I received so many kind comments when I posted I’d been put on bed rest due to placenta previa. Thank you… it really helped to connect with people virtually, especially when prevented from getting out to see people face to face! During my time down I did get some felt play food made for Eli, learned how to knit a simple wash cloth, tried my hand at a crochet project that I’ve since abandoned as unworthy of further time investment.
It’s now been two weeks since I was cleared for normal activity after an ultrasound showed that the placenta has indeed moved up and out of the way. I’ve just been so swamped trying to make up for lost time in Christmas prep that I hadn’t yet gotten around to updating my new status on this blog.
We have finally agreed upon our wee one’s first name, but the middle name is still to be determined. From here on out she will be known as Zoe. The name means “abundant life” and is one I have always liked. It seems rather appropriate in this case as while I had thought Eli was very in the womb, this one is already running laps around even him!
I am so thankful that this pregnancy is no longer as high risk as it was, Zoe is doing very well, I am out of bed (!) and my family is able to celebrate Christmas with the extended family. Life is good indeed!
