21 weeks pregnant and on Strict Bed Rest

Ceren - posted on 05/13/2011 ( no moms have responded yet )




I am on strict bedrest i had a cerclage put in at 17 weeks, for the past week i feel like i felt the baby drop and am very paranoid my doc said that he felt the baby was low which is why i stuck on strict bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy, I had a premature birth in 2009 when i was 23weeks pregnant and my little angel only lived for 4days. I'm scared ill go through the same thing again, which is stressing me OUT!!! im so close to 23 weeks... Can anyone tell me what is the earliest you can deliver and the babies survival rate will be high???

I know a few babies have been delivered at 22-23 weeks and survived, but you already know that's rare.

All I can tell you is that when I was in the hospital being monitored at 24 weeks w/ twins they told me at 24 weeks the odds of survival are virtually 0%, but by 28 weeks it's around 80%... That was 9 years ago.

Hang in there!! TRY not to stress too much. My thoughts and prayers are w/ you and your precious little one!
