Six Word Saturday- Aug 28, 2011

Pretty simple to participate, you just describe your life, or something, in only 6 words. Then you go back to Show My Face and link it up. Feel free to check out all the other six words too!

 I’m on modified Bedrest until 27weeks! :/


Yep, you heard it right! Friday I went to my regular check up,  with no worries at all! Turns out there where things to  worry about.  I have already begun dialiting. EEP! I’m not far along yet, but I am only 29 weeks so I shouldn’t be dialated at all. My doctor said… go straight to the hospital to get admitted and started on steroid shots. The shots help develop the babies lungs, just in case I do deliver early.

Not what I wanted to hear, nor was it really how I wanted to spend my weekend. I was going to be child free this weekend and had made plans. I was going to register for my baby showers, do some swiming in my mother in laws pool, plan my baby shower. Now, all of a sudden, I am to go straight to the hospital and be admitted right away.

I spent the night in the hospital, and was sent home. The resident doctor came in said “oh your fine you can go back to work, don’t worry about it” i was nervous at that, but exctied because lord knows we need the money. Then not long after MY actual doctor came in and said.. “no, we are going to place you on modified bedrest, I don’t want you on your feet for more than an hour at a time” SCARY!! She said that I am on modified bedrest until I reach at least 36 weeks. If I make it that long I can go back to work if I want to. Key word there being IF!

Here is what I can/cannot do:

I can go up/down the stairs UP to two times a day.

I can go to the store/out UP to two times a week.

I can do slight cleaning, no moping, no scrubbing the floors (no laundry, because its in the basement) etc

I can relax in the bed, couch or chair.

I CANNOT take a walk around the block, to the car and back.

I CANNOT do jumping jacks (yes she said that)

I am terrified, but I know everything will be okay, eventually!!


on a side note check out this baking stone!….


This baking stone CAN GO IN THE DISHWASHER! It also has movable chrome handles, that can go up for an easy way to take it out of the oven and for carrying, or down to keep the hot surface off of your counters pace. Best thing about it (like there could be anything better) is that it is UNDER $20!!! Get yours here!

    The stone is pretty awesome but that bites about the bedrest…I went through an ordeal similar to this just recently with my little one…I’ll be praying for your little one and you…God will see you through…

    Bummer. still, always best to follow Dr’s orders.

    You said:
    “I can do slight cleaning, no moping, no scrubbing….”

    Of course, if it were me, and someone curtailed my housekeeping drudgery I wouldn’t mope, either.

    Hi P’s Pallette, it’s a sorry bit isn’t it? I do feel a bit sorry for you. I am just finishing up my fifth week of near-bed-rest and things get awfully monotonous. I hope yours is up in the shorter seven weeks. The seven weeks that seem like 27? But a healthy baby is worth more than we could ever dream of.

    Mrs. Jim has a cooking stone but has never used it. My sister-in-law also has one She makes biscuits and cooks them on hers.

    Do what they say, even though it’s a pain (shame about the jumping jacks, I’m sure that’s just what you were planning), your health and the baby’s are the most important thing.

    All the best.

    How scary! But try to make the best of it, us mom’s normally don’t get carte blanche to lounge about the sofa.

    The most important thing is to do what’s necessary for that little baby. So listen to the docs and trust that things will work out just fine. Thanks for playing 6WS!
