And then a week and a half ago I started to feel achy in my lower back, just before dinnertime on a Wednesday. I napped, ate supper, went to bed early, and by 2 am I was in so much pain I could not sleep any longer. It felt like one long, solid contraction that would increase in intensity, making me nauseous and / or making me cry from the pain. Travis took me to the hospital, where I stayed for another day and a half. There were a couple of hard, scary moments but in the end I was able to come home with a safe and healthy 22 week old baby still growing inside.
But then came bed rest.
I didn't do a ton of typing but I did do a lot of internet browsing and when I found this Etsy shop I fell in love and immediately began making plans.
I have a little list of all the prints I'd like to buy, starting with this one:
A nod to OutKast for the bathroom.
This Chesterton print for the boys' room?
This pretty mermaid one
and this Cinderella quote for the girls' room
I'd put this quote in my living room because I so fully believe it and try to live it.
And for the kitchen, a little Julia Childs
and a couple wise words
This morning I'll be heading back to my midwife and I'm hoping there will be an ease-up on the bed rest, allowing me a little more freedom. (You cannot believe the amount of cobwebs I spotted in the house while lying around! They MUST come down!)
If you could all just say a quick prayer, throw a Hail Mary or Glory Be up for me and my unborn baby and our whole family, that would be so wonderful and I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
Oh and PS - this wasn't a sponsored post, I really do just love those prints!
