Bed rest

Well, I let my doctor know what has been going on in the past week since being admitted to the OB.  She checked me and said that I'm dilated to 2 and my mucus plug is pretty much gone.  I am now on bed rest for the next two and a half weeks until I reach 37 weeks.  She said when I reach 37 weeks I can do jumping jacks for all she cares.

Just thinking that I will most likely have my baby girl here in two and a half weeks is amazing!

I am so stressed though.  The soonest my mom can get here is the 19th of July.  I'm praying that the Lord will help Zoe to wait that long before my water breaks.  I don't know what I would do without my mother. I know women have children without their moms all the time, but I just can't imagine going through something so amazing and life-changing without her support.

I am not doing anything stupid.  I will be on this bed rest and not get up for anything but to use the bathroom!  I know it will be hard, but having my mom here and a healthy baby is worth it.

So here I am.  Watching I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant.  Ha!


  1. Glad that you let your dr know what has been going on. Praying that God works it all out and for a safe, healthy delivery.

  2. Relax and let people take care of you... Once you become a Mom, it all ends :O) I am LEAVING WA on the 19th... I will be there the 20th. Watch every movie you own and have Paul pick up some at Red Box... Read a book... Work on your baby scrap book... Take up knitting...

  3. Praying for you!! Hang in there and REST!! Love you!!
