Bed rest.. Day 2

So, today is my second full day of modified bed rest. The doctor said that I am allowed to stand up to shower and to be on my feet for a limited amount of time. He told me to be very lazy.

I am still getting used to the idea of bed rest. I feel fine! I feel like I can do the dishes, laundry and clean the house but for me and the baby, I can't. I feel totally useless. I also feel bad for Michael. He told me if he works an extra 16 hours per pay period, it will make up for my lost wages. He works hard enough and now he is doing more. I hate putting extra burden on him. He says that he will take care of all the house cleaning but I feel like I can do those things. I hate just laying here while there is so much to be done before Caleb comes.

I did do some things today. I paid bills and I finally started on my thank-you notes for my baby shower that was in November. I can't believe that it took me this long to start them but I guess its better late then never.

That's about it. I have a breast feeding class today (Dr. gave me the ok to go) and my baby shower is on Saturday! Can't wait!

Have a great week everyone!

I know your pain, so to speak. Today is day 29 on bed rest also thanks to high BP. Mine was only 120/80 but the midwife wanted to be cautious. It does get a little easier, you start to not feel so lazy since it's Dr ordered. =) Now I'm only 2 days away from our Due Date and just praying she comes soon! Take it easy, rent some movies and get out some books you've been wanting to read!
