I just love this photo. It truly sums up how a woman on bed rest might feel. Her hair freshly highlighted with gently tousled curls. A slight amount of lipgloss and blush to convey a healthy glow as she skypes with her fellow bed resting friends. And check out those cute and coordinated pajamas she just ordered online.
I’m one week into this thing called bed rest and this woman gives me hope that the best is yet to come.
After two trips to the hospital to have contractions stopped, my doctor prescribed moderate bed rest, meaning I have to be off of my feet most of the day, cannot do any housework or drive anywhere. This sounds like a mother’s dream, but figuring out the logistics of taking care of a 2 and 4 year old hasn’t been easy. Simple tasks like chasing Carter down to change her diaper or bending down to tie Addie’s shoes start up the contractions. Thankfully, we have a lot of wonderful people willing to pitch in and help us get through the next 4-6 weeks!
I do plan to fully update this blog, no excuses now! I know life will be crazy in a very different way when Baby Brother finally does make his way into our world.
