I can remember as a kid loving summer vacation. I would look forward to it all year. I would plan and think about how much time I could spend at home doing anything or nothing. The first week I was in heaven. I would have so much fun sleeping in until 12 and then staying up and playing video games, going outside, swimming, in the sprinklers, hanging out with friends. After about a week my new found freedom was restricting. I was bored, I felt gross.
Bed rest is much the same. The idea is awesome, staying in bed, watching TV, reading books, catching up on all those things. But for me after one day I was sick of it. My body hurt from being in the supine position. I was tired of TV and books were hard to read because I felt to crappy.
I found out today that I have some blood pressure problems from pregnancy however, the good news is it appears I do not have pre-eclampsia. So...instead of delivering this weekend we get to hold out until June 4th. That is my newly scheduled date. This means one week of bed rest. I have such respect for women who do this for months. Take my mother for example, she had to be on almost 9 months of bed rest for 4 of her 5 children. It is amazing she had as many kids as she had. I have new found respect for all of the women in the world who have gone on bed rest.
Anyhow, please feel free to call me, email me, play games online. I am stuck on my side for 8 more days. Yikes.
