I came home from the hospital today, and I’m on strict bedrest for at least the next two weeks while the cerclage heals. I’m only allowed to get up to go to the bathroom and shower. I have a doctor’s appointment in two weeks, and they’ll see how I’m doing and maybe let me off bedrest. I’m not too upset about the bedrest; after all, I’ve been expecting this since the beginning. At least I have my trusty computer by my side, so I won’t be lonely.
I am just so happy to be home. I’m doing my time on the couch in the living room, which is actually a futon with a cheap mattress. As you can imagine, it’s not the most comfortable thing in the world; I’ve got half a dozen pillows to try and help. But anything is better than that labor and delivery bed I’ve been in for the last week. Awful.
