However, having been a bedrester and knowing quite a few here...I'll stick to my guns and say..."It got me to 32-weeks gestation. I sincerely believe that without bedrest, I would have delivered my son much sooner.
While I agree that bedrest (especially started early) can be a financial and physical burden, I would gladly do it all over again.
Thanks for the article Jennifer!! I added it to my list of favorites!
