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.

No advice for you, but that sounds hard.  I hope the time passes quickly, and that you get good news at the next u/s.

Hugs mama! 

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!
