Catch Up

So, as most of you know I am confined to bed rest for the next two weeks!! So in order to limit the boredom I figured I would catch up on my blogging! First off, for those of you who don't know, we are having a baby boy. He’s due on September 1st but I'm thinking that we won't last that long. Currently I have already showed symptoms of toxemia or preeclampsia. I have very high blood pressure, edema (swelling limbs), and headaches and most recently a bit of protein in my urine. I know this might be too much info but it was because of this that my Doctor put me on bed rest. Hopefully we can make it to 37 weeks which is in about two weeks. We are so excited to have this little boy come into our lives. We have decided that we will name him Grayson Paul Pierce. I already feel like he has a personality. He is a very active baby, I have to routinely get stress test at the hospital to make sure that my high blood pressure isn't affecting him, and all the nurses say that he is perfectly healthy. That he is very active and is currently not in any stress! He tends to be more active in the evening than in the mornings, which gives me hope that he will be a late riser like his dad and not up at the crack of dawn like his mother. I have also discovered that he listens to his dad already. Anytime I haven't felt him move for a while I have David talk to him and he wakes right up, it is also effective when he is kicking me super hard David tells him to stop and most times he listens. So here I am on bed rest.... I am requesting any book or movie recommendations and visits. I have decided that this is the most boring thing ever and that won’t change until the baby comes!!!!!!!!So, please come and visit me!

So sorry you have to be on bed rest. I would go crazy. Not that I wouldn't mind a bit more rest in my schedule...I'm crazy tired...but ALL the time? No way. I should have a day off in two weeks. Perhaps I'll come play. Maybe I'll help you with Grayson's quilt. I hope he holds off until after the 20th so you can attend our baby shower!
