Emotional Ride

Today has been an emotional rollercoaster ride for me. I just felt like the rug was pulled right from under my feet! My doctor was on the phone all morning, trying to get a hold of a specialist for advice. He was really worried that the baby may come out too early. The news just made my heart sank. He finally got a hold of the specialist and they both advised me to have a surgery to help keep the baby in. The news just sounded scary and put me in complete shock. I couldn’t stop the tears running down my face.

The doctor also said that from today on, he’s putting me on bedrest. I had to ask him to clarify what that meant. And he said, no work, no exercise, no weddings, no driving, no walking, no standing, not even sitting! I have to be on my back from now until December!

I called my boss to tell her this wonderful news.. and she was quite understanding. Some of my duties have already been reassigned, and she’ll work on the others as they arise. And she even thought I should take up knitting since that’s not too hard to do lying down. I guess it’s a good time for me to learn how to knit huh? lol

I’m going to miss my coworkers and friends so much. At least I have Facebook to see what everyone is up to. I think my laptop will be my best friend in the upcoming weeks.

It’s the evening now and I feel so much better than I did all morning. My gals called to check up on me and that cheered me up so much. They’ll be dropping by tonight too! So, so sweet of them! Love them so much!!

I have surgery scheduled for this Wed, and the thought of it scares me, but I’ll do what it takes to bring my baby safely into this world. Baby, I love you so much. I’m confident things will turn out well.

More on the positive side of things, I’m doing well, and the baby is doing really well. The baby’s heartbeat is very strong, and my husband and I got to hear it at the doctor’s office today. It’s always nice to hear that beautiful sound.

Pregnancy is such an interesting journey.. full of ups and downs, but all worth it in the end. I can’t wait to meet you my little one. :) I’ll do all I can to give you a healthy start.

  6. I’m so sorry to heard about this, Daynah. You’re such an active woman I’m sure it will be hard to stay on bedrest, but it sounds like you are determined to do what’s best for the baby, and that’s what makes you a wonderful mama!

  7. Get some rest Dana. You won’t get a chance to once the lil one arrived. My friend is going through a similar situation. She has to stay in bed until her due date or at least the baby reaches his full term.
