Bed rest bites!



Well, I'm about 34 weeks pregnant now -- 6 weeks away from my due date -- and I have been on bed rest for preterm labor for 5 weeks already. I am really close to going stir crazy!!! For all of you that think that staying in bed day in and day out -- never going to work, church, never even going outside -- sounds like it would be a fun time, let me tell you now -- it is NOT fun! But I only have 2 1/2 more weeks of bed rest, then they'll take me off the contraction-stopping drugs I'm on, and if I go into labor, they'll just let me! So at least an end is in sight!! :) My belly is getting HUGE now; Steve talks to my belly like it's a seperate entity -- "Hi, Sam; Hi Ollie; Hi huge belly; Hi Baby!" He has also taken a liking to calling me "the fat lady" -- very endearing, don't you think?! :) He says it very lovingly, of course! These pictures were taken about a week before I had to start bed rest, so I am MUCH larger now -- which is good, because that means he's getting bigger too :)

I am so excited to get to see your little family through your blog! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Being a mom is great!

Yeah a blog, I am so excited. I am also so excited that you are having a baby and a boy, boys are great to have first. Although you may not think so because you had a crazy older bro, j/k. Anyways, glad the baby is still in you and good luck with everything. by the way I love the name Grayson, so cute.

Well, at least you know how I feel at the beginning of bed rest. You are so lucky to be at the end. I can't wait to see your baby. Can I mush him?
