Ugh! I didn't know you were on hospital bed rest! So sorry.... I did a week of home bed rest at the start of June (bp, not ptl) -- saw the OB again today and so far I'm free from going back on it, but we'll see....

i saw that you were on bedrest; but not in the hospital! I'm sorry i spent a wk on hospital bedrest and now restriced to home bedrest; i feel your pain.:hugs: Will your doctor take you off at 36wks? That's what mine will do; although i don't think i'm making it that far; i'm funneling and length is back down to 3.64

I'm sorry! :( I'm on home bedrest for a progressing short cervix and PTL. It's not fun.

SS mama! :hugs: I was on home bedrest with DS#1, but I had no kids then so I can't complain too much. Keep cooking baby and stay in!

I've never been on hospital bed rest but that sounds awful and likely my worst nightmare at this point.

My doctor told me today if I didn't take it easy I'd be on bedrest by next week. She said Im having way too many contractions and if this wasn't my third I'd already be on bedrest....so Im avoiding it at all costs.

I have a feeling I'll be joining the hospital bedrest club... I was just released on the 2nd after going into PTL again. They sent me home on strict bedrest, but it hasnt helped AT ALL... needless to say, if things dont slow down, I'll be back to L&D and stuck there until baby is born.

I am not currently expecting, but I was stuck in the hossy twice for PTL with my son, the 3rd time, 36 weeks, ended with and emergency c-section and him in NICU for 4 days :/. the first 2 times it was 1.5 weeks each.

I've been incarcerated too. Spent Sun-Thu in the local hosp - Thu was diagnosed w/severe pre-e and sent by ambulance to a hosp w a better NICU. The liver #s have actually gone back to normal, and the protein is just at "mild pre-e" levels, but the bp is still high. Day by day! 33.5 weeks tomorrow -- current goal is 35.... Limited sitting-up time, but I thought I'd check the other August mamas....
