I had more spotting. I am now officially on bedrest until at least Thursday. Sigh. Apparently, my placenta is irritating my cervix and causing the spotting.

On the bright side, the doctor told Joe that at this point the risk of miscarriage, and he thinks she’s lumping a ruptured placenta in with that, is very, very low. That’s reassuring. She also told Joe that Smudge is a healthy and happy baby, just what every parent wants to hear. I’m sure everything’s going to be fine, but it definitely can’t hurt to take it easy.

    I’m so sorry. I will definitely keep praying. I’m sure it will get boring being on bedrest but just keep in the back of your mind that you have to do what you have to do for little Smudge. Try to stay positive.

    If you ever need to talk, just call. If We can ever do anything for you, just say the word. And if you ever need to retreat into fantasyland — say, thinking of ways to kill Joe — we can even supply ideas … =)

    Yikes! Do what you need to take care of yourself. At least Smudge is happy in there even if your body is trying to freak you out.
