Operation "Boring as hell"

So folks I am now 11 weeks 1 day along :)

In case you don't remember my doctor said "bed rest, bed rest, bed rest." To be more specific he said that my life should be "boring as hell". I admit I am not treating it as strict bed rest. I sit up at the computer. I went out to a movie and dinner with my husband. But for the most part I admit my life is certainly on line with doctor's orders: "boring as hell".

Now I must say I am VERY used to this boring life. I have been unemployed since last May so needless to say I am VERY used to sitting around and not doing much. I have decided that in my complete maternity boredom I will start watching seasons of shows. I tried Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares but I mean that is not the type of show I can handle watching episodes and episodes in a row of.... it's a whole lot of British people saying the F word far to many times LOL at least it was the first episode I watched (and most people who use the F word continuously ALWAYS do). So I was checking out Netflix and I saw FELICITY! I used to LOVE that show! So I watched the pilot and couldn't remember a lot of it (I mean it has been over 9 years since that show ended).... so I decided hey if I have to sit around all the time why not relive my high school/college love of Felicity!! :) So I watched 10 episodes yesterday - YIKES I know! 75 more to go LOL ;) but I got nothing but time!

So I am still quite annoyed that I didn't get that ultrasound but I'm starting to get over it. I don't really have much of a choice. Currently the only thing I have that makes me feel like my tater tots are okay is Gabby laying near my belly. Weird but true.  My first trimester screening is Oct. 14th with my perinatologist I have a maternal/fetal consult and an ultrasound. So that is what I have to look forward to, that is my next milestone appoinment to make it to. For now I have Operation "boring as hell" and for the next however many days: Felicity ;)

Riley & Peyton mommy and daddy love you. I miss you and I feel like you're with me when Gabby cuddles my belly. Is that your way of showing me you're watching over us? If so... thank you.


  1. I thank The Lord for that cat!!! I know that sounds silly, but it's true. She is watching over those babies and bringing peace to their mama. What a blessing she is!!

    I can't wait to see pictures from your next ultrasound. I bet those little tater tots have gotten so cute by now:):):)

    Thank you for sharing all of your precious babies with us. I love them all and their mama too:):):)

    God bless you!

  2. netflix streaming recommendation: sons of anarchy!

  3. I was on bed rest for 11 weeks and I watched a lot of Netflix! But Felicity wasn't on when I was on bed rest!! I loved that show!!
    Thinking of you and your tater tots!

  4. Well cherish the boredom because after the babies are born you will not be living a boring life any more!

    Take care, glad u have Gabby, I may be having to put down my 8 yo cat Diesel, so I am sad about that, will know more when the biopsy gets back in.

  5. Well you are are obviously going to get your money's worth out of your Netflix subscription for the next few months. Here's to plenty of boredom and healthy little tater tots.
