We also purchased a new vehicle for our growing family this weekend: on Ebay. And the whole transaction just went great! We didn't get a great "deal," but we also didn't get ripped off by a dealer. We paid what Edmunds said it should be worth. Tony had to fly to Memphis, TN on Sunday to pick it up and drive it home. It was as described and completing the paperwork went great. So if you ever wondered what kind of person would buy a car on Ebay, we would!
At my doctor's appt. yesterday I got my movements restricted. I am officially on "modified bedrest." This means for the next seven weeks I am only supposed to do things that are necessary- and apparently my weekly trips to Walmart are not "necessary." I can take Sydney to school, but I can't run my usual errands after I drop her off. I can take care of simple household tasks, but no laundry and no cooking. I don't have to be in my bed 24/7, but I do have to lay down as much as possible. This was prompted by some pretty serious contraction action I have been experiencing since 3:30 in the morning on Thursday. Tony put me on restricted duty on Thursday until I saw my doctor yesterday and we heard what he had to say. And I must say, it really has helped. I feel better, not as many contractions, and definitely less stressed and more relaxed. So today I made a lot of lists. And a list for my lists. If I can't do it myself, I will make lists so I can try to be sure someone else knows what needs to be done. I think I am on my eighth list at the moment. I am sure there are more to follow. Hopefully this "modified bedrest" will do the trick and I will not need to be placed on full bedrest or the next step which is hospital bedrest. We only have seven very short weeks to go before 34 weeks which is when my doctor will be okay with the boys making their debut.
