Time to slow it down

Hi Everyone. I am gonna try to make this post short and sweet. Eh, maybe not so sweet. I am behind on updates (as usual) but as of today, I am 24 weeks. I will get week 23 posted with pics as soon as possible but for now it has been a sit and relax situation for this momma.

Adam and I made another ER trip on Saturday. They suspected another UTI and had me hooked up to the monitors and checked my cervix for dilation (sorry, TMI) Everything looked good and I was sent home with more antibiotics.

That evening, the next day and today has sort of been down hill. I started noticing that everything that I tried to do as far as house work or moving in general brought on some cramping sooooo... I called my Doctor today and we are heading down to the hospital again tomorrow.

Before everyone starts worrying (believe me, I'm doing enough of that for everyone), Isaac's heart rate is perfect and his movement is crazy as usual. Actually, I laugh because he seems to "just know" when mommy NEEDS to feel him kick for peace of mind.

I am foreseeing an ultrasound for tomorrow, which was originally scheduled for October 17th to make sure my darn placenta is doing its job this time and to make sure there are no clots forming.

I feel like I know what is coming but I will wait until my appointment to let everyone know for sure what the plans are from here on out.

Needless to say, the monitor, the exam, and the whole situation on Saturday had me a little freaked out and I suddenly came to the realization that I had maybe taken on too much for this pregnancy.

I had started on a new adventure with selling Tupperware, which actually has been pretty awesome. It helped us really get some house projects underway and some things that Isaac needed too for his big arrival. Not to mention, I was having  a lot of fun doing it. started to get a little cooler, and everyone and their mother decided they needed a hat. Which had me feeling great since I love to crochet and it was really cool to see B Bands take off for another season.

With that all said, I was becoming increasingly busy and lost focus about something that should have been right in front of me. I seemed to forget that I am a high risk pregnancy and my health and Isaac's health was and is the most important thing right now.

So, I decided to slow it down. I am sure the doctor will decide how slow I really need to be but for now, I am putting up my feet and relaxing as much as possible and trying not to fret about my husband's laundry routine because in the scheme of things, it really doesn't matter if whites get mixed with darks...right? Right?

I promise to keep everyone updated as much as possible but for now, its back to bed for me and my jumping bean.


  1. Praying for you and your feisty little Isaac! I will be praying that peace will be yours and that you and your little man get all the rest you need! God bless you Tia!


  2. Praying for you and Issac Tia! Please rest and relax and after Issac is here you can worry about your whites and darks! Who knows, by that time you might have your hubby trained to do laundry the right way!
