The end of pampering

Tomorrow I will be free to not lay down the entire day, roll over when I want to, stretch my aching pinched nerve, and take a SHOWER! The warden brought in my husband to guilt me into not taking a shower so I wouldn't "risk it." And while I sound like I am bemoaning the fact that I've had luxurious bed rest, I've actually really appreciated the fact that my sister has used three out of her four days off to take care of her baby sister! She is now requesting naming rights for my first born. :)

In other fun news, I think I'm getting a UTI which I've only had once in my life. I'm downing unsweetened cranberry juice like tequila shots and have now been banned from the cookie jar and all other sugary things. Fun times people. 

And yes, I'm still incredibly chipper and hopeful that this will work. While I'd like to think that I'm feeling implantation cramps, it's probably those stinky bubbles that plague my system. Isn't that a lovely way to celebrate the Hallmark holiday? 

And speaking of Valentine's day? Boo Hiss!



  1. Yay! So glad you are in great spirits. I was thinking about you all weekend! Glad to hear your sister is being such a great help. What a great sis!

  2. Aw, what a nice sister! Glad you'll be getting back to normal soon.

  3. My acupuncuturist always asked me every visit if I felt "happy"...when I asked him why, he said "Happy women get pregnant".

    Stay happy!!! :o)

  4. Sounds like things are going well sister! I have to stay away from the sweets right now too.... stinks. Looking forward to the good news soon :)

  5. Oh the shower was lovely after the ET!!! Oh sorry about the potential UTI :( Be careful what you do once you do get up; do you have a heart rate restriction? I wore a HB monitor at first to discover what activities would and would not take me to the edge of my allowance. Even blow drying my hair in a hurry raised it more than you'd think! So I sat down and rested my arm and the chair back and everything was fine. Lol

  6. Yay for such an amazing sister! Boo for the UTI (but isn't that a pg symptom???)...Hope the cranberry juice does the trick! Keep taking it as easy as you can and keep sprinking that pixie dust!!

  7. Jen you are so funny and you made me laugh today... boo hiss indeed!! Hope that pesky UTI cleans up!

  8. Can't wait for that good news to keep comin! YEE HAW!
