Well on May 26th I woke up , got a drink and sat down on my couch, Instantly I started noticing contractions, so when I timed them they were 5 minutes apart, so I went into L&D, and they monitered me, gave me 3 bags of IV fluids and then they tried Indocin to stop the contractions. They slowed down, but then picked right back up so they admitted me for 4 days.
I caame home and that nigth I had a few more and the next day also.

A few days later I went to see my high risk ob, and she explained to me that because of my heart condition, they can't use Mag Sulfate, Terbutline or Procardia. So I was told I would go on Bedrest until the baby is born, and if hey have to use the Indocin again, but it causes some damage if used long.

Now I am thinking full bedrest??? I have a house to run, 3 yr old twins who are very active and one is autistic, HOW IN THE WORLD CAN I DO BEDREST? So The dr calls my Insurance Co, and told them I needed a home health aid, to help with the kids while DH is at work and to do some light cleaning.

My dr;s place is trying to keep me off my feet, our goal is to get to 34 weeks

You will have to find a way to do it. Simple as that.
25 weeks is way way too early

Find a way to do it.

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I put the "D" in lysdexia

Sanity is a cozy lie.

That must be terribly scary. I wish you the very best in the remaining weeks. Take care.

I am glad that your insurance is helping you out. We are in the same situation and it is SO hard when you have an active toddler at home, especially when you can't pick them up to comfort them or do any of the basic things for them that we are used to doing as moms.

Im so sorry! I am glad though that the insurance is going to help you out.
I was in the same situation. I went into labor at 29 weeks, but i was able to be put on terbutaline.
My OB told me to be on full bedrest. Which I didn't do and it wasn't a good idea because I went into labor 5 more times and delivered at 37 weeks.
STAY IN BED! Good luck though!
