so the time has come
we had a feeling it would happen
i dreaded it would happen
alas it did
after friday's appointment
the doc 
has put me on 
"modified bedrest"
why you ask?
trust me i screamed this!!
too much amniotic fluid
too weak of cervix
and a really big baby
so what is 
"modified bedrest"
dr google
will give you a lot of information
has a great article
the nuts and bolts 
of it
per the doctor's orders were
"sleep in late, 
take lots of naps,
go to bed early
only about an hour or two out of the house a day" 
my husband's response
"honey, if you played xbox that's some quality xbox time"
secretly i think he wanted the doc to give him 
modified bedrest orders
so he could "support" me
is my first day unsupervised
since hubby is at work
and yes he has already called to check on me 
to make sure i'm following doctor's orders
to be trusted to stay off my feet
so what have i done?
because frankly this is a form of cruel and unusual punishment
first i read....
today's book
   an odd beginning but overall a good book
since we all know how great AFN's line up is
i enjoyed 
a little grey's 
with o'malley!!
yes you heard me right
afn still plays grey's
with o'malley
and who doesn't love o'malley?!?
finished the day off
a nice movie
i'm a sucker for romantic comedies
and jennifer lopez movies
my hour or two free from house arrest
will be spent at bible study
asking God for sanity for the next 7 weeks
i go back to the doc
my hope is that they may revoke 
the "modified bedrest" 
but till then
i will follow doc's orders
enjoy some cuddle time with the pups
read some good books
watch some good movies
truly cherish the one to two hours of freedom a day

we've got funneling!

as an okie
i am very familiar with the term
you will hear it on the news at least three times a week
between the months of march and june
more than not your favorite show
will be interrupted
at least once
with a meteorologist speaking of
funneling activity
in a county that only a true okie could pronounciate
but when the ob
talked about funneling
i was a little taken back
ok i was really taken back
a part of me was waiting on the infamous Gary England
to come across the ultrasound monitor and tell me what county funneling was spotted
turns out your cervix can funnel
this is NOT my funnel this is courtesy of google search
like the funneling
i've been referring to
this type of funneling is not good either
will a tornado touch down in utero
no! but we are definitely now being "watched"
like the thousands of okies that glue to their tv
when storm chasers are trying to get the best shot
of that funnel cloud
so what does a funneling cervix mean?
not quite sure...
lamens terms
i am dilating from the inside out
dr google terms
i am about to deliver a baby
and should seek bed rest immediately!
stay away form dr google please!
the doctors have not put me on bed rest!
we are just back on two week checks for now
making sure this funnel doesn't grow
i knew that i was at risk for preterm labor
the pregnancy has been so easy so far
measurements have been good
baby is measuring three weeks larger than we should be
this is our first real complication
for now i will not worry
and just pretend
Gary England
is giving me a play by play
that i am so use to hearing
every spring
now what county should we call my cervix?
