  • yeah i have it bed rest for it though. I find that odd that they made you go on bed rest; as it is a chronic condition that can either go away or stay for good after pregnancy....

  • well it's possible that they are making sure that it isn't something else, and just in case, little movement until your appointment...

  • if it's that bad, honestly, it seriously could be something else; as mine is annoying but not to the point I can only lay on one side.... so you just take it easy and rest ;)
