hi Leslie!
I'm on modified bedrest. I am allowed to be slightly active for short periods of time. I am disabled and use a wheelchair part of the time. the wheelchair reclines, so I am able to go from room to room easily.

Did you have to do bedrest with your first? I've got a cerclage but started funneling. I'm in the hospital just doing the count down. It's pretty scary but I guess I'm in the best place I can be. I'm in the prenatal unit where everyone is pretty much in the same boat. Long haul!! Leslie

I was on bed rest at home with both pregnancies. It's the pits, but in the end, if it means that you get a healthy baby, that's what matters, right?


 

Hang in there!!

I'm sorry you are in the hospital on bedrest. I can imagine it is very hard.

I spent 6 months on bedrest, but was able to stay home for it. I did go into labor a few times and spent a few nights in the hospital with each time, but I had a monitor at home to check for contractions that I did twice a day. They attempted a cerclage at 12 weeks, but were unable to put it in due to an abnormality that I have.

Good Luck and let us know how you are doing.
