I'm new here!

HI, I'm new.

 

I'm a mama of an 11yo boy and an 8 yo girl, and expecting number 3 at the end of feb!  We're planning a home birth (my other two were also home births), and getting co-care with a CNM.  Unfortunately I seem to be having some preterm labor issues, so for the time being I'm on bed rest.  So I have lots of time on my hands all of the sudden.   I had been a full time student, but now that's all on hold.  I feel frustrated with all this, but that's another topic.  Anyway, hi mamas!

Welcome mama!  Sorry about the PTL.  Sounds scary.  Hopefully you will get past this and make it to 37 weeks so you can have your homebirth!

Welcome!

Sorry to hear you're on bed rest.  I'm sure your care provider has given you lots of good info, but PTL is something I'm a bit concerned about this time (I'm underweight and haven't been with previous pregnancies) and I found this thread super helpful.

Hope you're enjoying some good books or movies during the day!  :)

Hi Mama!

 

I'm sorry to hear you are dealing with pre-term labor concerns.  I was put on modified bed rest due to dilation/effacement without contractions so I can relate.  I am also in school full-time and had to significantly modify my course and future plans.  Sending lots of "stay-put-baby" vibes to you.  The link Odinsmama posted is very helpful.  Welcome!

Welcome! Bed rest does not sound fun, but if it helps keep the baby in, that's what you need! There's plenty to read on MDC to keep you busy :)
