I am currently on bedrest, but not for preeclampsia. Last Thursday I went into MFM for a growth scan, and found that I have a shorten cervix (2.4cm) and after being admitted, I found that I was having contractions every 10 minutes, which I could not even feel. I was released from the hopsital on Saturday and I am on bedrest and medication to keep the contractions at bay.
Good news is that the baby is growing great and no signs of PE or IUGR like Abigail was at 23 weeks. He actually scanned in at 24 weeks. I am praying that the bedrest will keep the pre-term labor at bay for at least another 8 weeks and of course, PE just stays away!
