Hi Deepti,since you have bad history in the recent past,i would have to agree with your doctor. You do need rest as much as possible along with the injections. Its not like to have to stay in bed all day,but you cannot work long hours,do heavy work,bending,starining etc. I would advise you to consider your doctor's advice since your complete history is known to her.

Welcome to HCM,
It is important that at what time of pregnancy you had abortions.
At least you have to take rest till this period is over.
Continue the tyreatment advised by your Obst.
Afterwards your Obst. will examine and doing ultra sound and will advise accordingly.
Ok and bye.
