For some women, the doctor recommends total or partial bed rest during their pregnancy. They may be at high risk for preterm labor or other complications, requiring them to reduce their activity level, stay away from stressful situations, and keep the baby inside as long as possible. If your health care provider orders a dose of bed rest for you - whether it's for one day or for the duration of your pregnancy - you might try these coping strategies to help accept the restrictions ...Read more

Probably fine: subchorionic hemmohage is very common early on. We wouldn't even know about it if not for high quality ultrasound. As long as the embryo's heartbeat is normal (around 120 bpm) I doubt there is any increased risk of pregnancy loss at all. This is different than a placental abruption which can occur in the third trimester where berest is often recommended ...Read more

Pretty common: This is called a subchorionic bleed and it's typically related to bleeding from the placenta. It typically resolves without incident, however, large bleeds can result in miscarriage. Either way, bed rest really doesn't do anything to help the situation. It's best to try to live your life as a normal pregnant women would. ...Read more

What can I do to enhance my sleep while on bed rest?

What can I do to enhance my sleep while on bed rest?

Bed Rest: The best quality of sleep is consolidated, which means in large chunks if time. Patients on bed rest tend to take short naps. Then they often suffer insomnia at night because they've had enough napping during the day that they really aren't tired. So, avoid daytime naps. Keep your mind occupied and active during the day...Read a book, play a game, work on a puzzle, write letters or journal. ...Read more

Is bed rest the best thing for back pain?

Is bed rest the best thing for back pain?

Not really: For acute back pain, bed rest can help. I do not recommend more than 24-36 hour of bedrest, since prolonged bedrest has its own complications (blood clot, pnuemonia, sores, bone mass loss, etc.). After a short course of bedrest, progressive increases in daily ambulation is recommended. A doctor visit may also be helpful. ...Read more
