a room with a view


I have had so much fun reading all of your baby name suggestions and watching the little gender poll ticker these past few days. On Wednesday as luck would have it I showed up for my regular OB appointment and because of some complications and tests was not allowed to leave. I have been admitted into the hospital now for monitored bed rest until this little one makes his/her debut. Hopefully not until the end of next week so that we can clear the 35 week mark and get us a healthy little preemie to take home.

So I am laying in bed, in my new room with a view. I have been ridiculously blessed by my family and friends rallying around us sending well wishes and treats and lots of prayers. And my kids are in the safest care possible with my Mom and Dad in law at the moment taking a huge load off of this Mommies mind!

I wanted to check in and let you know that I will do my best to update my blog here and there if I can but the way these things can go can be so up and down. Feel free to follow me on twitter (@orange_poppy) or instagram (@rebagough) for more frequent updates.

And if your the praying type I do have a specific prayer request for sleep while staying here in the hospital for what could be weeks - you would think it would be so easy to finally get to take a long nap after five years of being a tired Mom to so many kids but it is proving a bit harder than I thought.

Now back to reading the Hunger Games I am halfway through the first book and just started this morning. The nurse keeps telling me to go slow I still have a lot of time to kill. :)

Happy Friday everyone I hope you all have a blessed weekend!

  28. Hey Rebekah- I don't know if you remember me, we traded one of your necklaces for some of my baby tuxedo tee shirts a few years ago. I just wanted to reach out and let you know when I was pregnant with my now 2 year old daughter, I was on hospital bedrest and she was born two months early. She was in the NICU for seven weeks (which stinks, and I can't imagine with kids at home) but she is a vibrant, healthy, hilarious, and dare i say genius little girl now. Just wanted to let you know that everything is going to be ok. Email me if you need any reassurance.
