bedrest..well really couch rest!

It is SOO much harder to be on couch rest than I thought it would be! I know it will be worth it in the end, but I just want to get up and clean that kitchen so badly!! Monday was a breeze..the only thing I did that evening was walk over to my neighbors..which is a hop skip and a jump next door and have dinner. Then Todd and I came home and watched Y.es man. It was so funny! Tuesday was a bit harder b/c Todd was off all day and I really wanted to get out of the house. But I stayed in and rested.

I mean I did NADA!! Nothing. Plus I had this MASSIVE case of heartburn and I thought I was going to die. Thankfully Todd made sure I could take some zant.ac... he made sure it was okay if I was pg...hehe He is so optimistic. Then when the fires FINALLY went out I was able to relax. Has anyone ever had heartburn that felt like it ran straight up to your head?? It was awful!!

Today has been uneventful too. I sat upstairs with Todd while he cleaned our baseboards in the bedroom. We are getting new bedroom furniture on Thursday and I wanted our bedroom to have a good cleaning. I tried to get it all done before the transfer but I just couldn't focus. I did get the windows and blinds cleaned..so props for that :D Poor Todd has had a migraine all day and so I have felt pretty bad for asking him to do things for me. But he has been trying...bless his heart. And he has to work this evening and 14 hrs tomorrow. I am feeling for him right now. Thankfully, his sister is coming over tomorrow to help with the furniture delivery..so I won't have to go up and down the stairs a hundred times. Everyone is taking such great care of me..I am one blessed lady :D

The beta is next Thursday..the 14th ;D And I DO NOT plan to POAS before hand..even though my nurse told me I could. I have a few prayer requests..one is a Becca, she is going to have her FET tomorrow!! Pray that all goes smoothly and this will take her to her BFP!! The second one is my sister in law..Ali...She will have her Beta done on Monday and I am praying it is positive. Please keep them both in your prayers!! Love y'all!!

Will be praying for you and those on you have asked for prayers for. That is a lot of fors in one sentence! I love couch rest, but only for a few hours. Then I can't stand it anymore. Enjoy it while you can! We go to Texas tomorrow and then our new RE appointment is Friday! Praying for good news and a new, fresh plan!

You deserve the TLC & rest! Praying for you... & sending BFP, BFP, BFP thoughts... to a very sweet couple:] Hope you'll post a pic of the new furniture- nice distraction! Take Care!

It always sounds so nice doesn't it...not having to do anything for 2 or three days, but by the first afternoon you're bored out of your mind. Not to mention the fact that you just want to stay busy to keep your mind occupied. Getting new furniture should help a little... That's so sweet of your sis-n-law to come and help out. I'm praying and hoping that the 14th you'll get some really good news! (hopefully your sister-in-law will too! that would be so awesome)
Luv ya girl.

Dana! I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you were doing with the bedrest. I'm glad you had your hubby around for most of the time to help keep you entertained! Still praying for you and your precious embryos. You are so sweet to think of me - thank you!! We're off to the doctor in 3 hours and I am so nervous that I can't sleep...

I suffer from that kind of heartburn on a regular basis. I have a RX for Zan.tac I take regularly. It works great.

I will pray for your friend and SIL. I hope all is well for all of you!
