Bed Rest Bum - But made it to 29 weeks!!!

Sadly, I really do not have that much to blog about because the four walls of my bedroom or living room are not that exciting. Although, we did go back to the Doctor yesterday and I also made it to 29 weeks which was huge to me and little Bryar! I am so very thankful for each passing day and especially each week we will see pass by. We had an ultrasound to see how big he is now measuring and to check other things as well. Mr. Bryar must have been in a good mood because he let us see everything from his profile, feet (which looked big to me), hands, pouty lips and those boys parts that are always a refresher to hear "it is for sure a boy."

I can already tell who he looks like from this profile photo, although I have been thinking it for a while now.

He measured 2 lbs and 10 oz again this week, but he is so far down that I am sure it is hard to get a good measurement on him. Everyone seems to always be surprised how low that he is, but sadly he reminds me how low he is sitting every single night with having to get up 5-6 times. No, I am not joking. The pressure is zero fun each night, but I cannot even imagine if I had a big baby laying in that area. Bless the hearts of each of you that have given birth to a linebacker.

Dr. G said that he is very confident that we are taking every precaution possible and that there is no way of telling when Bryar will make his arrival. We talked about how long the possiblity of a NICU stay could be if I were to deliever soon or even before 35 weeks. I know and have wrapped my mind around that, but I have lots of faith as well!

Pregnancy Highlights:

  • Food Food Food has been all that I can practically think about the last few days. I am not sure if it is the bed rest boredem or that I am just simply large and in charge now.

  • Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs

  • Baby is still moving like crazzzy and hates whenever I lay to my right side.

  • Maternity clothes are a must especially pants being that he is so low.

  • His crib, changing table and rocker are now set up in his room =) yay!

  • Trying to plan a baby shower is kind of a nightmare with not knowing how things are going to go at this point. But I guess we will plan and then push back to a Sip and See shower if he comes before hand.

We go back to the Dr next week and hopefully we will know a little more after that!

Every day he stays in is great! You take it easy so he hangs in there until 35! I had them check at our u/s appointment to make sure he was still a boy. :) Then I ordered the crib bedding!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
