Still here...

...not much new to post. I'm still here and am thankful to have six days behind me--six more days that the baby's been able to grow and develop and six days closer to when I deliver (whenever that may be!!)
I've had lots of phone calls and visitors, but am ALWAYS happy to receive more.
I had a very little bit of bleeding last night, which FREAKED ME OUT. Thankfully, Duncan was here and was actually able to spend the night. I'm not sure why it freaked me out, I think I just figured: "I'm on bed rest. I only get out of bed to go to the bathroom. I'm taking it easy. Therefore, I shouldn't bleed." But my day nurse was very frank with me today, saying--you've got previa, you're going to bleed. A little bit isn't bad. It's when it becomes very heavy and doesn't stop that it's an issue of needing to deliver the baby quickly. So, my struggle with anxiety continues and learning to rely on the Lord continues, as well.
I had a sweet visit with my girls today. We watched a Barney dvd on the laptop and ate Cheeburger Cheeburger. It was way yummy. Oh yeah, Daddy and Ducky were there too =).
In other news, the maternity p.j.s pants I ordered from Old Navy are in Baltimore and should arrive at the house tomorrow. I'm very excited to be out of the hospital gown. I've decided it makes me feel sick to always be wearing it. I'm excited to actually wear some clothes. I think I get to take a shower again tomorrow. That's exciting.
This post is very boring, I know. Maybe my next post will be about my i.v. That would CERTAINLY be more interesting, I'm sure.

Hi, Nancy!
I'm so glad you came over to my blog! It's really nice to meet you. I just spent some time reading through your blog. Your girls are just precious!

I'm so sorry you're on bedrest. I will be praying for you! I've only been in the hospital since Friday, and it's the most boring place ever, and I miss my little guys terribly.

You'll be in my prayers and I look forward to keeping in touch.

Hang in there! Keep thinking about the little one inside you and how much God loves him... I can only imangine how restless you must be feeling. It's awesome how God has provided care for your little ones while you are in the hospital, especially that Duncan can be with you.

I really liked a book called "the Curious Incident of the Dog at Night Time" it's a mystery written by Mark Haddon, pretending to be an autistic 15 year old boy. Ignore the swear words and you have a very interesting story!

Hang in there. Before you know it, you'll be so busy with three little ones that you'll CRAVE a little R & R time!

Thoughts and prayers,

Hey Nancy,

Just got back from vacation. My first reaction to hearing that you're on bed rest, in the hospital no less, was "MAN, That SUCKS!" I even said this aloud. I tell you this despite your focus on the positive to let you know that I'm feeling for you and that it's still okay to think it stinks sometimes. But yeah, enjoy that sleep time and reading time. You may end up missing it later. Here's a appropriate quote from the BS lesson I just finished reading: "The maturing Christian doesn't pray 'How can I get out of this?' but 'What can I get out of this?'" I trust that God will give you a lot out of this. God ain't no dummy...:) I'm still praying for you.
