Bed Rest!

So after having contractions 5mins apart lasting for 30 seconds for the most part of yesterday, my midwife has put me on bedrest. Crap. I go to see the OB today, so I will see what she has to say, but considering I am only 35wks, they want baby to bake for at least another 2-3, and with packing up the house, its too much on me. Dh seems to think that the baby can come now, and that I can continue doing everything, but realistically, I can't! So now I have to figure out how to delegate everything as for packing/moving/cleaning/unpacking, and care for the kids.... I guess we'll just see what the OB has to say today, and go from there. I will do whatever it takes for baby to continue to bake and be healthy! But, crap! (as I type this with my feet up, my dh is currently taking dd to school, with ds tagging along!)

Oh NO! Last THursday was like that for me. Contrax got as close as 3 min apart. But no dilation (well a fingertip, but that is not much!! LOL) Doc said to keep feet up and take it easy. I had an appt yesterday and I am still a fingertip. Hope you can keep baby in a bit longer!!!

Aw MAN! That stinks about the bedrest. DH will have to step up, you need to keep baking another little while. Make those calls to anyone who asked you 'what can I do to help?' and try to rest. Good luck at the OB's today and KUP!

Oh no! Yes get help- call your friends and family with specific things that they could help with (cooked frozen meals, driving kids to school, etc....) A lot of us moms stick together, we now how it is!

I'm sorry you're on bed rest, but it's probably due to all of your moving/packing/unpacking that you've got going on right now! I hope your appt goes well, just remember to take it easy!
