Drink Up


This is my view, from my spot on the couch.  Within reach, I have my computer, my water, chapstick, controllers, phones, bible, and yarn (well that's not within sight but it's just to the side of the couch).  All in sight of our lovely Christmas tree.  Seriously, if one must be on bedrest, at least the view and stash of supplies is nice.  

I find a have to drink a lot of water.  My doctor said REALLY, REST, and Drink a lot of water.  And now that I've been home a few days, and researching Irritable Uteruses, turns out water, however oddly, Helps.  So I was being silly the other day and invented a Drinking Game.  (see I sit her so long, I get a little punchy)

Imagine, in my most Game Show Host voice:

Here they are, for you today, the Irritable Uterus Drinking Game -
Drink a glass of water if you have a contraction that Really Hurts!
Drink a glass of water if you have to lay down!
Drink a glass of water if you have to get up and go to the bathroom!
Drink a glass of water if you have anything to drink that is not water!

Let me know if you think of any other rules I forgot.  It seriously takes a lot of water, one gal online said she was drinking a gallon and a half a day.  I'm not there yet, but it takes a lot, and that's ok, because it helps.  I just fill up my blue cup, (or have the boys do so) all the time.
