Week 25 has been a good one! At our doctor’s appointment, my cervix was still stable and my doctor gave me a bunch of “exercises” that are approved for me to do while on bedrest! Woohoo! They are basically just minor stretches and stuff that I can do while lying down, like flexing and pointing my feet, dragging my heel up until it’s level with the knee of the other leg, etc… and I can do gentle arm exercises with a resistance band while sitting down! It feels so nice to be able to move my muscles a bit and “work out”!
This week was pretty uneventful. It's been really warm here so one day I put on a bikini and sat out on the deck and read! It was so nice! Still on bedrest and taking it easy!
