I just moved from NYC last Tuesday to Ga. I had to b/c of life situation. My hubby and I are separated so I had to move in with my mom temporarily. Such a huge transition for me, since I left home 20 years ago and the south. I'm VERY independent. But having short cervix and now a 34 weeks having contractions...I am forced to lean on people. The doc today said bedrest. Only get up to tinkle and shower. the thing is ... mom has hip issues, so I don't really have someone to wait on my every need.
Not to mention, I had made an appt. with my sister's ob 2 months ago...So today was the appt. Long story short, I went. The office manager said my "insurance" was not accepted...so I would have to come back in 2 weeks when it is OK. I said I'm high risk, short cervix and have not seen a doc since Feb. 27. I have to see if my baby is OK today. My docs in NYC gave me permission to travel and said 2 weeks without seeing a doc is fine but make SURE to be seen by today and continue making sure baby is growing. She is tiny so she has been monitored closely. Aside from me having short cervix. BREATHING.
I guess I need support even electronically. How can I ease this back pain?
I still need a carseat. I was planning to get one later this week. Now I'm stuck in bed. Luckily I went to a store before leaving NYC and know which carseat I want. But I just read about another one. So now, I'm not sure if I should order the Uppa baby car seat b/c I plan on getting the uppa baby stroller, later...can't afford it now. OR should I get the ORBIT car seat.
Help. She is probably going to be a tiny baby....
Praying she is healthy and stays inside a few more weeks. Praying for mental strength.
Wishing I were happily married in my own home with my partner. But that's just not the case right now. I know this is for some higher purpose, just a bit challenging right now.
I welcome your wisdom.
Love and light!
My partner and I split while I was preggers with our first. I ended up moving back in with my mom in a different city. Then got stuck on bed rest for nearly 3 months. I felt so alone. I hope you find some unexpected help, and that your LO keeps growing well in there for a few more weeks!
