I am new to the group, and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sonya, and I am from Charlotte, NC. This is my second time on bedrest, but this will be the first baby that I get to bring home with me. I lost my first son at 19 weeks due to undiagnosed incompetent cervix. During my second pregnancy I had a vaginal cerclage placed, and was on complete hospital bedrest from 11 weeks to 23 weeks when my water broke and I lost my precious son. With my current pregnancy I opted to have an abdominal cerclage placed pre-pregnancy, weekly hydroxyprogesterone injections, and this got me to 30 weeks without any problems other than gestational diabetes. The day that I turned 30 weeks pregnant I started having contractions and was sent to L&D where I spent the night. They sent me home on bedrest until my doctors appointment today. I have now been placed on bedrest at home until the baby comes and on oral terbutaline. My c-section is scheduled for March 31 at 38w6d, and I hope that I make it that far.
I look forward to meeting everyone, and finding out what everyone does to pass the time.
