The Bed Rest Thread (formerly Hospital Stay)

edited August 2018 in December 2018 Moms
Hey everyone,  I'm doing a one-off for this because I don't want to hijack the other threads. It's been a sucky day in hkom-land.  At my MFM appointment this morning they found that my cervix has funneled a lot further. Thankfully, it's still closed but they sent me down to triage in L&D to monitor me for a while and picked up some very mild contractions (I can't even feel them).  Because I'm in the weird purgatory of the mid-20 weeks they are pumping me full of meds to relax my uterus to hopefully keep anything else from happening. Unfortunately that means I'm going to be in the hospital for the rest of the week.  Looks like I'll be passing lots of time on TB!

  • @hkom oh no! Better they found it now so they can monitor you and give you meds to hopefully prevent anything else from happening! The best place you can be right now is in the hospital. Sending you lots of hugs!

    @Jens_Hoes It was immediate.  I went straight from MFM to triage to my room. H went home for the afternoon but is bringing me all my stuff later.

  • @hkom so sorry you are experiencing this but you are definitely in the right place! I hope everything settles and you get to go home asap. It sounds like now is the time to sign up for Netflix or Hulu and get some new books!  ;) Let us know if you need recommendations!

  • @hkom Oh no! I'm sure an impromptu hospital stay was not what you were expecting when you went in this morning! I'm glad your medical team is being proactive and are doing everything they can to make sure your LO stays put. I hope this week goes by as quickly and seamlessly as possible for you <3

  • I'm so sorry. That really sucks. It's good that you are getting the care you need though. Hope everything goes well!!

  • @hkom I’m so happy you’re being monitored, but sucks that it’s come to a full week in the hospital! Now you can read all of the books and not vacuum or pick up any dog poop :heart:

  • Oh no! Just here to chime in with everyone that I'm glad they caught it, you're both ok for now, and you're being monitored. Sending all the good vibes that lo stays put for a long time and does lots of growing! Xoxo 
    hkom
  • @hkom thanks for letting us know how you are doing. Good thoughts and prayers that your body rests and responds to the meds. Thinking of you and hoping you are able to rest. I would imagine that is very challenging to do. 
    hkom
  • @hkom just saw this now. I’m sorry you are having a scary not-fun impromptu hospital stay. Hopefully the meds keep helping and calm things down so baby can cook a liitle more.

    Can your husband stay with you tonight? Having company and distraction might help, especially for your first night there. Sending good wishes your way.  <3

  • Fx your lady parts simmer down and the bed rest is helpful. Hopefully you’ll find things to do to keep you entertained throughout the week too. 

    hkom
  • @hkom I wondered about your doggo! I know that if I were in a hospital bed, my DH would be more stressed if he stayed at the hospital too. Partially because the dogs are bonkers, but also because trying to sleep away from home is always...not restful.
