Hello. My name is Rachel and I am currently on home bedrest. I am 20 weeks along and I am leaking amniotic fluid. They said the baby looks strong and healthy, which is good, and right now we are just waiting for the hole to close up and the fluid to build back up.
At first I didn't think it would be this hard, but I am losing my mind. In my home are also my husband, my best friend, my best friend's 14 year old daughter and my 18 month old daughter. Everyone is trying to make the situation as easy as they can, but I am miserable. My husband and best friend are trying to keep up with the house, but I am so particular with how things are done that by the time they come home from work and then go to the gym they don't have the energy to do anything. That is a whole new issue with me too. I have to be home all day and as soon as they walk in the door from work they are back out at the gym and I am STILL stuck at home. I think secretly they are jealous of me that "I get to sit at home all day and do nothing" and I think I might murder them in their sleep before this is all over. Lol. Just kidding. I am just grouchy and I am glad that I finally found a group where I can vent to people who know what it's like.
