View from my bed at dinner time. Thanks Mom for helping us out so much this week, don't know how we would do it without ya.

Well my 21st week of pregnancy turned out to be the most eventful thus far. I say eventful but it was really just downright scary. I went back to the doctor today and got a much better report. The medicine is working to slow the contractions and he recommended that I stay on the medicine and bed rest for the remainder of this pregnancy. Oh my.......its going to be a long summer. The doctor gave me the ok to go to our baby showers in Columbia this weekend as long I sit the whole time and stay on bed rest while in Columbia. My mom is going with us so I'm sure she will be keeping me in line. I am so excited I get to go!!!!!!!!!

In bed rest news............well, I just lay here all day. I assure you it is not as easy as it sounds. I don't sit still well in the first place, so this whole bed rest thing is going to be a little more challenging for me than most. I am really kicking myself for not getting more done around the house to get ready for these lil sweet peas before now. The worst part of bed rest so far, is that my hips are killing me from laying on my sides all day. Mentally, I'm doing ok too, but I'm sure I'll start to go crazy soon. So this could be sanest blog post yall get.......ha ha, I'm serious. I'm going to go ahead and apologize for anything I say form this point forward.

I don't really feel like doing my questionnaire this week, but I'll pick it up again next week. Even though it seems that I may be complaining a bit about the bed rest thing, I honestly understand its importance and would do anything in the world to keep these babies safe inside my belly for as long as possible.


  1. I just thought I'd send you some good vibes from another triplet mom-to-be who understands what you're going through. I'm currently 18w2d with GGB triplets and have been signed off of work for two weeks now. Although I'm not on bed rest officially yet, my doctor has asked me to rest as much as possible. I'm getting some braxton hicks contractions, which slow down when I'm lying down, which is where I usually am.

    I love reading your blog. Your posts make me smile, even when you're complaining (you're definitely allowed to do that, you know!).

    Do you have Facebook or MSN? Perhaps we could spend some time chatting about our common experience. :-)

  2. I hope bed rest is going okay Lucy!!! I am thinking and praying for you and all of the babies!! Please let me know if you need help with anything.

  3. Lucy!! I wish i could come lay with you and make you laugh! Good luck!! Love you
