the latest. spoiler: it's good.

the good news: I'm free, sort of.

This week I had an appointment with a perinatologist (specialist in high-risk pregnancies) and my doctor. Based on the last month of data, we've determined that I don't need to be on bed rest anymore. Sweet! Of course, things can always change, but that is where we are today. It's almost funny how not concerned (I shouldn't say that, of course the perinatologist took everything seriously) the high-risk doctor was, but, I'm a low-risk high-risk, if you will. Though, Dave and I would rather err on the side of extra cautious, no doubt, so I'll still have plenty of resting in my future. (still waiting for the new couch. fingers crossed we get it this weekend)

My doctor still advised me not to work and since I missed all the deadlines for school, that isn't really an option now (lame timing, but...what can I do?). So...my life will be almost as boring, but I don't have to worry as much as the angle at which I am sitting, how long I've been up, etc. And life can get a little more exciting with trips to the store, leisurely walks and other normal activities. And the same projects, books and tv shows to pass the days. so, wait, what's changed?

But really, we are so glad that things continue to look good! We'll be breathing easier in October, hopefully.

A huge thanks to all who made September so great! Phone calls, texts, book recommendations, exciting mail and project feedback all made the difference. I find it a small victory that there wasn't a day I was bored to tears. I can't say what will happen in the next four months (mmm, I swear it was four months a month ago, but nope, it's still four months) but at least my projects can expand back into sewing and other things.

So still call or text me anytime because I'll probably still be sitting on the couch.
