Those are two words that I never thought that I would hear.
Now first of all let me just say that I am more than willing to do what ever it takes to get this little baby here safe and sound!!

With that being said...

Bed Rest sucks!!

After a normal visit to the Doc last week, he wasn't happy about a 1 cm growth after 3 weeks.
So off to the hospital we go to have another ultrasound.
The baby is growing just fine. He looks healthy and happy! Yea!!
But the fluid around his little body is too low...
and he has wiggled and moved until he has a cord wrapped around his little neck, twice...

So back to the Doc we go...
His words...
"I am not going to say Bed rest,
but I want you to do only what you have to do!"

He asked me if I have been doing too much,
"Umm, yes, I guess."
I have been running 4 to 6 kids around everyday.
I have been still doing photoshoots.
I have been doing a million other things.

"Well now its time to STOP," says my husband!

I hate HATE relying on others... I hate having to ask for help...
I hate having to watch my mom clean my house!
But I am and it sucks...

On a good note, Coco and I finally got to watch New Moon on Saturday.

While my husband took the girls golfing all day!

I haven't had to cook dinner or go to the grocery store. Which is sooo nice!

We go back to the Doc tomorrow, have another ultrasound, and a non-stress test.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything looks okay, so that I can get ready for this little baby!

I have the best grandparents...

It's true!! I really, really do.
Now some may think that I am bias. See, I only have this one set of living grandparents. But who would need any more. Anyone else would pale in compairison to them. Let me tell you why...
Yesterday was a awful, horrible, very bad day. I had a horrible weekend. I felt sad.
I cried a lot. I am blaming it on a lot of different circumstances, pregnancy hormones, the gloomy weather, me falling down like a clumsy idiot...
I really could go on and on... but I won't!
Yesterday it just got worse. I felt like I couldn't breath. I felt like just crawling in bed and giving up!
And then I got a phone call from my grandma.
Now I think that we are in tune, in perfect sync.
How did she know that I needed to talk to her?
How did she know that just hearing her voice was going to make me feel better?
I don't know how she knew, but I am sure glad that she did.
The minute I heard her voice, the tears started rolling down my cheeks. And she knew... and I told her about my horrible weekend. And I cried and she cried. And then we laughed, we laughed when I told her about me falling down, because it really was funny! And we laughed, a lot, when she asked about the puppy and I told her that I stepped in her poop with my bare feet the night before!
And then she told me that she loved me and that she missed me. And then she told me that she made my baby boy 2 baseball blankets. And then she gave the phone to my grandpa and he told me that he loved me and that they can't wait to see us! He told me that everything will be okay and that it was 78 degrees where he was...(but I am not sure if that made me feel better;)
And then I made him promise to have my grandma home when I went into labor.
And He said that he would.
You see, with both of the girls, my grandma was with me the entire day while I was in labor. With Aniston she helped me clean my house, she wanted me to lay on the couch, but I insisted that we clean instead. And with Emerson we were shopping in Walmart. She thought that I was going to have her in the grocery isle, but again I insisted that I get everything on my list, because I wasn't going to get to shop for a week or two.
And then we hung up and I felt like I could breath.
I felt so much better. Things really didn't seem so bad.
You see, they really are the best!!
I love you both and I can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!!
Thanks for making my day not so bad!!
And just for them, I am announcing that I am OFFICIALLY on maternity leave. I am only doing a few photography sessions over the next few weeks and then I am done.
