My OB put me officially on partial bed rest during my 24th week prenatal visit two weeks ago. That means I could only be up to take a shower, fix myself a simple meal, eat, and go to the restroom. I should be lying on my side most of the time 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Nothing really serious but that is to prevent any complications I might have in my pregnancy especially preterm labor. We wanted the baby to stay inside me as long as possible, 34 weeks at least. I admit is it challenging both for me and Carl. I am now at 25 weeks and 5 days, that means we still have 8 weeks and 2 days to go.

Other than the boredom from not being able to do many things,I feel pretty good. I am so glad that my morning sickness is over (until 17 weeks) and that I can drink water and eat food other than crackers again. I definitely look pregnant now, my belly is getting bigger and I feel a lot heavier. I have been feeling our babies' punches and kicks, especially late at night and early in the morning now. It is  very comforting to feel their movements and I always love seeing them during ultrasounds. These ultrasound pictures were taken at 24 weeks.

So sorry you have to be on bed rest. That stinks. Hope you have good movies...and maybe a book of sudoku puzzles!
