And just when the finish line is almost within viewing distance, I've hit another snag in my pregnancy. The dreaded bedrest (kaboom!).
I've been getting some cramping a few days before my 36th week and during my 36th week checkup, my OB declared after examining me that the baby was already lying low and that my cervix "admits tip" which meant that it was starting to dilate. Considering that I'm supposed to reach 39 weeks because of my gestational diabetes, going into labor at 36 weeks was too much of a risk to take.
Thus, the bedrest, which is more of a house arrest really since I can move around the house and go on short walks. But my usual commute with walking to and from work is definitely no longer allowed.
