Day 4

I thought this was going to be the pregnancy that never ended simply because everything was going so well. I have only gained 16 pounds, I've had low blood pressure, no gestational diabetes, everything was right on track. Well things were going so well that I started joking with my boss that these babies weren't coming early at all. They'd probably come late.

Then Friday came....I had gotten up and started to get ready but I would have to take breaks every 10 minutes or so because I felt winded and my belly started to get hard. I got to work and sat down to start working. The contractions weren't going away. I drank a lot of water and went to the back to lay down. The contractions weren't calming down so I called my doctor. She wanted me to head into the hospital to see what was going on.

Long story short, and three hospital visits later I am on bed rest. I am on day 4 of bed rest and already counting down the days. I wasn't ready for this and feel so helpless. Taylor has been great and really tried to take over everything, but the hardest part is not figuring out what to do with my days but letting someone else take complete care of me and things I feel I should be doing.

Here's to at least 4 more weeks of bed rest.... May it pass quickly!!!

Sneak Peak

Here's what I'm working with...Progress IS being made, despite this big belly trying to hold me back. Once it is all "done" I will post more pictures, but I just wanted to give you a sneak peak!

Also a big thanks to all who pointed out modern looking cribs for cheap. We finally agreed on some, and got a killer deal.
