Quite the week

I know it's been a really long time since I last posted so I thought now would be a good time to update. Up till now everything has been going pretty good. I've been feeling good and the babies are doing great.
I am now seeing my OB every 2 weeks and having ultrasounds once a month. I love having ultrasounds. I love seeing my babies moving and healthy. They are looking really good. My last ultrasound the boy was 1lb 4oz, and the girl was 1lb 1oz. Their heartbeats are strong and they are moving like crazy.
Now to the last few days. My last ultrasound also showed my cervix is shortening. This just puts me at higher risk for premature labor. Because of this, they have decided to put me on bed rest. Luckily though, they said I can still get up to go to the kitchen to make myself food, shower, and use the restroom, other then that I am to keep my feet up. I am not allowed to do anything physical, no household chores, no lifting, no grocery shopping..etc. I know this will get old and having to depend on Erik and others to help definitely is hard but at least it's not strict, flat on my back. I am thankful for that. I am almost 25 weeks along and they want me to be on bed rest till 32 weeks. After 32 weeks they don't really care if I go into labor, although I am still hoping to go to 36 weeks.
Then I got a call this morning. I do have gestational diabetes. I will have an appointment made with the diabetes education center. I was really stressed out because all of this has been in the last few days. I know if I just control my eating everything will be fine but I still feel stressed.
Please pray that everything goes well and that I will be relaxed. God is good and I know I am blessed that I really have had a good pregnancy so far. I really am thankful.
