Bed Rest

So, it happened again. My blood pressure spiked on Friday at my last appointment before inducing Ty. The good news is, I only have to be on bed rest for 5 days. The bad news is....I feel slightly like a prisoner. I am supposed to lay on my left side, eat zero salt, take my blood pressure occasionally, and drink lots of water over the next 5 days. To top it off...(TMI headed at you)...I was supposed to compile all my pee for the first 24 hours into a container and take it to be processed this morning and have my blood drawn also. And, I am missing a very fun wedding tonight for a friend! (Debbie Downer alert!!) Some may think it sounds like a dream to lay around for a few days but, with a very active 2 year old it proves very difficult. Also, there is only so much you can do laying on your left side. There is nothing on TV right now and in the past 24 hours I have already watched 3 movies: Something Borrowed, Newsies, and Little Fockers. I am also set up on the couch with a book, the iPad (which I am currently blogging from), and my phone. So, if everyone could please post some awesome blogposts and call me all the time, I would love it!

All in all, I know this is so worth it to be in better health for delivery on Wednesday for baby Ty! I am so excited and I am just going to try to enjoy the weekend before rest is just a distant memory. I hope you guys have a great weekend and until then we will be hanging out much like this:

Hang in there Lindsay!! Two are so much fun. Can't wait to see pictures of your cutie! I was on bedrest for 16 weeks (ugh!) but now when I look back on that time, I think if only I could just lay on the couch and read a book :) Miss y'all tons and will be praying for a speedy, healthy delivery!

Well you look absolutely gorgeous lounging there! And Kinley, too! It won't be long now till Ty is snuggled there in between y'all.

Wow you look great on bed rest! I don't look that great after getting ready! Wishing you a healthy & quick delivery!
