Bed Rest Mamas Check-In *Tuesday*

This thread is for any and all mamas on bedrest, in any form. We are stuck home or in the hospital, in a bed or on our couches, and could use the support of each other to make it through this time in order to get to a healthy baby! We all know how hard bedrest is and we wish everyone a healthy pregnancy!!!! Anyone is welcome to join, and anyone can start this daily thread. Just copy and paste this paragraph and info lines below if you get here and the thread has yet to start for that day!

Name - Lesley

Due Date - 2/10

Date Placed on Bedrest - restricted activity/pelvic rest at 18 weeks; modified 12/10; hospitalized 12/16

Type - Hospitalized Modified bed rest

Why - Vasa previa/(possible) pregnancy induced hypertension

Question of the Day - What are your favorite TV shows right now?

Answer - I love Glee, Big Bang Theory (we're such nerds), The Office, and How I Met Your Mother.  I'm also spending a lot of time trying to catch up with Lost.  I'm about to start season 4.  My DH is desperately trying to get me into Battlestar Galactica but I haven't started it yet.

Updates - Up bright and early again today for a BPP...he's still not showing any signs of breathing but everything else looks great.  I'm supposed to get a repeat this afternoon at some point.  Hopefully he's just not cooperating because it's so early.  Please keep us in your T&Ps though!

 **Good luck today at your NST, Cora!  I'm glad the good nurse is back!  I was thinking of checking the Vaccine book out and now I'll definitely do so.

I hope everyone else is doing well!**

    Question of the Day - What are your favorite TV shows right now?

    Answer - 

    I have been watching Friends on DVD, my husband downloaded How I Met Your Mother for me, I love the old BH 90210 re-runs on SoapNet.  All the "new" shows I watch are off right now, but I have been watching Gossip Girl, Glee, House, White Collar, and Grey's Anatomy.  I can't believe by the time Glee comes back on TV my babies will be here!  I also like The Closer on TNT, but that is off til summer.

  • I was bummed when I realized that my hospital stay started basically when all the shows were done for the season.  We'll all have our hands happily full by the time most of the new shows are on.

    Why - contractions and threatened PTL

    Question of the Day - What are your favorite TV shows right now?

    Answer - I am getting sucked into a bunch of reality TV - Keeping up with the Kardashians, For the Love of Ray J, Tough Love, etc. I usually watch many shows on Animal Planet with my three furry "kids" and of course "Baby Story" on TLC.

    Updates - Boring appointment yesterday, so that was a relief. The office was understaffed, so we had to wait an hour to see my OB. It was just a belly check, and my OB stating he's glad I'm still pregnant. He said we have passed the critical 32 week point, but he wants to be greedy and get me to 36 weeks. My next appointment is January 12, since I have been good on my bedrest. After that point, he is going to start weaning me off the terbutaline and let nature take it's course.
