Knew it was coming....

At my appointment on Tuesday, my Perinatologist broke the news to me that I would be on bedrest. My cervix was about 2.8 cm long, which is marginal. The bedrest is modified, which basically means I can actually sit up to eat and get up for 15 minutes to cook. But other than that and , I'm down. And truly, what can you cook in 15 minutes besides toast or instant oatmeal? Baby is still growing well and now kicks me on a regular basis.

As far as my big girl (if you ask me, she's still my baby), she starts daycare for 3 days a week in October since it's really hard to find enough people to come over and help. My financial aid should cover most of the cost, and we found a home daycare mother/daughter team that is state certified and 3 minutes from our apartment. I think she'll do really well. And, if all goes well and baby # 2 comes safely, she'll start going there in April while I go to classes. I am taking online classes for the next 2 terms since I can't leave the house now, and won't want to when the baby is a newborn. I don't really prefer online classes, but they are the best option right now. Fall term begins on the 29th. David got me a new laptop today so I can have one for classes and while I'm on bedrest. It's nice to have one that doesn't flash or turn off every 5 minutes!

That's about all that's new with me. I'll have a lot of studying to do and a lot of TV to watch for the next few months:)
