what i'm look'n like for the next 2 weeks:

Laying down.
For TWO FREAKING WEEKS.
Bed rest.
I went in to the hospital today, thinking I might have leaked some fluid, nope just straight up peed myself.
But I was having contractions every five minutes and dilated to a 3.
Awesome (not awesome).
What does this all mean? Bed rest.

Remember how I have a 2 year old (well she'll be two in a week and a half!) and a 3 year old? They don't take to resting all day kindly.

Lucky for me, I married someone awesome.
Lucky for me, I am part of a church that is very involved and supportive.

Will I still go insane? Probably, but at least I know I'm taken care of.

Wish me luck k? Well, wish us all luck, we're going to need it.

Oh no! I'm hoping I make it to 37 weeks (in two weeks), but thankfully I am not on bed rest. I don't know what I would do even with the church's help. I hope everything goes well!

I have to say that I started laughing so hard when I read this about just straight up peeing yourself, only because I have been there and now exactly how that feels!
I have never had to be on bed rest and just the thought of it makes me anxious. I will be saying some serious prayers for you m'lady! You need to put out the SOS for any movies that anybody has so that you have variety to watch while on bed rest. Hang in there girlfriend!!

Oh my! Same thing happened to me! I still think I leaked fluid, but they insisted it was pee, but I seriously doubt it. They sent me home and the next night I started contractions for the next 36 hours or so until they finally gave me pitocin and a few hours later Berkeley was born! Good luck and good thing it is a girl in case she comes early, cuz I hear girls' lungs develop faster than boys!

Glad it's just for two weeks! Sounds like you've got a great support system in place with your ward and friends, which is awesome. Good luck staying sane ;)

sorry dude. I've just been catching up with you since I've been out of internet range all weekend, you've been busy. good thing you got all prepped before this bed rest crap came up. hey, and you mentioned something about mustard baby poop? dude one word- sunlight. wash it, don't dry it, but put in out in the sun. miracles do happen. love your guts.
