38+2 when I had a planned section, no sign of babies before then. I did deliver my second child at 24wks due to suspected incompetent cervix, so had a cervical stitch with the twins and put myself on bed rest as a result (fear!). Proof positive that even with a crappy cervix you can go the distance ipeven with two babies - and big ones at that lol xx
35 weeks and no bed rest (although miserable this past week and a half!). Was in L&D for the night on 2/11 for contractions but since I was at the 34 week mark they said it is too late for the steroids for their lungs and they wouldn't stop labor. Got sent home the next day and babies are still cooking.
I think bed rest all depends on your OB and MFM if you have one. Some dr's say the require bed rest at a certain point and others are fully against it. There is someone on here who was told they would be put on bed rest at 20 something weeks just because. That seemed crazy to us all but it's what the dr said.
Still pregnant, 32 weeks tomorrow. Put on restriction at 16 weeks because of a low lying placenta with baby A, which corrected itself by 27 weeks. Put on bed rest at 27w6d. I had a pre-existing back injury that was causing me agony, plus my cervix was shortening. No signs of preterm labour.
Babyduo has a thead with a poll that you should check out, it shows when people delivered and if they had NICU stays.
I had to have contractions stopped twice at 29 weeks, and now have medication to stop them at home. I am not on official bed rest but I have been told to spend most of my day laying around and not to push myself. The frequent rest is mainly because of the contractions but its also partly because baby B is small and has slower cord flow, but when I am resting its the best flow so more nutrients for him that way.
