Happyhopeful, I am hoping the extra protein does your baby good along with the rest although I am sure bed rest is probably not the way you wanted to spend the end of your pregnancy. Glad her measurements are proportional even if they are small.
AFM, I have been upping my protein too this week - got some greek yogurt and have been eating that as my snacks through out the day. Been laying down and reading through school handbooks for my job so I can get some extra rest. I am finding that middle of the night baths is helping my aching joints, especially my hips, feel better so I can go back to sleep. Yesterday I worked through washing all of the baby clothes. Crazy how many loads of wash I did, two loads were towels, diaper changing pads, and sleep sacks, then a load of precious gentle cycle things - hand knitted baby outfits, crocheted blankets and fuzzy blankies, then a load of light colored baby clothes (who knew that baby socks would be so plentiful!) and then a load of dark colored baby clothes. My DH was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of it all - he was home yesterday because there was no power out where he works due to bad storms that went through on Sunday. He was back to work today. I need to dust out the dressers today and get the baby clothes in the dressers. Tomorrow I am going to do the great "return unneeded gifts" in exchange for things I do need. Also yesterday I ordered my cloth diapers from Green Mountain Diapers. I can't wait for them to arrive. Looking at pictures of babies in those diapers makes me so excited. Tonight I am going to a La Leche League meeting where the topic is how to get breastfeeding off to a good start with a newborn.
