"rest" --- what is that?

Well, no photos, but an update.
Went to the specialist on Friday, baby is behind again, about 3 oz's smaller then they would like to see. Placenta is rapidly aging. They are concerned. So they have put me on rest. Dont want me exerting alot of energy. Today I called to see what they are concerned about, placenta separating? preterm labor? None of the above. They feel that it is critical to get the baby everything as possible for him to grow properly and if I over do or dont eat enough or stress out my body will use it and the placenta that is already struggling will pass through less.

PLUS, I start twice a week non stress tests and one ultrasound watching the blood flow from the placenta to the baby, each week till they decide the baby needs to be born. So, we might have baby sooner then we thought.

If I get through this week I'll be golden. Braden hopefully will be starting Pre-K next week!!!! Baring no room at enrollment tomorrow. (Keep your fingers crossed). I think I can do this with one kid. But two when your not supposed to do much has been horrible.

Not to mention an unforeseen complication with my car on saturday on a road trip to Elk. GRRRR when it rains it pours!
