Bed Rest, Day Two

The past two days have consisted mainly of sleeping (and as an insomniac, that doesn't go real well), watching TV, playing video games and reading magazines. Now if I were someone else I would think, 'Man that sounds like a vacation.' What I didn't consider when preparing for bedrest was the extremely sore back and muscle from laying still, the inability to do ANYTHING for myself, the lack of showers, the complete boredom. It seems to me that if I knew that I COULD get out of bed, this all might seem a lot easier, but the confinement really gets to you. My husband has been a champ, my niece has been here on and off to be my nursemaid and my Mom has been a huge help. I am just so anxious to get my five minute shower tomorrow.

On a more positive note I am so unbelievably excited to be this close to finding out if any of the babies are going to stick. In my mind I have these three babies who are working very hard to hold on and find a nice place to burrow in. I know the likelihood of all of them implanting is less that 3%, but the chances that at least one will stick are pretty high. I can't wait til this 2ww is over.

Good luck, i'm expecting my first child; and i wish you all the blessings from God. Live up the bed rest, my lady, i know its tiring not doing anything but it sure beats being so busy you can barely breathe!

I'm so excited for you. I can't wait to find out the end result of this. This 2ww is going to be extra long.

Bed rest certainly isn't much fun, especially for someone as "on-the-go" as you normally are. Glad you've got good nursemates. Wish I was there to come chat and use up some of your time! I'll keep my fingers crossed for one to stick, will be excited if you get a "bonus" one or two! Love ya.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
