I went directly to hospital bedrest at 28 weeks and made it until 33 (almost 34 weeks) all in the hospital.

They told me to go on bedrest with Seth at about 32 weeks but I didn't really listen because I was young and dumb. They never really told me too with Brooks and Sylvia but instead to "limit my activity" which really wasn't possible with younger children at home all day. I got stuck on hospital bedrest at 31 weeks with Raleigh and 27 weeks with Randall.

Just when I went into the hospital. With DD#1 - 1 day before delivery, with DD#2 - 2-3 days before delivery.

First pregnancy I was put on hospital bedrest 3 days before delivery at 26 weeks. This pregnancy, I was taken out of work and allowed to work from home on bedrest when I was 19 weeks due to high bp's. I was put on complete bedrest and had to quit working at 26 weeks because my blood pressure was out of control. Then we had the hospital fiasco at 29 weeks with uncontrollable bp's and I was on hospital bedrest for 8 days. I am now 32 weeks and am on bedrest at home.

I started keeping my bp log as a Google Document so I could input #s from anywhere, at anytime. My doctor can also view the log online. That's been very helpful for when I feel nervous.

I was on bed rest the second time at 27 weeks because my platlets started to drop. Thankfully they never got any lower. My MFM thought it wasn't completely necessary, but my OB was insistant on it. She hates my job-I'm on my feet all day too. I also brought my BP monitor to work. They always wanted to see what my pressures were like at work. I did lots of reading and registered online.

I went on bedrest at 22w6d with Mason but my BP had been out of control for a week at that point so I probably should have been on bedrest a week earlier, of course I didn't know that then!
