House Arrest

An update on the twins and I... I am on house arrest. It is not bedrest, but I need to rest as much as I can. Pineapple is only in the 11th percentile... Coconut is in the 47th.

So, they want me to rest. Hopefully, this will keep my body from using energy and give it to the babies.

I'm doing pretty good so far. Than God for cable, PSP, and internet. I have been keeping myself pretty busy. I think it has helped that I have school stuff to do... Therefore, I have been procrastinating. I'm very good at that.

Yesterday, I did get out for a bit. I had to take the 3 hour gestational diabetes test. I didn't pass the first one. 4 vials of blood and 24 hours later I got the results... I PASSED!!!!!! I'm so happy!!!! I was worried about trying to provide enough nutrients for the babies while being extremely careful about my diet.

I never thought of this before "So, they want me to rest. Hopefully, this will keep my body from using energy and give it to the babies". I haven't gained much weight and my doctor is concerned that the baby may not be putting on weight too. But I do eat a lot (in my own opinion).

I'm not really in house arrest but since I've quit my job, there's not much to do so I'd rather stay home just to be on the safe side. Maybe I should get a PS2. :)

You're almost in the finish line and everything will be worth it once you see your twins.

The PSP is the one to get. It is hand held and has great graphics. You can get games or movies for it. I get games/movies from a used games store. I like it becuase I can take it with me and watch movies too.

Yes, rest when you can. I feel so much better knowing that I am resting. Good luck!

YOu take care of yourself! I'm glad, at least, you've got some entertainment! :0)

I'm glad you passed the test, the diet sucks! But you would have probably been able to do twice the calories as me. Take it easy for now.

My wife had something similar towards the end. She caught up on I Love Lucy and took all of my 300 CDs out of the big 50 CD books and put them back into individual jewel cases including making new spines for each case. Plenty of free time.

Take care and try to enjoy it. You'll be really busy soon enough.
