Super Bowl Baby?

Could we be having a Super Bowl Baby?!

Possibly...only this little guy knows for sure.

Im 37 weeks today so I went for my weekly dr appt this morning. There was no change in dilation from last week, still 3cm. But the doc said," He is very low and I can feel his head." She then proceeded to ask if I was preregistered at the hospital, if I had a pediatrician, a car seat...all those kinds of questions. And then she says " With this being your 3rd baby and you are already 3cm this is going to happen fast. If your water breaks or your contractions get regular or painful, head straight to the hospital. You can call but Im going to tell you to get to the hospital and get thre fast."
And here is the bombshell statement form her, " Go ahead and make a appointment for next week, if you make it."

Holy moly batman!!!!! If I make it to next week?! Does this mean she thinks I will go into labor tonight? Tomorrow? The weekend?! Maybe...who really knows....only one person knows and he isnt doing any talking right now... ;)

I hate to use a famous quote but...all that comes to mind is..."Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty we are free at last!"

I am free from my bedroom, free from bed rest, free from medication to stop labor, and free from home monitoring!!!

I have never been so thrilled! I know lots of people said.."Oh enjoy bed rest while you can"...or "well you still need to take it easy once you are released", but you really have no idea how hard bed rest is on your emotions and on your body until you have experienced it. My muscles ache from laying down so much. Walking is a little difficult but not because of labor pains or baby, but because of how weak my muscles are from not doing anything for 3 weeks!

The first thing I did after my doctor appt? Treated myself to lunch at Jason's Deli and then of course a trip to target....just to get out and walk was so nice! I even just drove around some today because it was nice to be out in the "real" world.

So anyways...I'm off bed rest ( BTW I am 3cm dilated) and you all can start placing your bets for when I will go into labor....DH says 10 days from now...what do you think?

Well, the doctor appointment yesterday did not go as well as I had hoped.

Unfortunately I am posting this blog from the not-so-comfortable anymore comfort of my heard me right...still on bedrest...

There was no change in dilation, but the doctor wants me to get this baby to 36 weeks at least. She said her ideal goal would be 37 weeks, but she would be ok with a 36 weeker...

So needless to say I have been pretty upset since the appointment yesterday. yes I know its what is best for the baby...I know this...and I know I don't have a choice but this is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Sit on my rear(or lay around) and do nothing. The kids are now being affected by this change...their routine is all out of wack and you can pick up on it..their behavior is changing and that is what is the hardest for me. I know what needs to be done to correct it, but I can not do it. I am not a controlling person but I feel like I am...well..basically..out of control and I do not like it.

Next appt is Thursday...6 more days.....I will be 36 weeks..she will take me off bedrest....and we will have to wait and see if this baby still wants to go ahead and come out early or if he wants to wait it out till his due date....

In the home stretch...

At least I like to think so.

I had a dr appt today...luckily there was no change in dilation. Not so lucky...that means more bedrest.

My next appt is next Thursday at 10:20am. As long as nothing happens before then(more regular contractions, bleeding, more dilation, water breaking) they will adjust my bedrest restrictions where I can get up more and do a little more...and if labor starts after that then so be it. They will do nothing to stop it.

So there is a end in sight....lets just hope this last week of bedrest is not one of the longest weeks of my life!

Home...on bedrest....

SO, my last post involved letting you all know I was in the hospital.

Well, no baby was born, thankfully...since it is a little early...and I was released yesterday around lunch.
I have been put on bedrest. I can get up to go to the bathroom, shower...those kinds of things...but pretty much all I can do is sit or lay in this bed and do nothing.
I cant even begin to explain to you how much this is killing me. I hate to sit still like this. I know most of you are thinking, I would love to be told to sit on my rear all the time and do nothing....but just sounds good at first...when you have to actually do it....its not so great. I was done sitting in a bed when I was in the hospital...and now that Im home...I want to get up...I have so much that needs to be done before this little boy does actually come into this world...and I can not do one thing!!! My husband, God Bless him, has taken up so much of the slack around here....I feel horrible that I can not help him....but he hasnt made a peep about it. It has to be done, but I cant help but blame myself for this. Had I done what people had told me all along, "take it easy" then none of this might of happened. And now...look...Im stuck in this bed, expecting all these other people to pick up after me...and I hate it.
