Mom is Coming

I am already getting bored of bed rest and this is only day three. Wow I don't know how I will feel at the end of all this, if I am already bored now. I am excited to have my Mom here tomorrow for the remainder of my bed rest at home. It will be so much better when she is here. I am grateful to her for making the sacrifice to come from Austin and be with me, I love her very much.


  1. I'm glad your mom is coming. it will be nice to have someone there to help you. she can do the cooking and cleaning etc...just make sure you guys don't leave the house to do some fun shopping. Use the internet and have fun!!

  2. Bedrest is an interesting monster. With my first baby I had seven months of bedrest, and I nearly went out of my mind. One evening I broke down and sobbed to my husband that I could not do it one more daughter was born the next afternoon, 7 weeks early.
    I knew it wasn't my fault, but I always felt badly that I became impatient with the "process" of getting this miracle baby safely to earth.
    With my son, I spent all eight months of bedrest with a smile on my face! I was just so thrilled to be blessed with one more baby, and I tried to enjoy every second of him being inside me.
    Of couse, one inside is very different than six! I'm rambling...I just want you to know that I know how it feels, and it is hard, but so worth it. But you know that. :)

  3. I was on modified bedrest for a while when I was pregnant with twins. My Mom was a life saver. She flew in a number of times to take care of us and catch us up on the projects my husband couldn't fit into his schedule. Even he was glad to have her there. :)

    I read about you in an LDS Living e-mail. Congratulations on your little miracles! Your family will be in my prayers. There are some great online communities that allow you to connect with others on bedrest when you get really stir crazy.
