Bed Rest Updates & Baby Names

I have almost made it, my time on bed rest MIGHT be coming to an end tomorrow!!! Originally, my doctors apt was for today... the doctor had some personal things come up, so my apt was pushed to tomorrow at 11. I think God is trying to teach me patience. Ha!

I am SO ready to get out of bed and off the dang couch. I have been spicing it up every other day by switching to the couch from the bed. 

Pros and Cons to Bed Rest:

Pro - I have been able to watch all 6 seasons of Lost on Netflix and Hulu. 
Con - I haven't been able to drive a car in the past week
Pro - I get to sleep in
Con - I cant sleep at night, stayed up til 3 am this morning
Pro - Casey does everything for me
Con - Casey does everything for me
Pro - No work
Con - No social interaction with adults (except for the people who have come to visit)

And the list could go on and on... seriously done with this all! 

How am I feeling? I am doing great, just bored out of my mind. As far as my hematoma, it was bleeding really good for a couple days. It was bleeding so much that I had to wear some uber sexy granny panties and pads there for a few nights... Casey had to buy me some granny panties and ended up size 9 (because I wear a size 10-12 jeans) not knowing that size 9 panties are really size 14-16 pant size... so they are a bit big on me, which makes them that much sexier!! Anyways, the bleeding has slowed down a LOT now and is even absent most of the times I go to the bathroom. I hope that means the hematoma is gone, we will find out tomorrow!!! 

During bed rest we have decided on a boy and a girl name that we both love! We know that everyone will have a comment on the names, just like they did when I chose the name Caleb before he was born... So please, if you don't like our names or think they are "bad" names, please just keep it to yourself. 

If we have a boy, we have decided to name him Lucas Cole Flowers. Casey came up with this name and we both love it... the middle name was going to be Casey, however we decided that nothing really sounded good with that so we went Cole. Lucas means light! 

If we have a girl, her name will be Isabelle Mae Flowers. I was the one who came up with this name after we threw MANY girls names around. Mae was my Gaga's middle name (my grandmother who passed away when I was 11 years old who I was very close to). Isabelle will be called Is, Izzy, or Belle. Isabelle means God is bountiful!
We are excitedly awaiting August 23rd to find out if we will welcome Lucas or Isabelle into our family!

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us this past week. who has brought us dinner, who has come to visit me... it means the world to us!! Thank you!

I am so ready to get back to normal life and get back into the gym!!!
