31 weeks

Well, here we are! We have officially scheduled the C-section (still breech!) for 34 weeks. Only 3 weeks left! The ease of counting down also means I am getting way more antsy.

30 weeks, hell yeah!

Excited to announce we have made it to 30 weeks and one day, exactly 7 weeks since my water broke! To quote a pregnancy week-by-week email update, "30 weeks, hell yeah!"
Unfortunately, there are still 4 weeks to go... I've done almost twice as much time already, but the fact that I can count on one hand how much longer I have seems to make it that much harder, but also that much more AWESOME.

Surviving the boredom of hospital bed rest

I'm currently completing my 6th week of hospital bed rest after my water broke early at 23 weeks.
The big question is, what are you supposed to DO all day?

Hitting the wall

Well, I'm done. It's hard to stay motivated when your short/long term goal has been met. 28 week is a great "out of the danger zone" time period. Unfortunately, I have also lost all interest in being here, so I keep thinking, "if she comes now, it'll be fine!" Which only makes life more frustrating.

Guest Post: Surviving hospital bed rest

I was asked to do a guest post to distinguish between home and hospital bed rest by Lizzy of Minnesota Night. She was on home bed rest for the same condition, but has graduated to "light activity!" Yay! She is also much further along than I am, so I am praying her journey from birth to going home is a short one.

It was fun to write! Update: open bottle of nail polish was tried this week and I survived.

Researching local NICUs

Well, it's week 26. Bleeding has pretty much stopped, however I am still losing amniotic fluid. The doctor said the chances of my rupture re-sealing are slim, so no plans to go home before Penny is born. On the bright side, I am looking pregnant again, and not because of my constipation, because I finally pooped Monday! However, my AFI is lower, down to 5.6, but I think this is because she moved last week. Still breech, just laying the OTHER way now. Silly girl.
