I have been away for a short while...when I started having issues with the mobile site. Lucky for me I got a laptop and internet for Christmas. Cool 

So I'm here now, going into my 34th week of pregnancy. I am on medical leave from my job that I had barely started on Sept. 10. I'm supposed to be on bed rest due to pain when walking or just moving around if I do too much of anything. This has been an uncomfortable pregnancy to say the least. I'm really hoping I go into labor as soon as baby is out of any kind of danger zone. I've been in pain, uncomfortable, and bored since I left my job at the beginning of Dec. Lucky for me my baby shower is tomorrow and I'll be taking a road trip with my family (parents included). DH's family is throwing us a baby shower. Doctor recommended not to travel after 32 weeks, but his family kind of insisted. I know they mean well, but I would find it difficult going out of town now or after our baby boy is born. So we finally said yes to tomorrow's date. Bed rest for me has been partial...really just taking it easy and listening to my body. So hopefully it won't be too bad. It will give me something to do and hopefully enough baby stuff to keep me busy organizing and washing Embarassed when we get back.

Well I look forward to keeping up with you gals and having something else to do while on bedrest!

Congratulations on getting to 34 weeks, you're so close now! Sorry you've had such a rough time, but of course your LO will be worth it. I hope the next few weeks go quickly and you aren't left waitin too long for baby's arrival. Enjoy your baby shower and take it easy

You've made it so far and are getting so close. So sorry you've had to deal with all the pain, but as we all no it it is worth it in the end. Hope you have a lot of fun at the baby shower. Take lots of stops on the car ride.
