Bed Rest????????????

Well, today was a bit of an adventure for Mama. It was check-up day with the doctor for new baby and of all days, Mama's blood pressure was a little high. So the doctor that was filling in for the regular doc sent her over to the hospital for something called a non stress test. The hospital said that the baby looked great and was very active, but Mama's blood pressure only came down when she was resting. So, the hospital sent her home with strict bed rest orders. Now I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound too fun to me and I think Mama's pretty upset about it too. She goes to see the doc next Thursday and hopefully things will be looking up, but for now she is going to have to rest, rest, rest. I don't really know how she's going to do that because I'm really a handful these days. I don't like to stay in one place. I like to go flying around the house and I like to move around from place to place. We'll just see about this bed rest thing Mama. I'll try to be good, but I think we're going to have to break the rules every now and then and get out of bed!!!! We'll keep you posted!!!

Update On The Baby!!!!

Well we're 20 days and counting to the due date of Itty Bitty Bug-a-boo!!! Mama is hoping that baby comes early as the miserable moments of pregnancy have set in. Swollen feet & ankles, tiny bladder, humongous tummy and no sleep.....not the ingredients for the most happy woman in the world. I'm trying very hard not to complain, but I am definitely hoping for an early delivery. My doctor, however, thinks that this baby will be right on time. So far no dilation and no baby in sight at the moment. Plus, our doctor is going wild pig and boar hunting in Texas until the 29th of the month so he asked me to just lay low and wait for his return and then we could talk about having this baby. UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

So, the waiting game is on. We'll keep you all posted on baby and how we're doing with the waiting in the coming days. Thanks for your continued prayers for energy and rest during these miserable and long days!!!! I guess we shouldn't look at them as miserable because we have such an exciting outcome to look forward to........God give us the strength to endure!!!!!
