The Good News Is. . .

I'm still pregnant.

The baby turns 25 weeks old on Thursday, which is good news, too. And I'm still pregnant.

Complete hospital bedrest is a strange thing. I get to stay in bed all day, watch what movies I like and have people who bring me glasses of cold water. I've had a healthy portion of company most days (those are the good days) and I get plenty of peace and quiet. But it's driving me a little crazy that I have to be here and that my children are missing me at home. I wish there was some way I could make this easier for them. I wish I could make it easier on Peter.

That said, I am strongly hoping that I get to be pregnant for a long, long time still. I honestly cannot imagine what it will be like after five, seven, nine more weeks of this strange new life, but for now, I've got one week down already. If I can keep from getting an infection, I will have many more weeks to go.

I'm hoping that tomorrow night Peter and I will have a little quiet time to go over all of your excellent Baby Name Suggestions and that I will get to post our List. I really appreciated all of your thoughtful ideas. I can't wait until we have a solid short list of names to think about!

Oh wow, I'm just catching up. So glad to see that baby is staying in there. I'll be hoping and praying that the two of you make it to that 34 week goal, and that everything with the family at home goes okay too. You guys sound like a strong bunch!

If you need some never ending baby name fun (I've been obsessed) try out these two sites. Guaranteed to pass off hours of bedrest boredom:

It's great to hear the baby's still cookin'!

Have you thought of getting a webcam?

Cheering you on from Michigan!...

Oooh, a webcam is a great idea! Set one up at home and one up in your hospital room (maybe your laptop has a built-in camera?), then use Skype (for free!) to "visit" your family when they aren't with you.
