One year ago today.

Thursday, April 25

L: My last profile belly pic. I wasn't very good at keeping up with those things. R: My view from my bed.
A year ago today, I was told by my doctor that I would have to be on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. I cried. Though I'm sure it was mostly because of hormones.

It was 15 days before my official due date, a week before I had planned my maternity leave at work, and I was dreading spending the rest of my prego days laying on the couch. And surprisingly, I was actually kind of sad about not going back to work.

It wasn't a complete surprise. The day before, I had gone to my regular appointment and they said my blood pressure was a bit wonky and they wanted me on temporary bed rest until they could figure out what was going on. I was just hoping it was nothing.

So I spent most of the next couple weeks on the couch watching Netflix or in bed on my phone. Thank you, awesome person who invented smartphones. I also stole an idea from my grandma and bought a ton of puzzle books. Those things kept me from going completely crazy. So, thank you grandma.

It's weird that just a year ago I was still pregnant.
