I had to stay in the hospital yesterday and today. My cervix is short and I was cramping. They were worried I was in preterm labour. I'm home now but very limited in what I can do.
Can everyone please send thoughts and prayers?

hey mama, from a dec mommy who has been on bedrest from august, you have all my thoughts. i hope your condition reverses itself (that happens, often) and if it doesnt i really recommend teh community at sidelines.org
they've been invaluable to me in a time of bedrest. you have to hunt a bit on the site to find teh chatroom, but its mamas who have had every condition you can think of and are an amazing souce of love and info.

Sending good vibes. Have you heard of magnesium supplamentation? When I went into PTL last time at 25 and about 30 weeks the hospital gave me a massive dose of magnesium to get the contractions to stop. It worked, but it is nasty stuff in high doses (nausea, hot flashes, dizzyness, ick). This time I have been taking a calcium/ magnesium liqud supp and it has kept my irritable uterus under control for the most part. I get maybe 3-4 good, hard contractions a day instead of the 5+ an hour. In my research i have found many people stating how effective it can be, even to putting off regular labor (which is why they suggest stopping supps at about 36 weeks).

Look into it and heres hoping for an uneventful rest of your pregnancy!

W (26) and C (27) parenting G (11/06 ) and D (2/09 ) plus a new one (3/11)
Sometimes the greener grass is actually AstroTurf, a false promise and nothing more.
