    Lol, I've just been a lurker lately! Work kept me busy busy busy so I hardly had time to post!

    And I know!!! I cannot believe I'm 4 days away from my due date!!!! It's mind boggling and I'm still pinching myself! I'm still not convinced there is a real baby in there honestly, my baby?! But I'm so excited to be so close to meeting her!

    My bp has been creeping up over the last couple weeks. One visit it would be high then I'd go back a few days later and it was normal. Then the next time it was high again. And now its just staying high. No protein or weight gain or any other signs of pre-e so its probably just "normal" pregnancy induced hypertension but my doctor wants to keep a close eye on it and keep me relaxed. Though I must admit, bed rest is actually pretty stressful! All I can think about it what I need/want to be doing and feel bad that my husband is having to pick up all my slack!

    How are you?! What's new?!

    I can see how it would be stressful!! I'm in partial denial of our to do list and have some guilt when I ignore it for couch time, I can only imagine if it was being forced on me. Thank goodness for no protein being present. I'm so excited for you to meet her!!!!

    I'm doing great! Nothing much to report other than I have nothing done and am in no way prepared for baby boy's arrival other than I just want to snuggle him in my arms!!! Well, I did 0-3 month laundry today and started prepping diapers, so at least he won't be naked -- though is there anything cuter than a naked baby tushie???

    I am glad you wrote this Katharine!  I've been thinking of you too LauraKat!  I'm sorry about the bedrest.  I've been on a modified version for a month now and  I'm going stir-crazy as well!  I saw in a different post that you pre-made 3-4 weeks of freezer meals before you were put on BR.  That's awesome!  You sound like you have everything under control over there. Good luck and keep us posted.
