I was on bedrest for 7 1/2 weeks (because my water broke) and then about week 5 my bp started rising and at 31 weeks 5 days they did an emergency c-section because of high bp and right after my son was born I got HELLP.

With my last baby, it was only about a week in the hospital before they delivered me.
With my other 5, we figured out that I have spent over a year on some type of bedrest, partial-complete.

I made it 5 days in the hospital before I had to deliver. I was doing well and then and my son was scoring 8 out of 8 on the biophysical ultrasound. On the fourth night my blood pressure shot up again. The next day my son scored 4 out of 8 and was hardly moving. The high risk doctor decided he had a better chance on the outside then inside. I delivered by emergency c-section at 3:00 a.m.

Yeah, I only got 8 days and then I was induced. I felt like my bedrest should have started way earlier...when the swelling first started to get severe. I was in agony for weeks, but kept working because it took so long for the other symptoms to develop and get my diagnosis.
