Casa De Couchland

Not much to report from Casa De Couch land, except I went to the dr today and my blood pressure is the best that it has ever been. I hate to say it, but maybe sitting on my butt all day long is sort of worth it. The dr was VERY pleased with me, and said that I could even maybe go to the 4th of July BBQ at my inlaws next weekend, if I was good through out the week. So there is a goal in sight.

Baby would not comply with the monitoring today and it was so amusing. He had the hiccups, poor little guy. Every time he would hiccup we would lose his heartbeat. It ended up not registering one time on the monitor. The dr wasn't to upset about it because hello, I been there 2 times already this week and will be back again on Monday. She said she would let him slide today, LOL.

The girls have been very amusing the last couple of days. Alanna is so taking advantage of me not being able to get up and down and will push it to the limit every time. Boy is she in for it when she realizes that I actually can get up in a few short weeks :)

Hannah has been staying around the house a lot, instead of playing outside. I think she is really worried about her mom and little brother. I keep telling her she can go outside, but there is always another excuse to stay close. Sweet angel that she is. She goes to the drs with me everyday and makes sure to be the one to tell the dr if I was up and not resting...Sweet little devil that she is :)

Chris is really enjoying me resting too. He has been so sweet (sort of) with my demands and OCD cleanness of the house. I keep telling him I have all day to scan the kitchen floor

from the couch, and I just store the marks away until he gets home so he can clean them up..Here is him and Alanna last night when I finally admitted I needed nothing else. Poor guy, not really, LOL.

Well, I about used up my time on the computer today. Until Mnday and the next dr report...Have a great weekend.


  1. I could give my own opinion with your topic that is not boring for me.

    I'm so behind on my blog reading! You're on bedrest now??? I'm gonna have to go back and read to find out what happened. In the meantime, you take care of yourself and that baby boy!! Enjoy your time on the couch, because you know that will be so over once the little bundle of joy makes his arrival.

  5. Oh man I have been behind on your blogging! I can't believe how fast time has gone by!
    I had hypertension my first pregnancy, but it never escalated to toxemia. Thank goodness, because I am not sure I would handle bedrest all that well. Hang in there... and behave ;-)

  6. Good luck with going to the 4th of July picnic! I would have such a hard time staying still b/c I have that same OCD gene! ha! By the way, that is an awesome shot of Alanna flying through the air - hee hee!
