Bed Rest: Redefined

Posted Sep 11 2009 4:58pm
Just when I thought I was on strict bed rest, it got worse. My bed
rest "privledges" that I had before are now a thing of the past. I
called the on-call doctor this evening, because I was having some
cramping. Due to all my recent complications, they told me to come in
to get checked out. I got an ultrasound, and the babies look great.
They all weigh between 12-13 oz. and their fluids are good. My cervix
on the other hand is shrinking. I am now admitted to TGH for most
likely the remainder of my pregnancy, AND I have to lay slightly
inverted to relieve the pressure on my cervix.

As I lay here with my feet elevated above my head, I can feel my nose
getting stuffed up, and the crackers and chocolate milk that I just
ate, not settling well. I' m also contemplating how I will go to the
bathroom and eat. This is really going to be tough, and I am just
about at my breaking point.

I' m going to try and get some rest now. What a fun way to spend
Valentine' s Day!
