  • It really depends on your doctor, and what he/she thinks is best for you and the baby.

  • If you can definitively say that you will have someone at home taking care of your every need 24/7, and you live relatively close to the hospital, you may be able to avoid hospital bedrest. BUT, when I say every need 24/7, that's exactly what that means, you absolutely can't ever be without an adult caregiver right there.

  • You know....the baby's health is more important than whether or not you want to be on bedrest. Its not all about you.
