Anyway, after waiting several days for the perinatologist's office to call me to schedule an appointment with them, as my OB has said they would, I finally called them to see what was going on, and they claimed to have none of my paperwork. So I called the OB to ask them about that, and decided I should go ahead and clarify the whole bed rest one week/until the ultrasound thing. And was informed that I am on bed rest until next Friday (ultrasound is Thursday), when I have my next regular OB appointment. Oh, and she said they did send the paperwork, so I need to call the perinatologist again in the morning to follow up. At least I have plenty of spare time for all these phone calls!
So, I broke down tonight and sent a mass email to my church friends asking them to come over next week with their kids, and entertain Ethan for a few hours at a time. Which was hard for me to do, I don't like to ask for help. But I know it's what I need to do for Ethan/Daniel's sake, to avoid more late night "discussions" like the one that was held last night between Daniel and I. :)
I cannot believe that I don't get to leave this condo again for another 8 days. I'm going to be so happy to go to my appointment next Thursday morning. Freedom! Believe me, we are SO taking the long way home from the doctor's office that day.
Anyway, so that's the scoop from me. Expect further crazed emails. Don't say I didn't warn you.
