Working from home is dangerous!

So, we had an eventful weekend here in Houston.  Well, it wasn't eventful in a fun way - it was eventful in terms of thinking this baby may come early.

Alex and I headed to Babies R Us to pick up a few things Saturday evening.  The more we walked around, the worse I felt.  I started to have painful contractions that were starting in my lower abdomen and wrapping around to my back.  We came home and I rested and they went away.

Well, Sunday morning I woke up to the same pain.  It came and went from 7am until I was finally able to take a 1 hour nap around 11.  I woke up feeling so much better.  Around 5pm I was feeling so good that I got up and started doing things again only to start contracting within about 15 minutes of being on my feet.

So, I am now pretty much on modified bed rest.  I can go to work, sit at my desk, come home, and sit on my couch.

I went into this office this morning but started feel very off around lunch so I am working the rest of the day from home. 

Now, on to why working from home is dangerous...

I have full access to my refrigerator and pantry.  I have eaten so much - and baked some brownies.  And ate some brownies.

I'm hoping my half days in the office and half days at home don't result in a ridiculous amount of weight gain! 

But, anything to keep Kate cooking for 3 more weeks!  I'm anxious to have my appointment tomorrow and make sure everything is looking good - I'm praying that I am not making any progress on the labor front and that the contractions are just going to be aggravating until we deliver in August!
