I am on bedrest. Only for 2 more days, but still. I don't know what I would do if I had to be on it for the rest of my pregnancy. It's incredibly boring. But I am happy that at least it's this week, while the weather is bad and we would be indoors anyways, instead of last week or possibly next week when it was/will be sunny and warm.

Anyways, I was having stronger, more painful BH contractions for a couple of days, and it got to the point where they were consistent, and I could time them. Then (sorry if this is TMI) there was blood and bits of my mucous plug when I went to the bathroom. So the next morning I went to the doctor. They told me to stay down for a few days, and drink TONS of water. They gave me some things to do if I kept having timeable contractions, and said if they didn't stop to go in to labor and delivery. They said to do it even if they don't hurt, or even if they were 15 minutes apart. So luckily, I have only had one real episode of them, and it happened right after I decided to stand to do the dishes. So I guess I will really be staying down for the next few days. Wish me luck on not gaining 10 lbs from inactivity this week!

I hope you're better by now! You seem like you handled the situation well. I might have freaked out like a mad woman.
