I am on bedrest at home and can only get up to go to the bathroom and take a quick shower. I am also on progesterone suppositories. At my appointment on Monday, they found my stitch still holding but I was funneled to stich with bag bulging to stitch too. Doc says biggest risk is water breaking from pressure.
I have intermittent contraction throughout the day and generally feel uncomfortable in my low uterus when I move around. This baby is also very active, which seems to make it worse.
I am very concerned about taking anymore medications. But also very concerned about having this baby too soon. My anxiety is getting the best of me and I am constantly worried about my water breaking or my contractions dilating my cervix. Guess I'm just looking for some encouragement. I have so far to go...
I'm not sure I can offer anything but a hug!
Encouraging words: a lady in my office told me about her birth (~12 years ago) when she was ~24 weeks and while very scary at the time, her 12 year old daughter is alive and well and wonderful today.
Easier said than done, but I'd try and stay as relaxed as possible so to not put any "extra" stress on your uterus (you know how when you're stressed, your physical body is also tense?)
I'm sorry I couldn't help more.
