That's all I got sent home with...even with my tiny belly, the contractions were registering, but since the ultrasound showed no placenta previa, good fluid and a long cervix they sent me home for 24 hours strict bed rest. Not even any fluids. With my last two babies, they checked me at about 28 weeks because I complained of contractions and found I was dialated to 2 and nearly fully effaced, this time they don't do an exam, just use ultrasound to measure cervical length, I don't understand how they can make a clear determination of any cervical change that way. I mean I guess I feel like I could tolerate the pain and discomfort from contractions if I knew it wasn't causing any dilation. I was too exhausted to worry about it then, but after lying here all day I'm thinking of all they could do to ensure we do not go into full blown premature labor. Off my feet I have only had one contraction, but my belly is still sore. Well, sorry this is so negative, I'm just so worried I will need to be on full bed rest and I cannot possibly justify doing my job full time from home for the next 15 weeks. Thanks in advance for any advice and your thoughts :)
