You aren't incompetent. You are making a human being and for now that is your job. And your only job. It is a job no one else but you can accomplish. Only you can give your hubby a healthy daughter, or your son a healthy sister. Only you can give your baby the healthiest start possible by keeping her in as long as you can. You are doing a great job and right now its the only job that matters. Millie will sure be grateful when all the things you CAN'T do right now pay off down the road when they translate to all the things she WON'T have to go through in the NICU. Each day she stays inside you- each day that you have to lay there is approx. 2 days she doesn't have to lay in the NICU getting poked, prodded, intubated ect.
I know bedrest sucks big time. All that stuff that everyone does to prepare for baby weighs heavily on your mind and conscious and it feels horrible to have others have to do it for you. But you are making a huge investment in your baby's health. She is counting on you. You're doing fabulous Mama! You deserve lots of credit.
So happy to hear she is measuring right on track!!! Try to keep your spirits up! You can do it!

Thank you Kiliki for my awesome siggy!
