Going to bed, but not because I'm tired

Extreme pain on Thursay night and some spotting landed me in triage on Friday then landed me in bed until the baby comes.

Yep,as of today, I'm officially off work with frequent bed resting. Nice. I've already called work 4 times to see what's going on. I'm a freak I know. It's more like a control freak, I'm afraid of other people not supporting my staff the way they're used to with me, which is ridiculous, because I'm not there to do anything about it and I just don't know why I care so much. Can we say work-a-holic???

Friday we went to the hospital per our doctor's request and we were checked out and sent home. Still all closed up, baby's heart rate was great, mom is huge with fluid and simply having contractions. The kicker about our pregnancy is that when something happens, such as a large contractions like that, they immediately tell me to go to the hospital because "ours is not a normal pregnancy." So we're told every time we see a doctor or nurse. I'm still waiting on that room at the hospital reserved just for us because we're there so much...

This morning was another non-stress test and baby did fine. Giving the highs and lows with the heartrate that let us get on our way in 30 minutes rather than the usual hour.

So, I'm home until baby arrives, which we're told could be any day because of all the fluid we have. We are measuring 42 weeks now and I feel every week of it. I'm exhausted for absolutely no reason at all and I live for my next chiropractor appointment tomorrow. It's the only thing saving my back. And it's the only time I get to have some "tummy time" :)

Since the doctors say it really could be any day, I'm going to wish for the baby to come, any day now!!!

Happy Monday!

    I have been "lurking" long enough. I am just so excited that you get to experience all of this!! The time flew by so fast! (or is that just me). You went from am infertility blog to a Soon-to-be-Mommy blog, something I don't see that often. Congratulations again!!

    Oh my gosh, you poor thing! I was on "bedrest" at the end of my pregnancy b/c of possible pre-eclampsia but I was so not good at it. I still walked all over b/c I was going crazy!! So I totally understand what you're going through. At least you can blog more, YAY!! :) I always get excited when I see that you've posted.

    I know how frustrating bed rest can be, but get all you can now because once the baby is here she'll be keeping you up all hours!! LOL... Seriously, I hope your wait isn't too much longer....
