Baby News

The good news is that the Dr. told me that as soon as I hit 34 weeks I can get out of the bed and if I go into labor it's fine and there shouldn't be any problems. I'm at 32 weeks and 4 days now, so that is only 1 1/2 weeks until I can get out of this bed and try to get something accomplished. YAY!!!! Of course I may end up having a baby very soon after that point, but I'm hoping for at least a few days so I can get some things done that need to be taken care of before the baby comes. He said that there's no way I'll make it all the way to the end of March. He figures it will be fairly soon after I get up. He said that at 34 weeks there is a 90% chance that the baby will be able to go home with me and not have to stay in the hospital. So that is very good news. He said it would be best if we could make it to 36 weeks, but that he'll be happy after 34 so I don't need to stay in the bed past that point. I am sooooo excited to be able to get around again. I think the first thing I'm going to do is go to the store. I think Target first, followed by Broadbents. I can't wait! I'm getting so excited just thinking about it.

I am so excited for you to be able to get out of bed! I can't imagine bed rest, it must be awful. I hope you can make it as long as possible of course, after you have the baby I will be jealous that you were on bed rest and are done being pregnant! 1 1/2 weeks and counting!

That is wonderful news, Shari!
You have been a very good incubator, you deserve a trip to Target and MORE!

Good luck!

Broadbents! Did you say, Broadbents? Yes! I want to go. Oh! Wait. Is this like Roberts Crafts? If so, I am tired of going to places like these. I think I have lost a few chest hairs going into these places alone. Not to mention the men that wink at me in there! I am happy for you that you will soon be able to get out of the house. Love Ya!

Yeah! I am so happy for you! I have been wondering how you are doing. I just hit 34 weeks and my doctor has pretty much said the same thing except she still wants me to take it easy for another week. Hopefully we make it! I can't wait to see your little boy!
