Wasted Days

Ahhhhh, bed rest! Lounging in bed, watching movies all day, no work... sounds fun, yes? Not.

I feel guilty that I am not at work, not to mention that it will be at least ONE paycheck that I am missing. My days are so boring. If I was just at home, I could at least clean, do the laundry, dishes, vacuum, etc., but I have restrictions. I am not supposed to lift anything over 5 pounds, if I am at home I should be off my feet, preferably laying down, and bending and walking should be minimal.

I do feel lucky, though, because I am allowed to do some things. I can go to a movie, or out to dinner, but not both. I can do a load of laundry, but not laundry all day, you get the idea.

I think the worst part is that is probably the best month for weather here in Texas. It is warm and sunny, pools are just starting to be at a comfortable temperature. I feel like I am just wasting these gorgeous days!

I don't want to sound too, "poor, pitiful me". This is what is best for Hunter. Currently, we are 32 weeks and 5 days, and the doctor wants me to lay low until I get to at least 35 weeks. After that, she will consider letting me go back to work, which I am definitely going to push for! I would love to see the kids, I kind of just had to leave, and then wasn't allowed to come back! Luckily, at my last doctor's appointment I was given a steroid shot to help Hunter's lungs should he be born before then. They also gave me one so that I could get another shot 24 hours later, so my lovely nurse/ sister in law gave it to me the next day. Have I ever mentioned what a baby I am about shots? Oh my goodness! Five shots in five days?! No fun! Hopefully, the steroid shot was strictly a precaution and Hunter stays nestled inside for at lease another month. I had this feeling that he would be one of those 42 week babies, but my uterus seems to have other plans. A couple of different pre-term labor scares, and I will stay nestled in my humble abode for as long as need be :)
