imagine your bed was tilted backwards by 7 or 8 degrees, and you shouldn’t get out of it, or even sit up, for a week.
or two weeks. or eight. or twelve.
these are the measures that my courageous wife is undergoing in order to stay pregnant. after two weeks of strict at-home bedrest, we continued to have complications that would lead to her delivering early, so she was transported and admitted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. she will stay at DHMC until the baby is born.
the nurses there (who are awesome, btw) call this backwards-tilt position “standing on your head.”
- today marks 25 weeks, 4 days
- carrie and edgar are both fine
- edgar is measuring correctly for this gestational age, no anomalies detected
- the tilt position seems to have stabilized the situation, but there are no guarantees
we’re taking it one day at a time.
