BED...REST...

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!

Bed rest....hate those words. I was put on bed rest the day before the twins were born, that worked well! I hope all goes well tomorrow, let me know if you need anything or help with the girls. REST!!!

I hope your next visit is good. This is what I hate about pregnancy-- all the drama and stress of getting that baby here healthy. I'll be thinking of you--we've done the low fluid and the chord around the neck, so I feel for you! I really would hate bed rest too but you don't want any regrets-- and it sounds like you're doing just that-- good job!!! You're such a good little mommy.

Yuck! That is no fun...but we will do anything for our little ones! I know you don't like to ask for help, but if you need ANYTHING, please let me know. I am always out running around anyway, and I would be glad to help, so DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK. :)

I hope everything looks great tomorrow! Maybe you just needed a break. Do what you need to take care of YOU and that new little guy! He'll be here before you know it! I'll be thinking of YOU!

Been there done that and it sucks! I couldn't wait to mop my own floor and do my own dishes, so I totally relate. Good luck! You will wish for a day of bed rest in a few months.

I am so sorry! Its funny because you always think that it would be so nice to just sit there and not have to do anything until it happens!
I am sure you are going stir crazy and is you need ANYTHING...COKE, CHIPS, BOOK, a PEOPLE mag., Let me know, I would love to help!

P.S. I have a few sisters that are dying to have you take their kids pics and me too...again...when you are back after that sweet baby is here safely, and you get some more rest!
