Many friends wonder why I don't really enjoy being pregnant. Or why I am only having two kids. Beside the fact that all I really want is two. One for each parent, or one for each hand when I am alone.
Oh yeah and I SUCK at being pregnant!
I have very difficult pregnancies.
Not, oh I am throwing up 16 times a day for 6 months difficult. Although that would be horrible, I would rather do that I think. (I'm not saying being sick is easy either, I would just rather be sick all the time!)
I'm talking babies coming early and being on bed rest difficult.
With Jakah I was put on bed rest at 27 weeks. And honestly we were lucky to even find out when we did. I seem to carry them funny. They are head down from the beginning. With Jakah we had to have 6 ultrasounds to try and get pictures of his brain to make sure he was OK. His head was just so far down in my pelvis. Eventually we did a 3-d ultrasound (which is amazing!) and found out I had a shortened cervix. Really short! I was given steroid shots and put on bed rest for 9 weeks. The week after I was taken off bed rest Jakah showed up.
Yesterday morning I went to the bathroom and there was blood. I freaked out. There shouldn't be blood. Called the Dr and text my husband. He came straight home from work and took me into the Dr, where they first checked my cervix to make sure it was still in tact.
Good news is that everything is fine, Jensen is good and active and I'm not in labor.
Bad news is they have no idea why I was bleeding. And its a high possibility I will be getting put on bed rest again. In fact I put myself on bed rest for the day.
Bed rest is boring, but bed rest with a 2 year old. How is that even going to work? And I hope I don't get put in the hospital (there was talks of it last time)
Its scary, REALLY scary! Its one of the worst feelings I have ever experienced.
