Iphone Photo Phun - Bed Rest

Taming Insanity
I just have a few photos to share today, since my view is a bit limited. After two days of contractions and general discomfort, I went in for my regular ob appointment and ended up spending quite a bit of my day being monitored in the labor/delivery ward to be sure that preterm labor wasn't happening. Long story short, the doctor was able to confirm that no active labor was taking place. However, since even light activity seemed to be stimulating contractions, she put me under strict orders to severely limit my physical activity and to sit/lie down whenever possible. Ha ha, says the mother of three incredibly active children. However, I really don't want this baby coming too early; so I am trying hard to rest when I can.
A wonderful friend was able to take the older two to burn off some energy at the pumpkin farm for the afternoon. This little guy got to spend the afternoon in bed with Momma. Thank goodness for Little Einsteins episodes on the internet.

And don't I look thrilled? In theory, putting my feet up and getting some rest time sounds great, but it's only been a day and it's already getting old. :)
Well, at least I can still blog. . .

  1. Oh boy! I really have to wonder what doctors are thinking when they order bed rest for a mom. Seriously?! You should have asked her if she was going to come watch your kids for you while you rested. :)

    Anyway, hang in there! I will be praying for you!

  3. For what it's worth, you LOOK great even though you may be getting antsy already.

    Putting your feet up really isn't as fun with kids shows in the background.

  4. Thank goodness for laptops, right? Hope you're able to get rest...you know, in between watching over three kids. I think doctors who order bed rest should be required to also provide you with care for your other kids. I mean, insurance would cover that, right? Right?

  5. With the twins I was on self-induced limited bed rest for the last couple of weeks BUT someone else (daycare) was taking care of the big brothers. Without that it would have been awful. I watch a lot of HGTV. Wish I had started blogging then!

  7. You are adorable! I hope that you can keep cooking that baby a little bit longer. I wish I would've had my blog and a laptop 6 years ago when I was pregnant! It would have made things a lot better for me.

    This study shows that progression of AIDS become rapid in
    the presence of negativity due to less social gathering and stress in life.
    They are no different than us, as people who are loved and cherished by thier families.
    While wasting your time watching something marginally funny
    may actually frustrate you, watching truly hilarious movies and shows is an easy way to get laughter into your life whenever
    you need it.

    Don't put limits on what you eat as much as you do how much you are eating. It is important that you realise that if you do miss one of your exercise sessions it is not the end of the world. If you have never exercised in the morning, then we urge you to try it at least for one week.

    Far too many children become the victims of abuse, neglect,
    or abandonment and then sadly, often they become wards
    of the court who will eventually determine their fate. " Earlier today some cruise ship struck land in Alaska. Thus they can choose from the many available sources.

    Now people can watch all that they want to in a number
    of clicks. But be sure to have the old removed first; otherwise the new will not come into
    play. It is also time to start thinking about
    how you want your My - Space page to look for the holiday.

    Small women are believed to find it more complicated to use fat than larger women as they have
    got a smaller calorie need. My grandma can really feel vindicated at such a claim,she's been saying this all my life. Smoking can affect your health and fitness since it affects all the bodily functions and damages vocal cords and skin.

    The new tablet would be a further extension
    of these concepts and yet another step into the future
    of computing for Apple. This glass would cost less than
    $1000 and would be available to almost all the people in Britain.
    I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party) which is part of
    Neothink.
