Like I was gonna jump anyway

Things right now are ...... not terrific. They're not horrible or tragic but they could definitely be better. It turns out that the reason I'm having bleeding is that the baby's placenta has come partially detached from my uterine wall. If it gets worse there is a real danger of losing the baby. However, I am not going to let it get worse. I've been placed on modified bedrest for the next 2 weeks at least. That means I can get up and move around for an hour or so at a time but then I have to lay down afterwards for at least 2 hours. Even when I'm up and about I have to really limit what I do. That means no sex, to heavy lifting, no exercise, no repetitive up and down movements, no jumping, no coughing, no hard laughing, no nothing. Damn, and I really love jumping.

(I had to stop and take a quick throw up break here. That's probably on my list of banned activities too.)

So I certainly don't want to sound dire here. The good news is that we know what's going on and we know what to do and try to fix it. I'm just going to take it super easy and we'll see what the next two weeks bring. I'm doing ok. A little stressed out but otherwise all right. I'll just take it one day at a time and it will be ok.

Tomorow Joseph has his surgery. It's minor and I know it will be ok but if you have some spare good vibes with you I sure would appreciate you sending them my little guy's way. Poor little bugaboo.

Ok, so, sorry but the title of this post made me laugh continuously after I had read the first paragraph. Is that OK? You shouldn't make jokes if its not OK for me to laugh, you know how tactless I am.

Hey, has the Bacon Salt come yet?
