Bed rest :(

So I had my weekly check-up today, and was feeling pretty good at the time. No real contractions-just those annoying Braxton Hicks. I have felt like I'm getting the flu or something, but I haven't been feeling too bad. When I saw the doctor, they said I'm 2cm dilated, I'm anemic, I have a horrid sinus infection, I need to use my inhaler for my asthma again, and I am on bed rest. So I went from feeling pretty good to being completely scared and sad. It is way too early for Alex to come, and I just hope he will be born healthy. I feel like a failure. I don't understand why my body has been having such a hard time handling this entire pregnancy. So now here I am-can't work, can't give my son a bath or play or even pick him up, and I can't even get my baby's nursery ready. Financially, this is going to hurt us pretty bad. But what are we to do? I just don't know. I have no idea what Jamie and I will do if Alex isn't ok. I'm feeling pretty emotional! Just want to cry and cry. I'm so scared that he is going to come sooner rather than later.

On a happier note, maybe I will be able to catch up on Aaron's scrapbook and start a few pages for Alex. I'll just get a TV tray and move some of my scrappin' stuff into my bedroom! :) I have to do something to keep me sane.

Well, that's all for now, just wanted to let everyone know what's going on. Maybe when I get my strength up I will be able to make something with my new Changito, Busy Bees, and Penny Black stamps! That will make me feel better! Thanks for stopping by!
