I had a U/S today because I am concerned higher risk. I am measuring fine at 6 weeks 1 day. The only concern was hat the HB was a little low at 99, and that they have spotted a "tiny" bleed behind the point of implanation called a "hypo-echoic area superior to GS".
Because of this, my specialist has recommended that I go on precautionary bed rest until January 4th, at which point I will have another two U/S's under my belt (ha).
Has anyone ever done bed rest before? Any advice?
I have to tell my manager now, which is icky.
When I was on bedrest I had a toddler and it was really hard! Do you have a cooler? My dh would make my breakfast, lunch and snacks and have them in a cooler with ice next to the couch, along with a bunch of water. I only would get up to go to the bathroom, then back to lying down. Also had the phone and computer plugged in next to me, with a sign on the door saying no visitors. :)

I did, but not so early. I was well into my last trimester! You poor thing. Just keep things all close by, don't feel guilty about anything. Take care of yourself and that baby!
