The dreaded "B" word

The last week and half have been interesting ones at our house. Last week, we found out that there were some problems developing with my pregnancy. Not with the baby, she's healthy and growing just fine. The problems are with me and my ability to carry the pregnancy full term. The doc put lots of restrictions on me and said to be careful and he'd check me again in a week. I was VERY careful for the next week and went to see the doc again on Tuesday. Well, things had gotten worse. Not drastically worse but enough that I am now on bedrest. Ugh. That means I have to be laying down all day except for short periods of time like meals and other essential activities. No going anywhere except the doctor. For the next 10 weeks. Sound like fun? Oh, and did I mention that Joe is out of town? Like I said, it's been an interesting week! Luckily, I have amazing family and friends who have rallied round to help me out. Thanks everyone!

This isn't unfamiliar territory for me, but that last time I had to do bedrest I only one child and we were living in my parents basement. This will be a little different.

So, I imagine I'll be posting on here more in the next few months...using the laptop is one of the things that I can do safely from the couch!

Oh my! It's going to be a LONG ten weeks. However, it's all for a great cause, so totally worth it :-)

Congrats on the baby girl coming! Good luck with bedrest. That must be hard.
