PR: Porcardia and update

I had asked on the bump about anyone having taken Porcardia (to stop contractions) and got a couple replies.  They said that it will give you a massive headache that should only last the first 2 days.  They were soooooooooo right.

I stayed home as a result and had a taste of full on bed rest (as opposed to "modified" as I am now).  It is not fun.  I want to really take it easy so I can keep the baby in and not have to go on full bedrest - so I can work up until I'm ready to have him.  Here's hoping . . .

I have not had more than 2 contractions an hour so all is good so far and hopefully the medicine does what it's supposed to.

Hope everyone else is having a good Friday night!  I'm going to be sitting on a chair watching DH put together baby stuff and organize.

  • Rest up, girl. I hope that headache goes away SOON!
  • I'm sorry you hear you're on bed rest. :( Take it easy and I hope the contractions stop!! Have a good weekend!

  • I was on it with my second.  The headaches go away faster than with trib.  But I had more contractions with the porcardia.  Good luck, I was able to keep #2 in until his due date and it made a world of difference!

  • I had to take procardia and the headache is killer but it does go away in a few days. Take it easy, drink tons of water and tylenol, although it doesn't help that much.
