I too have been following in the background but for some reason have found it hard to share.
I'm so glad @kiki1 that everything is ok and hope things are not too stressful now.
@Heyside I'm so glad you went to wazza and have started on the new protocol, I really am hoping this cycle is the one for you!
@Ladydee congrats on your beautiful little man, I was so happy to read of his safe arrival and hope you are enjoying all the snuggles.
Things have been a little tougher than I thought it would be and I've found it hard to share my thoughts with anyone really! Since I had the bleed at 20w and started contracting, I was on bed rest for 3 weeks and then went back to work to a desk job for only 6 hrs per day. I was so glad as it kept me from going insane! At 27w I started having contractions again and went on bed rest for another few days where nothing at all happened. So I went back to work and 2hrs in I started contracting every 3 mins that were lasting 90secs and we're pretty strong. I headed to labour ward to be monitored and the preterm labour continued for over 10 hours - even after all the medications to try and stop it. My parents were in Europe and DH was stuck in surgery and I prob didn't tell him the full truth so I sat there most of the time by myself.
Anyway they eventually managed to stop it and I started on meds 4x/day to stop the contractions cause they kept starting every time I got up. I was in hospital for a week and then allowed home on bedrest and I am now 32w. The constant contractions and inability to do anything has been driving me nuts (and made me more than a little cranky 😊) and my stomach is so ginormous it's quite uncomfortable. I feel like I should be so grateful to even be pregnant as it was such a struggle to get here but tbh some days I find it a struggle.
I will endeavour to post more often as I often think about you ladies and want to cheer you on xx
