The Prescription of Bed Rest Continues...

I'm 11 weeks today, what a major milestone for us!  We're starting to close in on the first trimester.  And it sure does feel good.

I had my OB appointment today.  All looks well.  We had our 8th ultrasound.  The baby is busy kicking and getting strong, though I can't feel any of it yet.  The subchorionic hematoma is slightly smaller.  The doctor said this can only go two ways; it gets better or it gets worse.  So my bedrest continues for the next few weeks at the least.  I don't go back to the OB for another 2 weeks and 3 days, but who's counting?  Until then, I remain on the couch or in bed.

The other highlight of the week, other than seeing the baby, was that Jordan took me to McDonalds for breakfast!  I know that's very sad.  But when you get to stare at only half the walls in your own house for almost 2 weeks straight, just getting out of the house is a major event!  And it will be my only outing for another 2 weeks until my next appointment.  

On a sad note, our brand new cheap television that we bought already died.  Luckily, it was still within the warranty of the store so we could get our money back without any hassle.  But some more exciting news is we bought a new laptop.  Our old laptop still kind of works but the screen is about ready to fall off and some plastic just kind of hangs there.  It was the one that we had from college so it got great use, and maybe some abuse through it's lifespan of over 6 years.  Plus, it went around the world with us more than once.  So our new laptop is a macbook and I really like it.  It does so many neat things and is so easy to navigate through.  My laptop is now my saving grace to keep me sane and updated with the outside world.  Again, very sad.  

Here are the pictures from the last 2 weeks.  I look a bit better in the first picture at 10 weeks  but wow do I look fat at 11 weeks!  I think this is finally me popping out and not just my swollen bowels.  Plus, I'm on bed rest so everything goes downhill a lot quicker.  Isn't that something to look forward to?

P.S. Nevermind my red plaid pajama pants that I've had since high school  :o)


  1. YAY look awesome and your little bean is def growing in there. Hopefully you won't need to stay on bedrest for the whole pregnancy. Hopefully this will heal itself and you can be out and about again. Continued prayers for you and by the way...JOB WELL DONE!!! You are doing awesome!

  2. Kim, I disagree. I think you look fabulous in your 11 week picture. Definitely look pg in my opinion! Don't forget, you can always be driven to a friend's house as long as you lounge on their couch.
