Yesterday exhausted me. I way over did it and my Dr. would have a fit if she knew what I did.

So I had my appt. with DB specialist yesterday. I am doing ok. Mid day sugars are still a little more independent then we want them to be. Might have to up morning meds if they dont settle. OK no biggy.

They did say I also have to go in once a week for DB monitoring AND once a week for u/s. WOW.

They also said I can't go to Pumpkin Land or Apple picking because it's way too much walking. Long day. This is going to be tough for me. these are fall traditions that I look forward to each year. I mean my favorite things to do out of the year. I have a few that i just dont ever want to miss. Even bigger then Thanksgiving and my own Bday. Again very tough.

Yesterday I didn't lay down, I sat but not lay down. I went to the city for my appt. on the way home I stopped at FIL. ended up staying a couple hours so he could go to work for an hour to finish something up, while I wait for the FEDEX guy and keep an eye on disabled step-MIL. I sat doing that.

Then I went to our neighbors Jr. High Soccer Game. It meant the world to her that I was there. But it rained a little bit and we stood the whole time, plus walking to the field. (She knows I am on bed rest so it really meant a lot to her. I did tell her unfortunately I wouldnt be able to make it to any other game. But I really wanted to see her play at least once. She beamed)

Then to Bug's soccer practice where I had to walk to his field, thankfully he carried my chair for me. Such a big boy. Hubby met me there after work. Thought it best not to go to any more practices. Which broke my heart, I know he is right, and it made me tear up right then and there.

By the time I got home it was really late. My back was killing me. I even had a back spasm that made me drop. I ended up eating supper laying down on the couch. I took a short bath to warm up. I was chilled to the bone, then laid in bed to watch Survivor and bed early.

I was so tired I only got up twice to use bathroom. I even woke up laying on my stomach. WHAT. I am 27 wks. My stomach is huge. Not comfortable. Feel a little crampy this morning. but all is fine.

Bug kissed me awake this morning. It was very cute. He was super tired and sensitive. I so wanted to keep him home today. Can't though he is in K. It's picture day and if I kept him home he would think it's ok to cry and stay home again another time. Damn. So I got Bug ready to go and MIL walked him to the bus. I took sugars, good reading for once in AM. had breakfast, watched Bones and getting ready to go lay down. It's only 9:30, but I am ready for a nap.

Going away this weekend for a quiet anniversary in the city. Chose that just b/c it's close to the hospital in case I needed. God forbid. Instead of going out we will just end up chilling in the room, watching movies in bed, no sex (nothing in vagina rule still stands---minus dr. hand and other not so fun monitoring devices OUCH). Sorry TMI

Not quite the get away I imagined our anny, but still looking forward to it. I can't wait to have hubby all to myself. At least the DB specialist said I can have a treat. yeah. then back on track next weekend. yeah.


  1. For a gal on partial bed-rest, you sure accomplish a lot;-) Happy anniversary!!! I wish we had grandparents close enough to leave Russell with.

  2. We both have that problem as well...doing things that would make other people happy even though it's not the right thing to do for you. It's a curse. I'm glad she was so happy you were there though.

    I'm going to my sisters coffeehouse today(I'm her bookkeeper 4 hours a week, I never gave that job up, yet) to work. I know I'm crazy. But I feel like I need to wrap things up for whoever is going to take my place. Good for them, bad for me, yet I feel like I have to do it anyway. Stupid of me.

    Then it's back to the couch. I'm glad you'll have a nice weekend. DON'T over do it:)

  3. GodParents. he has been looking forward to spending the night for over a month now. Bug is blessed with amazing GodParents.
