I know that sounds random but Beau just referred to me as bedridden and I didn't really appreciate it. I'm on bed rest...I could still function if it wasn't better for me and Gaines to rest. I think Beau has actually taken to bed rest himself today. He's spent the better part of the afternoon wrapped up in a pink and purple quilt (which we are graciously borrowing from some friends up here) laid out on his chair. He's currently sipping on his ginger ale and eating animal crackers. I just think its funny. He kind of looks like a little old lady. His shirt even matches his quilt. It's too funny.
Sorry for that...I'm easily amused these days. So far we've had another good day. Gaines and I are still together thankfully. No big medical news to report. His heart rate looked good this morning and I still have no signs of infection. Tomorrow is 27 weeks. Another milestone. We are so thankful. I am getting so close to that 28 week mark but I'm afraid to look too far ahead to it. I know that things could change any minute so I try and just be thankful for what God has given us thus far.
In other news, I look more pregnant today. When my water first broke my stomach got fairly flat. It was pretty sad for someone supposed to be 24 weeks pregnant. Last week I thought I was starting to look a little more pregnant again. I asked Beau what he thought but he didn't think it was in his best interest to answer the question. I was actually hoping he'd agree with me. Later that night one of my nurses noticed. It made me happy. I don't know...I feel like it means he's growing or something. Another nurse last night made a similar comment. She was my very first nurse so I was glad she noticed as well. I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror today and I thought I looked even more pregnant than last week. Just thought you'd like to know.
Speaking of getting bigger, Beau supported some cause this morning and bought us some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Now I know I have more food than I can eat in this room right now but I just didn't know when I'll have the chance for Krispy Kremes again. Long story short, I've had three today...and I'm not going to feel bad if I have another one...so there. I figure as long as I'm eating meals too, they count as dessert. I might even see if Beau will heat it up for me.
I guess that's about it for now. We just heard that Reed made it home safely. Thank you for all of your safe travel prayers for him. Keep them up. Tomorrow he goes from Birmingham to Andalusia (about a 3 hour drive) and he hits the road again this weekend headed up here. We still need your prayers here too. Gaines and I have not made it this far without them. I am constantly begging God for at least 28 weeks. Hopefully He and I can renegotiate once I get that far. The closer I get to 28, the better and better 30, 31, 32,33 and 34 look. I'm kidding about the negotiating of course, but wouldn't that be awesome? Please pray for no infection and a baby that stays happy where he is.
Oh, I'm pretty sure he had the hiccups yesterday so maybe that means he's growing. I think I have another ultrasound on Thursday. Please pray for a good report on that, if I actually have one. They do them every 3 weeks because apparently, the results wouldn't change my treatment...of just laying around.
Thanks for all of your prayers and support. They are doing more than you know.
