31 weeks!

Another week down! 8 more to go...I tried to figure out a way to make it seem like it's not *that* much longer, like instead of saying 8 more weeks, maybe only 56 days? Or only 2 months? Yea...but it's still a long a** time to be on bedrest, lol. Oh well, each day that passes is one more day that the baby gets to grow stronger and that's what matters.
My appointment yesterday went well. My cervix measured 2.8, which is shorter than 2 weeks ago, but still longer than when I was first placed on bedrest so I'm happy with that. The Dr didn't seem to be concerned either; as long as it stays above 2.5 there's less of a chance of pre-term labor.
Baby L is now weighing approximately 3 lbs 1oz, up 9ozs from 2 weeks ago! And guess what? He turned head down! YAY! Now he just needs to stay like that! I can tell he's getting bigger from the kicks and punches he's giving me, they're not so small anymore, lol.
As for me, I'm still bored. :) I mean, there's only so much TV watching and magazine reading a person can do! On Netflix I got addicted to the show 'Weeds' but it stopped at the end of season 5 and now I'm scouring the internet to find seasons 6 and 7 to watch! (Anyone know where I can illegally watch TV shows online? :) ) By the way Netflix, get up to date! Seriously. So frustrating. I also have come to enjoy 'Mad Men', but my husband has gotten hooked on it too and doesn't want me to watch it without him, lol, so I'm stalled out on episode 13 for least all the episodes are available for this one, but it doesn't come back on the air until "early 2012" according to AMC's website! (Yes, I look these things's not like I have anything else to do) So...any show suggestions once I get done with Mad Men? :) I heard Dexter might be a good one...
Anywho, my next appointment is on Sept. 20th and hopefully all will be well at that one too. I'll leave ya with my 31 week pic. TTYL peeps!

You look amazing and all the news from the Dr. sounds great!! I wish I had some ideas on shows for you, but it sounds like your standards are higher than you know, I watch mostly trash tv! Lol! :)

Brothers and Sisters was good for the first 4 years but then it started to suck in year 5. I couldn't handle watching it anymore but Fred stuck it out.
A friend recommended The Shield. I have no clue what it's about but he hasn't steered me wrong yet.
Also, if you've never watched 24, you don't know what you're missing.
Good luck! m.

Dexter is a great show… a little bloody and not for kids, but very enjoyable.

A friend suggested Hoarders – I tend to agree – it’s oddly addicting.

If you enjoy kind of nerdy things check out The Guild – the episodes are only 5 – 8 minutes long so you can watch an entire season in an hour for sure.

The Tudors is another one that is really good. It’s all about Henry VIII and his crazy wives.

If I think of any others, I’ll let you know.

I don't know if Justified or Breaking Bad are on there but both of those are AWESOME! So is Vampire Diaries if you like hot vampires (I do!) you are doing so good!! xoxo!

I just started "Weeds" and I like it. So sad to hear that I can't see the recent seasons. Grrrr! (Shake fist in air.) I loved "Six Feet Under." That was a great series.
