However one thing has changed within the last few weeks. Mom's cervix has gotten shorter and thinner- NOT good! So, I've been given the word from the doctor to quit working and exercising :( The more time I'm off my feet - the better. For many people this may sound like great news. ha! But those of you who know me at all - realize this will not be easy for me! I'm a busy-body - and there's still SOOO much to do before these babies arrive! The good news is, I'm not on actual bed-rest. I'm still able to get up and about, run errands, etc. I just have to listen to my body, and make sure I'm off my feet for a good chunk of each day. My oversized, electric recliner and I have become good friends! Haha. I try to sit with my feet up (reading, watching movies, surfing the net, planning baby and house stuff...) for a good part of the day. But I've realized that I need one 'outing' every day - or I go crazy!
I know this is for the best. The longer we can keep the babies in, the more they develop and grow. These last few weeks are vital for their development. I've realized that a huge stress has been lifted off of me. I feel much better since I've been relaxing more. People keep telling me to take advantage of this forced time off because it will probably NEVER happen again! Soooo true!
