#ThrowbackThursday #Bedrest #Antepartum


postpartumTwo years ago this fall, rather than preparing for the arrival of my twins by folding tiny baby clothes, painting nursery walls and spending every last chance I could with Orange during her last moments as an only child, I sat in a hospital bed praying that every twinge wasn’t another contraction and that my babies would stay in much, much longer.

It barely took a few hours for me to become stir crazy. Less than a week into my jail time sentence hospital stay, I had to start getting creative and one early Sunday morning I typed up this gem and shared it as a note on my Facebook page. My friends all got a good giggle out of it so I thought I’d pull this one out of the archives to share with you today.

Enjoy 🙂
