So, some of you may be wondering how all of the sudden I’m able to blog again. Well, the doctor has ordered bed rest for me. What does that mean you ask? Well, that means I’m laying on the couch all day long. So, I have lots of time on my hands. This is only my first week and to be honest and I’m really not all that bored yet. I’m actually going to say this…today, I’m thankful for bed rest.
I know, for those of you who have been out on bed rest you are probably sitting there with your mouth open staring at the screen. But, for the past four days this little one has moved more than it ever has. So much so that I’m convinced that Andrew and I are about to be served some serious karma for what little craps we were when we were children. I mean how can one baby be this excited in the womb. I rarely go 1 hour without feeling a flip/jab/kick, something.
In four days, I haven’t had any of those “Oh sh*t!” moments I’ve been having for weeks. I would sit and wait…just wait for the baby to move. And nothing would happen. It happened the morning of my baby shower. It happened this past Saturday. The baby just wasn’t as active as it should be.
But now, I’m not stressed out. I’m not crying because of my job on a daily basis. I’m not staying at work until 8pm. I’m not stressing myself out with unreal expectations. I’m just relaxed. I’m fine. I feel…good. So yes, I’m thankful for bed rest.
I’m thankful for the time to just relax and not worry. I’m thankful for my doctor really knowing what is best for me and our child. I’m thankful for a break. I’m just incredibly thankful. And by the way, the baby is kicking right now. See, the baby is incredibly thankful as well.
So friends, what are you thankful for today?
