Light At The End Of The Tunnel

It’s been about 2 weeks since my water broke and I’ve been on bed rest at the hospital. I can’t believe I made it this long. Well, what choice did I really have?

Our little man is doing so awesome. I’m so proud of him for staying strong and healthy. I can’t wait to meet him. And I won’t have to wait much longer. Sunday night I will be given a pill by mouth to begin the process of softening the cervix. And Monday morning we will begin the rest of the process to welcome baby boy into our world.

Thank you all for your kind words, prayers and comments. They have been very up lifting.

Please continue to pray for our health. Also for Baby C. Yesterday, it hit me that I never really explained to her what was going on and I think she thought I would be in the hospital forever. When I talked to her about mommy and baby brother coming home soon, she seemed surprised.

I’m looking forward to joining the rest of the world soon!

Stuck

This is how I feel . . . Stuck.

Each long day goes by and I’m stuck in this hospital bed. I want so badly to escape and get back to living life.  I want to be with my family and take care of them.  I want to be in my real life routine, not this.

Stuck in bed everyday.
Stuck with needles everyday.
Stuck with relying on others for everything.

It’s been hard to ask for help. I never want to put a burden on someone else. But This past week, I’ve had to learn to let go and let others take over. It’s the only way I’ll make it through being stuck.

God has brought me so many people to help me through.
Friends are cooking dinners for my family.
They pick up Baby C for play dates.
They visit me, keep me company, bring me lunch, books and magazines.
I don’t know what I would do without them.

As another long day goes by, I pray for
Strength to make it through another day
Health as I feel my body being overtaken by antibiotics
God’s perfect timing

As for our little man, he is staying strong and healthy. And our goal is for a safe delivery on February 17th.

My Water Broke

I shared with you all on Facebook that my water broke a couple nights ago. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your thoughts and prayers.

I have been at the hospital on bed rest for two days now. The plan is to keep the baby inside as long as possible and try to have a natural delivery at 34 weeks. We are currently at 32. We are monitoring baby and me watching for infection,etc.

I entered the hospital around midnight on Wednesday. We had to wake Baby C and bring her along. She was so confused and I was so scared. I didn’t know what to expect. Tonight, I feel better knowing we have a “plan” but we know anything can happen.

It’s so hard to be on complete bed rest and not being able to take care of my family. I miss them so much. But I know this is best for our little man.

It will be quiet over here for a while, with hopefully some updates on baby and I. I had some great reviews and giveaways planned, but those we be put on hold.

In the meantime, please keep this little man in your prayers! It means so much to me and our family.  Thank you for your support.
