Bed rest sucks. There is no other way around it. I don’t think I’ve met one person who has enjoyed their experience, myself included.
One of the things I miss the most is being able to shower on a regular basis. I get one shower a week, two if I’m lucky. That’s pretty much all my legs can handle at this point. I can stand for a solid five minutes, then I’m done. After I’ve taken my shower, I feel like I just ran a marathon. Extreme exhaustion sets in and then I’m grateful for my bed.
It’s really no surprise that we haven’t taken any pregnancy photos this time around. Even on my shower days, I don’t actually get ready. The only time I leave my house is to go to the doctor and I don’t get dolled up for that occasion.
Here is my one and only pregnancy photo from the weekend. Week 31. We hit week 32 today. If I’m lucky, there are only two more weeks of bed rest in my future.
Maybe another picture or two as well.
