Pierre has really gone crazy with blogging. He’s quite up to date, en vogue, tres currant w/ the stories! So, after a 3 month hiatus in the high Alps of Pregnancy, I too finally have a second to tell my own tale of how it all went down, and how Max and Manu finally made it through the portal of life.

The Power of One
The Power of One

But like Superman, when he became so angry at some personal injustice that he flew at supersonic speed against the earth’s rotation — causing it to reverse it’s spin, and thus reverse time, we have to go back a few months, when I was tipping the scale at 160 lbs and still had 2 fish swimming around in my basket.

My entire pregnancy had been fluent, effortless, and I assumed it was going to continue as Pierre and I made our way to Parinatal, a clinic specializing in high-risk pregnancy. 2 weeks prior the doctors had instructed me to take it easy and rest. I had found it impossible to stay put, as though bed rest would be the death knell of my independence.

Pierre began to worry, asking, “How much will it take to get you to go lay down?”
“I dont know.” I said. I waited, looking at him. How much would it take?
He offers, “$20 bucks … How about $20 bucks, will that get you down? Go lay down for an hour and I’ll give you $20 bucks”

That worked a few days…

Max, not quite ready for the world.
Max, not quite ready for the world.

At Parinatal, the doctor took one look at the ultrasound and he says to me, “Your cervix is only 7cc, I need you to check into ER today. Don’t waste time, quit your job (like I have one), stop everything. Go to ER”.
As soon as I can throw everything in a bag, I arrive at the ER, they take my vitals, shoot me up with steroids (to help the lungs and brain of Max and Manu develop quickly in case of pre-term delivery), and put me on strict bed rest. I am only at 27 weeks.

I am hooked up to 3 monitors around my belly. 2 are for the heartbeats of the kiddos and the other is to measure my contractions. It records all this on a trail of paper (see pic below) which streams out 24 hours per day killing 100s of trees in it’s wake.

Meanwhile, the twins are alive under my skin. They kick hard enough now that they’ve bruised my organs and a rib. Best of all is when their fists and elbows push up through my stomach and swim under the skin, a bit like Freddie Kruger #3 when all the souls he’d captured were trying to escape his body. I watch intently — their captivated audience.

Bed Rest ain’t for the meek.
Bed Rest ain’t for the meek.

After 3 days here I, without solicitation, have an OBY, a high risk specialist, a lactation specialist, a creative arts organizer, a chaplain, a manicurist, an adviser for preterm delivery, a social worker, and countless nurses all stop by my bedside to insure my well-being while on bed rest. The hospital wants to insure that patients don’t grow depressed (which is very common). For me, bed rest is a holiday. My room even has a better view and address than our apartment!

Bed rest ain’t cheap though. It’s so not cheap, that Pierre and I set up a poll for our readers to guess just how cheap it isn’t. Unfortunately, Pierre was too excited and he spilled the beans, so you know by now….

$5000+ per day. Had I known, I would have been demanding Henna tinctures and monkeys to pick lint from my hair.

So, I am on bed rest for the next several weeks, if not months. I must say, I have not slept this well in years. Is it worth $5000 per night? … It depends on who’s paying.

I’m brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    I’m new to building web sites and I was wanting to know if having your blog title related to your content really that important? I notice your title, “%BLOGTITLE% ” does seem to be spot on with what your blog is about however, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  48. Kevingropy on March 1st, 2019 9:45 am

    [url=https://prostitutki.spb.su/]Посетить или не посещать проституток в Санкт-Петербурге? Сидя перед монитором или просматривая на экране смартфона, листая анкеты шлюх СПб, большинство мужчин задают себе этот вопрос, и представление у каждого свое! Если Вы женатый человек или ищите подружку на вечер, на ночь или день, а может Вам нужен утренний секс или сопровождение милой, молодой куртизанки, то ответ на вопрос пойти или нет, а желание безгранично, конечно лучшего варианта как проститутки СПб просто не найти. А вот провести время с прекрасной и нежной проституткой Питера, лучший и единственно правильный способ для всех, и выгода здесь очевидна: Вы не тратите лишние средства на долгие ухаживания, на кино, кафе, рестораны, на съем гостиницы, отеля либо квартиры, дабы провести желаемую встречу ради секса с девушкой. Вас не застукает жена или подружка, Вы проведете это время инкогнито, шлюхам Питера все равно называете Вы свое имя или вымышленное, они не претендуют на семейную жизнь с Вами, для них все мужчины равны, как говориться – «В бане генералов нет», вот так и с проститутками. Путаны СПб дадут Вам то, зачем Вы пришли и даже больше, сделают это на высшем уровне, с полной отдачей и при этом обучив и показав Вам что-то новое неизведанное для Вас в сексе, любовных играх и ласках. Проститутки Питера, фото которых Вы можете видеть на сайте, нежны и прекрасны, взяв Вас в свои нежные объятия, передадут Вам кусочек нежности и ласки.[/url]
