I feel like I can't do anything and it's so depressing! DS had an ENT appointment this morning so I asked my mom if she could drive us to the appt and watch DS so I can just sit and not have to chase him around. I'm not even sure if I was supposed to venture out, but I had to take him. Afterwards, I started having contractions about 8-9 minutes apart. This just proved to me that I can't even do that. I'm home now and resting and they seemed to have stopped. I'm thinking that maybe I need to rent a wheelchair now for my grandpa's funeral next week. I'd hate to actually go into full blown labor during his service.
So I did find out at the ENT appt that DS needs his tonsils and adenoids removed. His surgery is October 17th.
Did you get any discharge papers with instructions? That is what they gave to me. It said I was ONLY allowed to get up to use the bathroom and get something to eat(and by that they mean like a sandwich, not make dinner).
It is very depressing I'm on modified bedrest now, much easier, but still depressing at times.
Yep, dont tempt fate! I am sure it is super hard but STAY PUT! I feel for ya!!!

I wasn't on bedrest but I was soooo sick at the beginning, it felt like it. I couldn't do anything -not because of contractions but because I physically couldn't do anything. It was very depressing. Especially because DD didn't understand why I couldn't play with her, etc.
I would definitely rent a wheel chair for the funeral. You will be stressed enough on that day... you don't need anything else. Check with your drs office... you may be able to get one through them &/or even covered by your insurance. Although, I don't think a short term rental costs that much.
About DS, I would've went to the appt too.
Hang in there! Keep that baby baking!
Yeah it sounds like strict bedrest, for the next few days I'd at least avoid any and all movement except the bathroom and I would go very very slow.
*hugs* Take it easy. I know it's hard, but we're all here to amuse you online

Im so sorry your having to be on bedrest, and even though its best for you and baby, its still a bummer.
I cant even suggest watching tv, because daytime tv stinks, lol!
take care and I am always around to chat and my best wishes to ds and his upcoming surgery. I am sure he will do fantastic!
