26w3d: The Kindness of Others
There is not much new here. Peanut has stayed glued to me all day today. It has been a very quiet weekend. After guests for dinner on Friday night, we have not had any company.
Yesterday I was feeling pretty down. During the week it is not so hard to be on bedrest. Everyone goes to work and complains about it. I am doing what everyone who wakes up at 6 am and goes to the office, fighting bad weather and rush hour traffic wishes they could do: staying in bed in my pajamas! But on the weekend, the rest of the world gets to do the fun stuff, like meeting people for brunch, shopping, going out to dinner at a nice restaurant with their significant other... and I am home watching bad TV. And weekend TV is really the pits, they put on all kinds of lousy movies that I don't even know who watches them. I also didn't feel that well physically, I was having a lot of Braxton-Hicks (none of them consistent or close enough together to warrant calling the OB) and that got me worrying. I also decided I wasn't feeling the babies enough and worried about that. So a bad emotional day combined with a bad physical day was just plain lousy. After dinner, I watched "It's Complicated" and ate some ice cream, which helped.
All I can think about is the end of bedrest and what will happen between now and then. In a couple of weeks my sister will come and visit, she is babysitting me while Eric is in Orlando at a convention and my mom is in Asia. The following weekend my mom comes home, and then it is Valentine's weekend. I sincerely hope that Eric will do something for me for Valentine's Day! And then my in-laws come, and after they leave, I will be 31 weeks and almost at the end of the bedrest road. Not so bad if I lay it out like that...
And here is a picture of my buddy-of-the-day:
