Random: it's the best I can do right now

Random thoughts for your general amusement and entertainment, courtesy of being stuck laying on my left side almost 24/7 for days and days and days...

When you can't do anything except lay there, you'd think you wouldn't get as hungry anymore or as often as when you were very active. You'd be wrong.

Also, you have a lot of time to contemplate what exactly you are craving and how badly you want (need) it right then. With no way of accomplishing the goal of getting it. Unless a very nice someone (generally SHH) acquiesces and gets it for you.

I can't wait to meet my baby girl!!

Running out of books that you haven't read yet when you can't go to the store or library for more = bad.

Did you know you can spend hours contemplating the merits and downfalls (literally) of taking a shower? "I'd really like to take a shower, but if I do, I might pass out. That would be bad. Not to mention embarrassing, who wants to be found drenched and naked, unconscious in their shower? But on the bright side, I haven't passed out yet, so I'd probably be okay. And then I'd be clean. Which is nice." I have scintillating conversations like these with myself all the time these days. It's what happens when you have no one else to talk to the majority of the time.

I keep daydreaming about being able to use my new double jogging stroller. Of course, by the time I can use it, it'll probably FINALLY be super hot. Hence making it miserable to try and go for walks or runs. But dream of it I still do. Going from working out an hour a day most days, and running crazy taking care of my kids, family, work, etc. to being completely sedentary 24/7 is not the easiest thing for me.

The angle of your open blinds really makes a difference on how hot your bedroom gets throughout the day. Also, it is not a good idea to open your window for fresh air when there is no screen on it, and your window is level with the ground. Glancing up to see a ginormous red spider running across the wall towards you does not equate with me continuing to lay on my side.

I can't wait to meet my baby girl!!

Yep, these and other exciting thoughts brought to you by The Days of Sara's Bedrest. Stay tuned for another gripping episode... whenever she decides she's bored enough to write another post like this. Unless the series gets cancelled (aka she has her baby), in which case we can all rejoice.

Oh, man. Good luck with your bed rest and keeping that baby girl nice and snug in your tummy for a while!
I also hope you get your shower. :)
**HUGS!**

There is such a thing as having too much time on your hands. Hang in there! You'll be kissing tiny toes before you know it!

You poor thing! Bed rest is so tough. People don't realize how crippling it is and what a number it does on a person mentally. Hang in there, sweet. It's going to get better really, really soon! And then you'll get to meet your baby girl and this will all just be a memory.

I like Random Thoughts from Sara! I think this needs to become a permanent part of your blog once you have beautiful baby girl. I can't imagine how hard this is for you - and I would totally obsess over food. I already do and I'm not even bedridden. Can't wait until you have her - and you post the pretty pictures!

Yikes! My sister-in-law had bed rest and felt like she was going insane. I love the randomness of this post. It makes me feel like I'm not alone!

Yay for the baby girl! Can't wait to see photos!! If you'll allow it of course ;)

Aw Sara :( That sounds like NOT fun times. I wish I could give you a magical remote control that you could just push one button and you'd get ANYTHING you were craving. Or, I wish I lived closer so I could just bring things to you. Though I wouldn't be able to do anything about that spider because just reading about it made me shiver.

Hang in there! Baby girl will be here before you know it <3
