bed rest - day 2

I am doing my best to keep a positive outlook and remain sane during this time...

I will admit it was nice to know that I didn't have to leave at 7:30am to go to work for 10 hours today...it's about 35 degrees outside! It's just very difficult to try to sit still! I'm behaving, though. It's given me a chance to have a heart-to-heart discussion with Elijah, too...it's time for him to at least START something here! If I go to my appointment on Monday and the doctor tells me again that I'm not dilated at all, I'm going to be pretty frustrated . While I was hooked up to the fetal monitor for the non-stress test, the tech and Adam both asked if I felt any contractions. Nope...and obviously if I'm having them, they're not very productive! So I told this little child of ours that it's time for him to make a decision to start working his way down. I haven't even dropped yet! Come on, Elijah! At least do that for me! I'm thinking that's what is making this whole "bed rest" thing a little trying for me...I still feel like I've got SO much time because nothing has happened so far. It's actually kinda freaky...I keep thinking I'll end up being one of those crazy talk show people who tells her story of how she didn't even know she was in labor until she was delivering her baby in the shower, on the toilet, in the car, in her sleep...no thanks! We need to leave that for the professionals! I don't think the cats would be very good nurses, either...they shed too much.

When I see my doctor on Monday, I'm telling him that it's his fault...he left town on the 4th and his first day back is Monday. I told him NOT to leave! Ok, I know it's not his fault but right now that doesn't matter to me.

I just spilled Kool-Aid on my shirt...red Tropical Punch on my white t-shirt...oh wait, it's Adam's white t-shirt! Good job, Sandy. I sure do miss having that washer and dryer in our last apartment! Oh well...maybe I'll just let the stain set in and keep it as a reminder of my journey through bed rest!

OK, I ate some lunch and now the baby's moving more. I feel better now...and a little sleepy. This is the ONE positive thing I have found about my "no work" order...I have been getting so tired about noon or 1pm every day for the past month. When I'm at work, I can't very well take a nap! So I think I will take a nap now...and everyone can wait in anticipation for my next entry. I have a little extra time on my hands so I'll keep you all updated on my progress...if not PHYSICAL progress, I can at least tell you about my progress toward the crazy lady ward of the hospital!
