a little quiet around here

Photobucket
sorry it's been so quiet on this blog. we have been busy with last minute travels and fun before this new little one arrives. and apparently it seems like it might be sooner than we think! 

just last week i was lucky enough to get mastitis without even having a newborn to nurse! very rare, yes, and also very painful! then this week i have been experiencing horrible back pressure and cramps and when i went in to see my midwife she decide to do a fetal fibronectin test to see if i was more likely to go into early labor. she also checked my cervix and told me i was dilated a little over a one and about 60% effaced. my test also came back positive which means bedrest and steroids shots to help the baby's lungs develop and hopefully slow down my contractions some. as excited as i am to meet this little one, i am hoping he or she stays put just a little while longer and gets bigger and stronger.

so it might be just a little quiet around here while i lounge around and continue to bake this little one! hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I only learned about the possibility of getting mastitis in pregnancy during my last pregnancy when I had a blocked duct and the OB sent me for a breast ultrasound. Hope your mastitis is under control soon and you can take the time to rest and take it easy until baby arrives.

rest rest rest, please rest. of course we are all looking forward to your new gorgeous babe, but we all can certainly wait until your babe is ready for the world. i hope your body responds well to rest, although i can only imagine how a lot of rest may make the mind (and children) stir!! take care of you. ;)

Being a mom of a 11 week preemie, every single day counts. Hang in there :) I'll be thinking of you!

I am pregnant with #2 and only 3 weeks shy from when our son was born.

Oh my goodness. I've had mastitis many times. Not fun! But never while pregnant. I hope you are feeling better soon! Rest up as much as possible. Sending good vibes your way ;)
