today. I just saw this and wanted to post my best wishes for you both. I'm sure you have mixed feelings: wanting to hold the little one in your arms, and yet wanting him/her to stay put and grow a little bigger. It must be reassuring to know that things will be ok if he/she decides to come out early.

My DD's dance recital is the same weekend as yours. Which is why I didn't ttc at that time, so I wouldn't be due now! LOL

I can't wait to hear your birth story. I just know that things will work out ok for all!

Good luck and take care!
