I had a bit of bleeding this morning so I went to my perinatologist & she put me on bed rest!! I have partial placenta previa. The baby looked fine. Anyway, I have a regular OB appointment on Monday, so they'll re-evaluate me and see if I need to continue with the bedrest or if I can be normal again. I have a 4-yo and a 2-yo so bedrest would be crazy hard. I only work 3 days a week, so on Mon & Wed I have them all by myself; not sure who I could get to help out as my MIL watches my baby niece on those days and can't handle mine on top of that. Thank goodness I've been able to get my numbers down before this happened; hopefully the lack of moving around won't effect them too badly. My peri said to be as strict as I can, and hopefully I won;t have to end up on glyburide or something. I'm bummed about not being able to go trick-or-treating with the kids this weekend She told me that I can sit on a chair and pass out candy but that is it.

I'm sorry you're on bedrest. I was on partial bedrest from 20 to 28 weeks and then full bedrest from 28 to 36 weeks with my DS. I had high BP, contractions and terrible swelling. I had to take a ton of insulin to keep my sugar numbers down and they never really got under control. It's so hard to keep them down when you can do absolutely no moving around at all. Don't worry about the glyburide. The only thing is it gives me heartburn but it's nothing I can't manage.

Good luck!

Thanks. I'm actually off bedrest now, but am still taking it fairly easy. I really do not want to have to do that again!!
