So, now I am on strict bed rest. I can not sit up. I can't eat dinner at the dinner table I have to eat laying down or at a little incline. I can only go to the bathroom or take a shower and come lay back down. I can't take a shower every day. It's has to be every other day or every 3 days. And obviously I can not go anywhere except to the doctors office.
Well, now that you know what is going on....my sis in law suggested I write a blog about my journey on bed rest :-). I thought it would be a fun thing to do and it would be another thing to keep me busy and occupied. I'm not sure yet whether I want to do day by day or week by week. I will prob do week by week just because I do a lot of the same things every day, like laying down. :-) So, writing week by week will be my verbal "celebration" of being able to keep these babies cooking another week. Right now I'm 22 weeks and 3days. My doc hopes I can make it 9 weeks so they have a better chance at surviving. I'm shooting for 12 weeks. We will see what happens.
I did receive a blessing from my husband and dad on Thursday evening and that helped me be at peace with the whole situation. Then, I read my patriarchal blessing and that also gave me peace and hope. I know that the Lord has a plan for us and I know that He will take care of me and the babies. I was really sad at first but now I'm more optimistic and will do what I have to do for my baby boys so they can be healthy and strong.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Love y'all!
