Hopefully taking it easy now can help prevent full-blown bedrest later! If you ever want to talk, I know a lot of us are here on bedrest, so feel free!

You can never be too conservative with pe mommies. My docs mantra was always bedrest is not the enemy, bed rest is our friend! LOL! I am happy to hear that things are going so well for you and that the bedrest isn't a burden right now. Good luck with the NST and let us know how that goes.

Welcome to "The Bedrest Club." We've got a Bedrest Buddies post going... so feel free to jump in with the rest of us. I'm glad your doc is being cautious and conservative. And it's great that you are doing so well at 31 weeks!! Keep us posted.

So my OB put tme on modified bed rest today!
I am a middle school math teacher, so I was getting worried that the days were too long and not being able to sit and relax when I felt I needed to were worrying me.

There is nothing "medically wrong". No high BP, no protein (not even trace today)- but the doc said given the severity of my last pregnancy it would not be too conservative to go out now. I start NST's next week too, so I am so happy with that decision.

What a relief! I know in a few weeks I will be twiddling my thumbs like everyone else on bedrest...but today I am counting my blessings!
