to be put on bed rest already. On Saturday I was having some pretty bad contractions about 10 min apart, but they wouldn't even moniter me, check to see if I was dehydrated, do an ultrasoundor anything else because I'm not 20 weeks. I had my regular ob appt today and the nurse was looking way up and on the side for the heart beat and I kept telling her it was in the center very low. She said that at this point she would be able to find the baby much higher so she kept trying. Finally she put the doppler really low and in the center and what do you know...a heart beat of 150! Grr. Anyway, she and the doctor both said that the baby is extremly low, and that acompanied by my placenta previa is what's causing my contractions. They also said that's why my uterus is still really low (just above my pubic bone.) So, now I'm on complete bedrest for who knows how long. I won't be on for a few days because it's really hard for me to sit upright enough to use dh's computer and I'm waiting for a new plug for my laptop.. Other than that things are just peachy. I have my next ultrasound on the 30th and I'll be 17weeks 1day so I can't imagine that they wouldn't be able to tell the sex. Sorry that was so long, I can't wait to get back and get caught up. I'll miss you all. (These pregnancy hormones have made me so sentimental, lol.)

Oh gosh Stephanie..I'm so sorry you have to be in bed. I can only imagine how that might be with older kids and a household to run... but you WILL make it through. Is there anyone that can come in and help out if need be?

Take care of yourself ...T&P's are coming your way.

We'll miss you but come back when you can.

Oh no! I hope the bedrest helps. I wonder where that nurse was from. When they check for the hb it's still soooo low on me, too. Sounds like she had no idea what she was talking out. Good to hear the baby is doing well. I hope this is temporary!

Man that's sucky! I know firsthand how horribly boring bedrest is. I hope you're off of it and back on your feet soon!

Sorry you are on bed rest. I remember how difficult that is. You don't realize all the things you do everyday until you aren't allowed to do them. You're still early enough for the previa to resolve itself. I had full previa at 17 weeks with the twins and by 28 weeks it was gone.
