I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with my second child on bedrest with a short cervix. I was admitted to the hospital on January 29th and have been here ever since! My cervix is around 1 cm, which the doctors told me was very short and since i had a previous preterm labor I am at higher risk.
What's crazy is that I didn't know for 5 months that i was pregnant and my first son is just 10 months old so it was like a back to back pregnancy! I wasn't getting my period and i took a pregnancy test which came out negative so i thought i had problems because of my first pregnancy so I didnt really think about it. A few months went by still no period so i decided to go and check it out. Well i went and found out that i was around 22 weeks pregnant! They have given me the shots to help strengthen the baby's lungs and now I am just waiting for him to arrive, hopefully he makes it to full term! and i wont have another preterm labor.
I hope for the best with this pregnancy and that Anthony comes out healthy ! It also sucks being on bedrest away from home and my family and friends; I have a 10 month old at home with my fiance it can get very stressful not being home with them and missing out on things.
Just wanted to know if anyone has the same problem &. what they did to pass the timeee.
