I have felt so amazing this pregnancy compared to my others, and had really high hopes that I would finally get to just have a normal pregnancy.

Over the weekend, I had some preterm labor- ctx, a little bleeding, all that jazz.  I was able to stop it at home with some advice from my midwife, but I'm 3 cm now, and I'm on modified bedrest for the duration, and pelvic rest (even worse than the bedrest, imo, haha)...Ok, I get why it's reasonable.  Labor started after an orgasm, so pelvic rest is kind of a no-brainer.  We already know that I have more BH ctx if I'm running around all day, so having me run around less seems reasonable.  And it could be way worse.  It could be the full bedrest I did with my girls...with my second, they didn't even want me showering, just baths...still, i am feeling rather sad at the loss of the "healthy pregnancy' feeling and just kinda feel like I need a hug...

Oh, man! Big hugs to you. I know it sucks regardless, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can keep everything under control with moderate rest.

That sounds awful! I'm so sorry you have to deal with that. Did you go full term with your others? Is there family around to help out?

I went far enough with all my others, actually carrying each kid just a little longer than my last- 37+0, 37+1, and 38+4.  And my family is awesome...my mom is even doing part of my teaching time at my kids' school for me (I love her!).

I'm not stressed about the logistics...I've done this before and have made it work with small kids around.  It's not easy, but totally doable.  I'm just whiny about it.  It does not go well with my belief that pregnancy is normal and not an illness.  Anyway, I'm feeling better about it today.  I checked my cervix this morning, and it's actually closed some- score!!  That's never happened before; I have always dilated and then just hung out there (or slowly dilated more), regardless of what I did or didn't do.  I'm pretty excited about that smile.gif

thanks for the hugs and sympathy, ladies.  I really needed it.
