Just got home from my dr appt. I asked him to check me because I have been having pretty painful contractions over the past week or two. I am 2cm dilated & 60% effaced. Eek! He put me on bedrest for the next week & a half. He said I can drive my son to & from school & take a shower but that's about it. I can't go to the boys' basketball games this weekend, can't go to my prenatal massage this weekend ugh!
So the goal is to keep her in until 36 weeks AT LEAST, but really push for 37 weeks. And he doesn't want me sitting up much at all, he said I should be laying down almost all the time.
I am frustrated about bedrest but I know it's very important to keep her in there baking for at least another week & a half. So this momma is down for the count & I'll probably be around here a lot more!! Haha

Bedrest is NOT fun! I've been off and on bedrest this whole pregnancy. I think that's the main reason I am ready for this pregnancy to be over.

Keep that baby baking momma!

I think bed rest is a love/hate relationship. Part of you thinks, it'll be really nice to say you 'have' to rest and for a little while it will be. Then the other part is like, seriously? They expect this nesting mama with other kids to worry about to just lay there for the next week? :/

Try to make the best of it, and def hang out around here more.

Ugh. Sorry for the bedrest. I've not been there but I think MommysPocket hit the nail on the head for how I'd feel! I also have issues being told what to do I'm a bit umm rebellious shall we say. Hope that baby stays put for a while still!!

So sorry you're joining the bed rest club! Hope the week and a half goes by quickly, and that the little one stays put for now!

Unfortunately, I'm sure we'll be seeing more and more of these posts over the next couple of weeks.

I am a terrible bed rest person. They put me on it last time, and it only lasted 5 days. Thankfully, my girls were older, but now with a little one again and being pregnant, I would be at my wit's end trying to stay in bed all day. However, in retrospect, the one thing I learned is that I would, by far, prefer to be on bedrest than to be induced early.

It definitely stinks. I can't find a comfortable spot on the darn couch & the boys are bickering in the other room. I hate that they have to entertain themselves. My mom is taking them for the night & she is going to feed them dinner when she picks them up but I feel like I should be up cooking dinner. The dishwasher needs unloaded & loaded. Laundry needs started. Uuuggghhhhh. And every time I get up I have a contraction. Idk how long the Princess will stay put but I really am doing my best to stay laying down so that she has the chance to grow a little more in there. But this is really hard & I've only been laying for half of a flipping day!!

Welcome to the bed rest club! We have to try to keep each other sane until we get to our new due dates.. I hope that those contractions settle down for you though .. but your princess seems to be knocking at the door. That's ultra exciting!

It's super exciting & I have to admit I am ready to meet her! BUT, I don't want a nicu baby I really think she'll be here sooner rather than later. The longest I'll be laying around is a week & a half so I keep telling myself that it won't last long. But my goodness, by this time next week I might be completely nutso.

Try and think of it in shorter goals (easier said than done I'm sure). Try and remind yourself to just get through the weekend and on Monday morning you'll be able to get out and take your boys to school.

I am sorry to hear that you are on bed rest. I hope that you are able to keep your little girl in there until 37 weeks. Definitely hang out here more.
