Not sure I know where to start. I am seeing my regular OBGYN and the high risk preg. dr every two weeks. They put me on modified bed rest at 14 weeks and said I could get up to go to the bathroom. That is not really happening. There is so much to do and I am not even doing housework. I feel fine other then the muscles in my lower abs and into my legs are really sore. Do you think this is the reason for the bed rest so early? I think I have been a bad girl, but I am really trying to take it easy. They said full bed rest at 20 weeks. Is that not a little early? How do I get lunch etc if I am home alone and on bed rest? What do you do?
I haven't gained any weight yet and it worries my, but the Dr doesn't seem to be worried. What have your experience been with this at 17 weeks? I am pretty average in size, I guess the babies are growing ok. I eat when I am hungry and I drink lots of water - I am always thirsty.
When do you feel them move around? I am excited about this. I have more questions, but I will space them out a bit.
