I can't sit still.  I started bleeding again today, not much, but there, and got really worried.  This med is causing pain, too, because it makes my uterus contract.   So, I had pain and then bled, after (of course) running around a little.  I called, and it seems the bleeding wasn't supposed to stop all at once.  It's gradual, and the pain is from the med. 
She said put my feet up and relax this weekend.  nono   Yeah right!!!!!  I'm looking on the internet for straight jackets!!!!!  Everyone who loves me wants me to relax and lay down, and I keep on finding things I "should" be doing.  I 'm just antsy as all get-out.  This is tough.  Maybe I should take my mother up on her offer to come up.  DH is finally getting it (that I can't be doing the housework and mommying), but only just.  Hoosiers is on, maybe that will be good for just a rest.  Heating pad may help the pain, along with the codine.

That last sentence did it say codeine or caffeine????  tongue
Honey you have got to get off your feet and let your body heal!  I know it's easier said than done with some of us who like to go all the time.  But you have to "will" yourself to do what's right.  Your mind is what is needing to keep going your body wants you to sit and put your feet up.  Find something intellectually stimulating to do while sitting.  maybe that will help.
Let your mother or DH do what they have to for you.  It's hard but it won't be long before you will be back at it.
Please take care!

Ellen: It is better to rest now and let your body heal than continue to overdo and end up in the hospital. How much rest does anyone get in a hospital???? Sounds like it might be time to send the duct tape brigade to your house. lol If you don't feel like going to your mom's house, then ask her to come to yours and help out. Surely between your dm and your dh, they can do everything that you think you should be doing.

Now Behave Yourself!

Well now the last person who would help me relax would be my mother. LOL. You need to sit down with a couple of kids books and read stories to your little guy, or play some games with him or watch his TV shows with him, if you can stand them. Let him help you relax. Tell him Mommy needs you to help her relax and rest and I bet he will take good care of you. Quit thinking of things to do. Hugs MK

Ellen, I think the PCE needs to come there with super glue! Find the most comfortable spot you like and we will make sure you cannot move! Ok, you can move your arms and head! LOL We'll even add a few pink feathers to dress it up!
Now find a book or a few movies and sit down please! Love you hon, Gail

Ellen, I know just what you are talking about. Give me a couple days and I can be good as gold, but then watch out. I just cannot stay still, especially when ordered to stay still. But you really do need to rest, you and your body have been through lots lately. Give yourself time to heal. I have you in my prayers. Lay low this week-end.

Hi Ellen.  You really need to take it easy.  I know its easier said than done.  But the sooner you do what the doctor ordered, the quicker  you will get better.  Since its such a rainy weekend for us, why dont you just camp out, you on the couch and the little guy on the floor.  Tell him your camping.  Read books, have snacks, maybe a movie he likes.  But no getting up for you.  Also, watch the codeine (constipation)  You dont want to be straining to go.

Love ya, hang in there
