Bed Rest Fun

So, as most of you already know, I am on bed rest until the end of my pregnancy! (Or at least until 37 weeks) My sweet mom came to visit me the day after I got out of the hospital and stayed for a week! We were able to discuss a bunch of important stuff and also begin to get things ready for the baby. Speaking of the baby, we have decided on a name! It is going to be Levi William Lozano. We have loved that name ever since we were dating and swore we would use it for our first son!
My mom rented a wheel chair so that she could get me out of the house safely for the next month. I would go crazy inside these small walls of our apartment! The doctor was very encouraging and said that I could get out a couple times a week, but not to walk or move around. AKA: Wheel chair bound or getting dropped off at the curb. Brandon has been a HUGE help as well. He and my mom have been doing all of the cleaning, laundry, cooking, and grocery shopping. Let's just say, being the control freak I am, this is God's way of teaching me a lot of patience and how to give up a lot of my control.
I cannot believe we have made it another week without having this baby boy. It is so exciting to know that God is growing him stronger and healthier every day. He weighs almost 3 pounds and is about 17 inches long now! I am going to the doctor every week and I am able to get updates on how the baby is doing. I am looking forward to having my dad and sister here this week to help arrange furniture in the nursery and also get things ready! Here are some new pics of the baby bump:
