No one ever told me...

Well, things have been a little rough around here lately. The bleeding/spotting has continued and now I am hearing from everyone my Mom, that it really is quite normal with IVF.  Top that with the fact that there is more than one in there, and ya, that's extra normal.  Hearing someone tell you that bleeding while pregnant is completely normal goes against everything I have learned thus far about being pregnant.  It just feels wrong, but the babies have had 3 ultrasounds so far and they look great!  

In the mean time, I have to stay on bed rest until the bleeding stops.  It has only been about 2 weeks and  I am ready to be a Mom to my boys again and a wife to my Hubby.  I am tired of laying around. {never thought I would be saying that! ha.}  Oh, top that loveliness with a two day migraine, a trip to the ER, and morning sickness and what can I say?  I'm feeling a bit beat up lately. Please don't misunderstand...I am still thrilled to be a part in growing these little babies, I just would like to enjoy the journey a bit more is all.

I went into this thinking that my pregnancies were always relatively uneventful.  I knew there was a possibility for bed rest {especially with more than one baby} but I did not expect that until the end.  I was completely unprepared for this.  So the purpose of this post is not just for me to whine and feel sorry for myself, but to let you know that this is a real possibility and apparently completely normal.  
Crazy as it sounds.

Pray that you will be back to "normal" soon. I hope it all stops and the babies continue to grow great. Good luck! I was only on bedrest 48 hrs and hated it, can't imagine 2 weeks and still going.
