Sitting and Sitting and Laying and Sitting...

Well, this is week 2 of bed rest. A week ago today I noticed I was bleeding pretty bad. I called the doctor and they immediately had me come in for an ultrasound. We went in and the baby is doing just fine and has a strong heartbeat. We even saw it moving around and at just about 13 weeks it looked like a little baby. What a relief that the baby was fine and the heartbeat strong. But apparently I have a low lying placenta, which means that the tip of the placenta is touching my cervix and when doing to much it can rub against it and make me bleed. Hence, the doctor has put me on bed rest for 2 weeks. I am going stir crazy doing nothing! I was doing better and yesterday I started bleeding. Kyle is working late all this week and has meetings at night so my parents came last night and brought the kids and me back to their house for the week.

I am soo sorry! I had 3 month of strict bedrest with my girls pregnancy (4 weeks in the hospital) and was told that I can get up to fix by boys (then 4 1/2 and almost 3) a PBandJ sandwich IF they had to eat. It pretty much sucks!

I hoped things get better and that you have a safe and eventless remainder of the pregnancy. I'll keep you in my prayers :)

Mela..Good luck with the Bed Rest. I had to be on bed rest in the hospital with Josh for 7 weeks, then at home for 4 weeks. That is the reason he was my last baby!! Anyway, good luck, I know what it feels like. My prayers are with you and your family.
