Bed rest since 21 weeks...

Anyone on meds for preterm labor prevention?  I was diagnosed with Incompetent Cervix at 21 weeks and put on bed rest, Procardia (Nifedipine) 10mg every 8 hours and 17P Alpha Hydroxyprogesterone injections once weekly till 36 weeks.  I am now 27 1/2 weeks, and very tired of "resting" but I know I need to do it for my baby.  Anyone experience any side effects with these meds?

I was put on bedrest at 12 weeks for incompetent cervix and had a cevical cerclage placed at 15 weeks ( a stitch to keep my cervix closed) take a look at my profile......I am now 33.4 wks and my dr. has allowed me to get out the bed and move around ( at 30 weeks).....I went through a period of depression from the bedrest, but it had to be done and it worked, I have passed two big milestones......I have not had to take any meds for preterm labor, but can relate to the bedrest.....just know you are so close and it will be over b-4 u know it......soon you will be holding your baby in your arms....I am praying fr you and if you need to talk send me a PM
