Well, today I was put on bedrest. I've been having a ton of what I thought were Braxton Hicks contractions. At my last appointment 2 weeks ago doc said if they stop when I sit down and my cervix is fine, no worries. Well, I've been having so many the last few days (every few minutes when I stand up), that I went in to get checked today. Sure enough I'm about 50% effaced and my cervix is soft. Doc did the FFN test (will get the results tomorrow) and told me to sit or lay down and only get up to shower/go to the bathroom/grab a quick bite to eat. That is easily said with a 2 year old around!!! We have family in town for the next 2 weeks but after that I am not sure what we will do... it's going to be difficult. But I am determined to keep LO baking as long as possible and after a day of mostly sitting already noticed way less contractions - in fact, I had only a handful today.
I'm feeling a little sad because my 2-year old just doesn't understand why mommy can't play as usual with him. I'm trying to do lots of books/legos/etc that I can do sitting, but of course he wants me to pick him up. Ugh. I was so hoping to avoid this.:(
