February 25th

Greetings from bed rest! I actually got to leave the house twice today for my two appointments. We saw the specialist first who was pleased with the baby's ultrasound. He was practicing breathing and my fluid levels were up to 8. I'm glad to hear that since I have done nothing but drink water and lay around.

Later, at Dr. T's office, we had a non-stress test. We had to do it twice since the baby was being stubborn for the first round and didn't move much. I would have been more worried, but his little heart beat was very strong. Maybe he was just sleeping. He moved around quite a bit the second time, so we got a passing grade. Since the bed rest has helped my blood pressure, I have to stay on it for another two weeks. We are scheduled for a C-Section on February 25th, unless I go into labor before that.

It was odd picking my child's birthday. Everything is so different from how I thought it would be. I guess that's life, though. I think it will be easier getting through this next 2WW knowing the that I will finally get to hold my baby at the end of it.

Thank you so much for all of your comments. Bed rest is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Maybe I will start doing movie reviews.

Glad to hear things are going smoother! That does seem strange picking your babies birthday.

Bed rest does suck, but I am glad things are going smoother. As for things to do during bedrest--if you have any t.v. shows you are curious about you could Netflix them. Or start a scrapbook for your baby.

My son's birthday is 2/21--just remember, that's generally school vacation week! :-)

Also having to schedule a C-Section this time--it is kinda wierd to think that I actually pick the day she will be born.

Hang in there!!

I'm glad everything went well today! It is kind of neat picking out your kiddo's b-day! And my daughter was born Feb. 26th, so it's a great time of year to be born! Good luck getting through the next two weeks!

Aack! I'm such a bad bloggy friend - I totally missed all of this! Sorry! I hope that your 2WW wait goes smoothly and quickly. Movie reviews sound fun. :)

So happy to hear that you have been 'sprung' from the hospital! I am sure it has to be much more comfortable at home (not to mention better food). I hope the next couple of weeks pass quickly, yet quietly, and that your little boy will be in your arms in no time. :)
