Ah, bedrest.

Contrary to what you might's not easy or fun! Let me tell you. And I would consider myself very lucky being that it is only the last three weeks of my pregnancy. To one of my girlfriends out there, honey I don't know how you do it!

What's difficult is that you feel absolutely fine (well aside from the fact you literally can't walk), you see the house getting dirty around you, and you can't do anything about it. And you have to be waited on. Sure, that's lovely in theory and I enjoyed it for the first couple of days, but after that you just want to be able to do something for yourself. I haven't been allowed to drive anywhere or even do laundry. You have to sit all day long. There are only so many comfortable positions in bed or on the couch. And if you do get up, it is the third degree and twenty questions as to why are up and what you are going to do, and how long you are going to be up. Yes, I know, it's coming from a place of love...but I'm just getting a glass of water!! lol

Yes, I'm ranting a bit, but I'm am now past 40 weeks and I am one INCREDIBLY uncomfortable pregnant woman that would love to have a forklift to get anywhere because the idea of getting up and walking to the kitchen or bathroom is daunting. I'm well past waddle mode at this point.

God love my Mom, she went out and bought just about every single magazine that Publix and Barnes and Noble had, just so that I would have some entertainment. I'm getting the favor returned to me because I kept my Mom on bedrest for me for several months. Well, I'm getting off easy.

Here are a few pictures of my buddies that have been keeping me company.
This picture is quite a common occurrence. Little Miss Lizzie attached at my hip. And yes, you are correct, that is one large belly.
You can see that Lizzie won't leave my side, precious little thing. Chris and I are sure that she is going to be a bit jealous of the baby. She is a Momma's girl. And that is my fancy spanking new computer that I'm playing with... yea!

Don't get me wrong, it is all worth it, and we should be meeting our little girl this week! F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!!! So many things to look forward too!!

P.S. Rant over.

Here is the Nursery!

We did a Winnie the Pooh theme in pink and brown tones. For someone who has despised pink for her entire life, I certainly have embraced it for my daughter. lol Who knew??!! It's been hard for me not to do pink and kitty cats. You should see her wardrobe!

I painted all of the murals in a chocolate brown to work with the furniture, and this was done during the second trimester when I was feeling great! The bumblebee found it's way throughout the room. I embroidered them onto the curtain, the baby blanket that is on the recliner, in two of the murals, and painted above the closet doors.

The quote that is under Winnie the Pooh says, "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart".

So, here it is!
