Long story short food poisioning=severe dehydration= trip to L&D (ER wouldn't take me). I'm 33 wks 2 days and dialated to 2 cm 50% effaced- checked b/c having regular ctx 2-3 min apart. Went back today no change in cervix and ctx still 2-3 min apart. This is *normal* for me. I got a preterm labor warning w/both my boys b/c of all the early and regular ctx that I had (with them 4-6 min apart when I was monitored). Well the MW said modified bedrest for next 2.5 wks. I have a 20 mo old and 3.5 y/o so difficult to say the least...... my honest feeling is that it's overly precautious b/c I know my body just likes to contract! The boys were born at 41 and 37.5 wks. Am I going to be a big dork for not laying down all day? I've had regular ctx this pregnancy from 28 wks (3 times so bad I wasn't sure whether I was actually in early labor or just my 'routine' ctx). Does bedrest really do anything? I contract no matter what I do- it just hurts more when I lay down and do nothing.
