Anybody on hospital bed rest or bed rest in general for a while?

My dr has me in the hospital because my cervix has shortened a little more and I was having some light contractions. They have almost stopped and my cervix gets checked tomorrow. I'm just over 24 weeks and want to go as long as possible. Was anybody in this early and how did you make time past? I may be able to go home later but I think I will be here for at least a few weeks.

I have been on hospital bedrest with one, bedrest at home with two (pretty sure we're going on three). I have a shortening cervix/cntrx that start shortly after 20ish wks. It has happened with the last three pregnancies and the cntrx have started already with this one (17wks tomorrow). I start dilating very early on. Mine managed to stay in until 35, 32, 34 and 39 wks. Bedrest sucks, but places like Diaperswappers helped a lot and I started to think of it as "look at all this rest I'm getting! I'll wish I could do this once the baby gets here!" LOL. Hang in there and feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat!

Hi, with my first set of twins I was hospitlized at 21.5 weeks due to cervix shortening and contractions.. They almost did a cerclage but they found i was stabelizing on bedrest and contraction meds. After a few days I got to go home on strict bedrest and meds. I didn't deliver until 36.5 weeks! Hang in there!
