Hi ladies, I'm new here and was wondering if anybody could shed a little light on what bed rest really means. I went to see my doc yesterday. I'm 16 weeks pregnant , yesterday during the scan the doc said he could see signs of the beginning of funnelling. My cervix is 3.5 cm. This is my fourth pregnancy, I lost my first at 9 weeks , and the second and third both at 20 weeks...devastating. Nobody really knew why it was happening. So I decided to change my ob/gyn and he was really the first to really want to help and get to the bottom of things. So since I fell preg I have regular scans and check up to try and avoid , infections etc. So while I felt a bit sad and scared that oh no..not again...I felt hopeful that at least perhaps we can do something to prevent another devastation. I'm carrying a little girl, I'm so desperate for this sweet little one to make it. So he as scheduled for me to ave a cerclage this Friday. I'm wondering if there are moms out there who have gone through this with joyous happy endings. What did bed rest really mean, des it mean sitting down all day or lying down or just gently littering around te house with minimal lifting. I don't work so I'm used to being home. Please also pray for us that this time it will be our turn too to hold our happy healthy baby. Thank you all.
