Nearing the End:
Bed Rest & Bathroom Baby Bump Photos.

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

As I near the end of my pregnancy, I can't help but look back on my earlier pregnancy pictures. You know the ones. The ones that capture the moment you pass a (sometimes random) bathroom mirror, pull out your iPhone and think to yourself, "Oh, there you are, baby." And those small moments, often in the public library's restroom, transform you, little by little, into a mother.

{The first time I wore maternity jeans and noticed my baby bump.}

On Monday, we had a little scare that sent me to the hospital for an ultrasound and a fetal stress test. The results indicated that, although baby girl is fine, my fluids - yes, I said it - are lower than what the doctor would like to see. So, I was sent home on strict orders of bed rest and drinking a GALLON of water a day. I go in and see if I've replenished my fluids tomorrow. If not, I'll likely be induced (not my favorite option, by far) by tomorrow evening. My sister already has her flight scheduled for tomorrow (which we'll change if the doc thinks I can wait a few more days), my bag is packed and, friends, this just got really, really real.

Stay tuned... Lots of love, Kathleen
