Bedrest is Over

I was so happy when this morning came and I can't tell you how good that shower felt...I must have washed my hair like 5 times! I still took it semi-easy today but I am back to work tomorrow. Hopefully the day will fly by as I find myself needing a nap around 2pm. I might have to find a parking lot (I drive a lot for my job) and pull over and take a little snooze.

The discomfort in my abdomen from the swelling is a bit better but I still look like I am about 7 months pregnant. Early this morning I started with some pretty bad stabbing pains in my pelvic region along with intermittent cramping similar to the cramps you get with the endometrial biopsy or an HSG. The thing that concerns me the most is the stabbing pains. I can be sitting, laying, walking and out of no where I get this sudden sharp pain that absolutely takes my breath away to the point where I yelp. They are not constant but just randomly happen. With my second pregnancy I developed an intestinal blockage and was hospitalized for almost two weeks so I am a bit nervous. I have been taking Miralax every other day but things seem to be "regular" now as after the transfer things were a bit backed up...but that is to be expected.

I now have 9 days until by Beta. I have planned something almost every night this week so that when I come home from work I don't have to sit around and think about how slowly time is moving. One thing that I am very excited about is taking care of a friends newborn on Saturday. This couple and I went through this journey together and on August 10th they delivered the most adorable baby girl. They have a good friend's wedding on Saturday night in my town so I offered to watch their little princess. This will be their first time leaving her so I am honored that they trust me enough to watch her. I cannot wait to snuggle with her. They will be bringing some "equipment" for her but I have a feeling that I won't be putting her down. I told my husband to look at this as a baby "bootcamp." I am so excited...I can use all the positive baby mojo I can get!
