All is quiet in the hosptial

Well, not much news here from my hostpial bed, which is obviously GREAT news.

My bleeding is still very limited, really more spotting, very dark. it's looking VERY likely that I'll be relseased to go home on Monday on bedrest with some limited activity.

I'm going stir crazy, boy how easily I forgot how hard bed-rest is, I'm back to mourning the life of being a healthy pregnant woman once again. I keep thinking of how much I was enjoying just being pregnant and "living my life" that I never go to do before.

I guess I could sit here and feel sorry for myself (which I'm doing some of), but at the same point know how lucky I am that I'm over 30 weeks now. But really, why do I seem to have the luck.

That's life from the 'fast-lane' here in a San Francisco hospital bed.

Oh Liz... you can imagine my surprise when I just hopped on your blog to check in on you and discovered you were in the hospital. Oh the emotions I am having seeing the pix of you back there... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take care of yourself. I am here to help anyway I can. If you come home on Monday -- consider that I will have meals for you guys as often as needed. My home number is: 895-1600 if you want to call.

REST, REST, REST & please take care of yourself and that little miracle inside of you!

Wow Liz, I'm with Julie - my surprise to scroll back and see you in the hospital -- I was sitting here trying to get P to eat toast, and wondered about you all and thought "Hope all is well with baby too" and wham, you're in hospital.

If you need anything, you've got my number I hope (if you need it, drop me an email) - I know its difficult from here, but I will do what I can.

Lots of love and hugs,

K & P

Aw Liz, hang in there. It does suck royally not to be able to have a "normal" pregnancy. There's nothing wrong with mourning that. At the same time, I'm glad to hear that things don't appear to be dire. I'm praying for you and your son!

Hi Liz...

Would be HAPPY to help with meals for the next several weeks. Please email me and let me know. I can get take outs or make some dishes for you and family.

Thinking of you every day Liz. I remember how depressed I was during my 2nd pregnancy (bedrest started during my first trimester and a whole host of other issues). I was so down. Then came the guilt for feeling so selfish!

It's all normal Liz and it really will get better once the baby is born.

So, sit with your emotions. It's ok to feel robbed.

Sending many hugs your way. I wish we lived closer!!
