I'm Alive

I am here. I am alive. I am going to make it. No fear.
I am now on modified bedrest. I can go back to work but have to take it extra easy. She will check my bp again next Thursday and see how things are ticking. I am so relieved to have some activity back again. I was about to pull my curls out lying in that bed watching daytime TV. How depressing that is. How do people do that all day? Whew. I would honestly break out in tears of boredom several times a day. I can see how people go crazy and call HSN & QVC all the time. Bless them.
As for my mouth...it is on the mend. I have had a week, I tell ya. I think I am ready to give birth after all the pain and chaos of these past few days. The dentist said he had to think that pulling a tooth with only local anesthetic had to be worse than birthing a baby. We shall just see about that in a few weeks.
Henry is perfect, moving like crazy and I do believe my belly is bigger this weekend. I cannot see my feet! My swelling is pretty much gone for now due to the bed rest. I have not seen my fingers this normal looking in a couple of months. My face is not as puffy and I can see the definition in my feet again. I actually lost 5 pounds yesterday from when I weighed on Tuesday afternoon. Craziness!
