I'm anxiously awaiting the letter in the mail letting me know when we're doing this fetal assessment thing so I can find out if I'm on bedrest for the next 5 months or not. I know it has to be before Oct 14th because that's when my next OB appt is, and she will tell me then what we're going to do. I'm a little nervous about being on bedrest (possibly) with a toddler.. This should be interesting. I'm sure we'll get through it if that is the case. Any suggestions for books to read?? I love books, and if I'm stuck in bed for months I'm going to do need something to do.

I'm also worried about missing Halloween.. If I'm on bedrest I wonder if I can sit in the car while C takes Skyler out for Halloween.. We're mostly driving to and from people's houses that we know (friends and family). Otherwise that's going to suck.

It's pretty unlikely that you will wind up on bed rest until there's a reason. You will have more frequent checks to measure the length of your cervix.

If it gets below 4cm then they will need to look at other options.

I don't know anything about bedrest, but I certainly hope you won't have to be on it.

I can't even imagine how the heck that would all work when you have a toddler to care for.

Either way, you'll work through it.

Plan for the worst - hope for the best.

Thanks Mrs. Spit! It's good to know this info. She also talked about doing progesterone. That's probably not until later too then right?
