Update from Mommyto2
Sorry it has been so long! I jump on here to check on everyone and then I am worn out! I am still bleeding but the progesterone suppositories seem to be helping. Today was the first day in almost 3 wks of having a heavy period that I have seen a decrease!!! I still tire very easily, get dizzy when I stand and have some abdominal pain and cramping. It is all slowly going away. The fatigue has been worse than I have ever had w/ my previous 2 pregnancy's. I guess it is the blood loss. I have been back on my prenatals as well.

I have had some interesting cravings, which I guess is a good sign! Today for a snack I ate green olives and strawberries. I guess it is my version of pickles and ice cream! I have wanted salty foods and I do not like salt.

I have had my MIL and my dad rotating coming over here in the mornings to deal with the kids. I feel so...lazy and helpless but have gladly accepted the help! I am hoping by next week the bleeding will have totally stopped and I can start feeling somewhat normal! I am a person who works out 5 days a week and this has been killing me! I just look at the end result-a baby. Or if the baby doesn't make it I know I have done everything I can to give my baby a fighting chance.

Thanks for all your continued thoughts and prayers. I lerk about once a day but between sleeping in, napping and going to bed early well it doesn't leave much time for updating! I got back to the doc on Monday the 18th to see if we still have a heartbeat! Many prayers for that!!! I am off to watch the Olympics! J

yay! take it easy! I was on strict bedrest, but I made it even stricter than the dr ordered! Like you said, I needed to know that I had done everything for her. And, the weight will come off when you're done and start working out again. Bedrest wreaks havoc on your body though....I lost a lot of muscle and it was exhausting when I was allowed to start walking again. I was told that however long you are on bedrest, it will take at least that long to get your muscle tone back.

I have been praying for you and your little bean. What is your name? I feel so funny at night when I say "Dear Lord, please watch over mommyto2 and help her baby grow". It would be great to know your real name. LOL. You have such a wonderful positive outlook on it all. It is evident that you know it is in God's hands. Enjoy your rest, it won't last long. I was on bed rest with Cooper and it can be really hard to relinquish control. But, no one minds helping you I'm sure. Big hugs!!!

Oh yeah, I meant to say that I lost feeling in my hip/ side of my leg while I was on BR b/c I had to lay on my side all the time, and I still haven't gotten it back all the way yet. It can really take time to recover from it all.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
I am glad the bleeding is less. So...how does your dad and your mil enjoy watching the kiddos?? Do they see how it is now, lol. You know I continue to pray for you Jennifer...you are doing such a GREAT job at relaxing which I know is hard for you.
