When were you put on bedrest and for what reason?
35w for PTL.
Made it to scheduled c/s at 38w2d.
I went out at 23 weeks 4 days. I never thought it would be so early.
I was experiencing contractions and increasing back pain for three days. I went to my MFM and my cervix had shortened from 3.1 cm to 2.3 cm in 6 days. I also had new evidence of funneling and dynamic changes. My career is extremely active with being on my feet literally 80 hours a week. My mom also had cervical incompetence with me at 24 weeks and underwent an emergency cerclage. I was born at 30 weeks. So it's hard to know the cause - likely multifactorial. So here I am at home on bedrest taking procardia for my contractions.
They called it Pre Term Contractions, I was not going into labor but I had non-stop BH contractions.
bedrest 13wks (2nd bad bleed) - 19wks. modified br till 23wks. bedrest at 23wks for short/funneling cervix/irritable uterus. made it till 33w4d!
At 24w for IUGR/TTTS.
But by 29w I also had cervix issues and elevated BP that would have necessitated it.
