Hello World!

I'm still pregnant!

I have an Internet connection!

During the moment this afternoon when I realized the Internet was going to work it would have been difficult to say which of those two things I was more excited about. . . I feel like I have been readmitted to the world, even though I'm still stuck in a hospital bed.

I've been composing posts in my head for the last eight days, but now that I can actually put something here I am completely overwhelmed by my jumbled thoughts.

I think I'll fill in some of the details of the past week over the next few days. And I hope you want to know every single detail of my life on bedrest, because I'll be putting it here. I'm bored! What else am I going to do?

Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by and left a comment letting me know you were thinking of us -- you have no idea how much that means. It is pretty awesome to know we have such great friends and family and I do believe it helps to have lots of people out there saying prayers and sending general positive thoughts our way.

This blog may feature a little less Harper than usual, but I'll pass along stories when I get them. Here are a couple:

Last night Harper was helping make up some beds at our house and said to my in-laws something like, "I'm really good at this. I could teach this."

Harper has been giving Matt a bit of a run for his money this past week. One day he was taking a shower and when he finished, he emerged to find the carpet in our bedroom was wet. Upon questioning Harper he discovered that she had taken the big plastic cup we use for her bath, filled it with water from the toilet, and tried to pour it over Rebound to give him a bath. I must say, that sort of thing is so much funnier when it happens to someone else. (Sorry Honey.)

I would be remiss if I didn't say thank you to my mother-in-law, Ann, for lending me her laptop with wireless card. You cannot possibly imagine the way the hours flew by this afternoon/evening as I caught up reading emails and blogs. Keep writing people, you are helping me maintain my sanity.

That's enough rambling for tonight, but I'll be back soon.

hi kelsey! i was catching up with all my blogger friends and i noticed that you are on bedrest! i am glad that everything is okay and i hope that you are feeling better. isn't it amazing how much of our sanity depends on the presence of an internet connection? whoever thought that would happen? :) i'm glad to see that you are your little bean (not so bean-ish anymore!) are doing well and i'm sending some positive vibes and some prayers your way. take care and i'll be sure to check in to see how you are doing.

So good to hear from you. I hope that things are going ok. Thank goodness you have internet again now. I'm glad to hear that your family is supporting you and able to help out so much. I'm sure it's tough being away from your family, but at least you and the baby are well. Take it easy. I'll look forward to hearing more.

i was so excited to get an email from you and 'ran' over here to see your update.. i've been worried and checking back every day to see how you're doing...

i've found out 2 people i know are pregnant in the last couple of weeks. one is a 35+yo who just got married, she miscarried (she'd already told about the pregnancy as soon as she found out) in the summer and she's due now in March, so she waited this time to tell and a good good friend is 27 i think and is 12 weeks, its her first one too, and she'd been worried about cervical cancer stemming from a rape, so she and her hubby are also totally thrilled. its good to have such good baby news after some major worries.

Hi Kelsey

I'm so glad that you're back to writing your blog. And I'm glad that you're doing okay. I've been thinking and praying about you a lot over the past week. I love the story about Rebound's bath in the bedroom. Take care of yourself, Love ya tons,

I, too, want to thank your mother-in-law, because I have been wanting updates so badly. I'm glad you'll be Reporting Live, From Bedrest!

YAY! I too am a little conflicted over which is the better news: still pregnant or now with internet. Thanks Ann!
