I know, I've been neglecting. But for a while there nothing was happening--then a couple of days of crazy--now more of nothing. Last Wednesday I had to go to L&D because my blood pressure was up. We ran all the labs, etc, and everything looked good, except my blood pressure. Baby looks great, I'm not contracting. So I was sent home on modified bedrest. Then Friday my heart starting racing, and I had some chest discomfort with it, so we went back. Repeat the labs, monitor everything again...same results, but now I'm on strict bedrest for the week. Hopefully next week I can work a couple of half-days of clinic and work on my rotation stuff from home, but we'll see how that goes.

And bedrest? Boring as hell! I've just about knitted my fingers off over here! Dennis is dragging me through all the seasons of 24 on DVD, but I can only take so much of that at a time--it's sort of a stressful show.

The Gipper doesn't know what to do with himself either. He just got done with a visit from my parents, so it's a letdown to just have us here now, plus he has to stare at me up in the bed all day. He's a sad little puppy. And it's confirmed: babies crying on TV will make him bark his a** off! I guess eventually he'll get used to it, and maybe it will be easier for him to understand when he can find a source for the noise.

But D is taking very good care of me: getting me Sonic slushes every day, fixing all my meals, grabbing me drinks and snacks. And yesterday he trimmed the tree all by himself (well, under my lazy supervision).

Exciting, huh?
