Doctors Appointment Went Well for the Most Part

Seen my OB today. Good news, based on his NST, you cannot tell that there is anything going on with our baby's heart. Bad news, Mama cannot stop losing weight, and I am getting really bad. My blood pressure is still good, but it is higher than it has been all pregnancy. I am having trouble being out and about at all. I talked to my doctor about it, and she said that I am doing what I should be. She told me to take it easy, and if bed rest is what my body wants, than obviously its what my body needs. This STINKS. I need to clean my house and get everything ready for baby boy. I cannot be stuck to this bed. ​

    Well, glad to hear the good news. The bad news is only temporary and maybe you can do a little bit each day? Or set a goal of 5-15 minutes of doing something to get ready for baby and spread 3-4 of them out over the course of your day so you feel like you are doing something. You can fold clothes from bed and have the children with your oldest daughter helping the younger ones put them away in their rooms. Think of the little things you can do and maybe your hubby will help you get the bigger stuff done when he's home.

    That's what I try to do, but I am nesting too. So sitting in this bed, when my house looks like it does, just makes me depressed.

    Remember that little poem? It can be applied in your situation, as you are "incubating" your baby boy the house stuff can wait, he won't know the difference:

    "Babies Don't Keep"
    The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
    for children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
    I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
