Bedrest sucks. Seriously. I know that it could be so much worse so I feel bad for bitching. I really do. But i miss my kid. I want to do laundry. I just dont like feeling out of control and helpless. I know that I need to do whats best for the baby and I am okay with that, its just a temporary moment of suckiness in the big picture of it all. You know me though, I asked the Dr. if I could be up to scrapbook (sitting only and not for extended periods of time). So I have been working on a "proto-type" for my baby announcements. I am scanning them as I type, so I will add them to this post. **added**
Anyway... I go in Thursday cause I am in some pain. I cant describe it, it just felt like he wanted out, now. They check me, nothing. They do a cervical ultrasound, nothing. Well it did show that his head is basically sitting on my cervix, which would explain all the pressure. At this point I am feeling stupid because I went in cause of pressure. Then they did a non-stress test which showed that I was having contractions. I had to get a shot of some medication that made me very jittery and wait for them to calm down. Thankfully they did, and I was able to go home, to return on Monday, but to be on bedrest until then. So here I am. I think that the worst for me is that I just feel lazy. I dont like feeling like that at all, and it is upseting me. I also am feeling like I need to wash all of Chase's things, but I dont have the dresser painted yet, so I have no where to put them away. I need to wait until the appointment Monday, see what they say and then I can decide whether or not I really need to be freaking out like this. I did email one of the nurses that I used to work with (she works in the NICU now) just to get some insight on what to expect if he does come soon. The test I am having done Monday (fetal fibronectin) should help them to know whether or not I will deliver soon.... I will report back then..... :)

Yep. Thats Right. Still Pregnant.

So what week are we on now? Like 57? It feels like 92. In reality? 33. I am almost done. The end is near. The finish line is looming before us. I should consider myself lucky. I actaully have a set date. I know when this is going to happen. I get to go 12 days early. I really only have to make it like 38 weeks. The crappy thing is, you would think that I only have 5 weeks left, right? Nope. 6 weeks from yesterday. I cant wrap my brain around the counting of the weeks. Whatever. So. Here is a new belly pic. There is something in there. It wants out.

On a little nicer note.... we finally put up the pool! Can I just say, I LOVE the pool? I LOVE THE POOL. LOVE THE POOL! Its so nice to get in there, and float around without carrying all the "extra" weight. It just feels good. Riley really seems to enjoy it too. In fact, we came home after work today and got right in. I need to have Derrick take some pictures of her in the pool! Derrick doesnt swim, and since I am always in the pool with her, it leads to some technical difficulties.

Okay. Derrick is off playing poker, I want to scrapbook...
