As of Monday I am on modified bedrest. I'm only suppose to get up to use the bathroom and to take quick showers. I am 35 weeks along.
When I went in for my NST on Monday I was having contractions and didn't even know it. those contractions lasted for about 5+hours and kinda freaked the doctors out. I'm not dialated at all but they want the baby to cook for a couple of weeks more, hopefully, so I'm now flat on my back. If I do go into hard labor or my water breaks the baby might have to be put into the NICU for tender lovin care but there shouldn't be any major problems. The baby is very active, healthy and strong and I am getting really excited about meeting him/her.
So I better get back to my couch and chill out. Now I really wish I had a laptop. :)

Because of how big this baby is I am now wearing very stylishly a 3 inch wide elastic band that is suppose to support my stomach and ease my pain. It has helped to a degree but when baby wants to kick some ribs I am in agony. The only way for the pain to subside is for me to lay on my left side to take the pressure off.
So I have been put on a very restricted diet to help the baby's tummy to even out some and I have started on my NST's. If they see any fetal or mommy distress I will be thrown in the hospital to be taken care of.
My c-section has been scheduled for Friday july 18th, but Dr. Gardner has pretty much assured me that I won't make it that far. The bets are coming in that it will be around the first week of July.
So that is my update for now. Can't sit up very long or the pain in my ribs gets to bad.
I sure could use a laptop about now.......:)

So there is that recap. So far this week we have gone swimming once, twice including today, watched movies, played outside and trying to keep busy. I'm planning on making cookies, going to build a bear, arts and crafts, music and dancing. Kelly can sing most of Queens- We Are the Champions. So cool to see some of the changes that she is making. Oh and yeah we need to work on reading.
