I lost a baby at 19 weeks and 2 days due to an incompetent cervix. I had dilated to 7 cm without a single contraction. For my next pregnancy (twins!) I had a cerclage placed at week 10 and was monitored weekly. I began to funnel at week 20 and was on bed rest from that point on. I took bed rest very seriously. Loosing a baby is a horrible experience that no one should ever have to experience. The death of a baby, or babies is not worth the trip to Starbucks or wherever you may decide you need to go.
I was allowed to use the stairs once a day, and to go to the restroom as needed. I spent my days in my living room and slept upstairs in my bed. The internet, books, friends, crocheting, creating a baby registry online all kept me from going insane.
The cerclage was taken out at 36 weeks and I chose to be induced at 37. Baby Girl was 6 lb. 7 oz. and Baby Boy was 6 lb. 10 oz. They are now robust 13 month old babies who we have a hard time keeping from climbing up on chairs and from there the table (Lord help us)
Get as much help as you can. My husband was an amazing support and help. We hired people to clean. Ask for help from your friends, family, neighbors, anyone else there is to ask. It felt funny to ask a friend to buy mouthwash, a water bottle, a calendar a click pen for me the next time she was out, but I really needed one (I kept drawing on the couch because I'd forget to put the cap on the pen). I asked friends to make meals, or drop off a pizza or some other take out. A lint brush was great for rolling the crumbs off of me and the couch. I got a laser point to entertain and play with the puppy since I couldn't get on the floor to play with her.
Netflix was also a great thing. Watch all the movies you want now since you won't have time once those babies arrive!
