before i start. i dislike the new boards! so i went to my 32 week appt. & was complaining of some pressure. my doc. did a ffn to see if it will be likely she will come within the next two weeks. & she checked my cervix by ultrasound. my cervix is really short & think & my ffn came back positive. so the next day she admitted me to the hospital to give me some meds & steroids to help baby girls lungs develop for when she comes. the also sent me home with @ home contraction prevention meds.

while i was there i ended up going into preterm labor again with contractions every 7 to 9 mins. they gave me a couple shots to stop the contractions & got sent home. next day i went back to get the second dose of steroids & everything was fine. till the next day at my follow up appt.

the meds they gave me were not working & i was still having contractions as i was in the office for my follow up so doctor gave me another ultrasound of my cervix which thinned out quite a bit more then the last time she checked. i was admitted back into l&d when my contractions were getting worse. they kept giving me shots to stop the contractions which didnt work so they changed the meds & finally got them stopped!

soo i am at home now on bed rest bored out of my mind but feeling better. i am on 32 weeks & need my baby girl to cook some more! hopefully she makes it till at least after the baby shower on march 14!

thanks for listening!

We'll be bed rest buddies LOL. I was put on bed rest last week. I have been in L&D 3 times with preterm labor and got it stopped all 3 times. I'm a little bit ahead of you at close to 36 weeks but our babies do need to hang a little longer. I have found coloring (LOL) a new thing to do. I went to Michaels and got the "designer" type coloring book and I enjoy it. I hope your LO hangs out in there longer and the bed rest works for you. Get some rest (boring I know) and find new creative things to do.

Ugh I HATE the new boards too. Terrible..I guess WebMd wants to be the exact opposite of all of the other successful message boards out there.
I couldn't even tell it was you that posted this.

I am so sorry!! I went in last with contractions but two shots later they stopped. However, I wasn't dialating with them at all. Hang in there.
