I’m usually the girl who is full of rainbows and sunshine and unicorns (guess that reference) but this morning I am the total opposite of that, Oscar the Grouch, maybe.  I fell asleep a tad too early last night, 5 minutes before the nurse came in for my vitals.  I tried really hard to stay awake but it didn’t work.  After the nurse came for my vitals I was SO awake.  I ended up reading until 1:00 a.m. when Kayvan went to bed and then forced myself to go to sleep.  I’ve never had to do that before being in here.  I think I am typically so full of rainbows and sunshine and unicorns because I have always been one to fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.  I slept for an hour until my vitals were checked at 2 and 6.  I knew I had a blood draw so I kept myself awake for a bit since the lab peeps were supposed to be here at 6.  They didn’t get here until 7:30, just after I let Continue Reading Day 39: TOTAL Grump…


Day 38: Nursery News

Blog is a bit late today.  Sorry!  Kayvan got back to the hospital around the time I was ready to blog and I missed him and wanted to catch up.  Yes, he was a whole 30 minutes away for an entire night and I missed him.  That is typical us I guess, probably amplified by the situation we are in.  I was talking to Kayvan this morning and asked if he slept well in our bed.  He told me no.  Granted, the guys were up late last night but Kayvan said that he couldn’t sleep last night because he kept thinking and worrying about me.  As if that weren’t enough, he couldn’t stop thinking about the fact that the last time we were in that bed, my water broke and this whole experience began.  I told him it was funny because I was up until 2 a.m. reading until I was exhausted since I’m not used to him not being Continue Reading Day 38: Nursery News…

Day 37: Hospital Food Service

So I mentioned in a previous blog that I had a food service rant to get to.  I can’t think of anything better to write about today so, here she goes.

Plainly put, hospital food sucks.  Our amazing family and friends have provided me and Kayvan with tons of food so that we don’t have to entirely live off of the gunk they serve here.  They also do this so that I will continue to gain weight, which is impossible to do on hospital food without drinking at least one ensure a day.  I mean, c’mon, I’m trying to grow a chunky baby here and I’m losing at Continue Reading Day 37: Hospital Food Service…

Day 36: Not the Best Night So Far

Yesterday was a very quiet day.  I finished the second book in Charlaine Harris’ Shakespeare series.  I like the books so far but it pales in comparison to the Sookie Bookies as I call them.  I think I’m going to have to start calling them by their actual name, “The Sookie Stackhouse Series” because now Snooki of the Jersey Shore has written a book.  Yes, I guess she can write and I’ve heard it referred to as the Snooki Book.  Though, that’s not the the actual title.  I think it is called something like “A Shore Thing.”  Whatever.  It’s bad enough people hear Continue Reading Day 36: Not the Best Night So Far…

Day 35: Snow Gridlock? Huh?!

I have gotten pretty good at finding little things to be thankful for while being in here.  One of those things occurred last night.  This so called snow gridlock that the DC area experienced.  Tons and tons of people had 6+ hour commutes home for a drive that would take 20 – 45 minutes.  My friend Heather works in the same building I do and lives 5 minutes from my house.  She left work at 7:15 and it took her 3.5 hours to get home.  I couldn’t imagine doing that snowy commute pregnant after a full day of work. I imagine I would be on the phone with Kayvan in tears after the first two hours.  Facebook told me that tons of co-workers tried to get out only to return to the office again and “work,” some over a glass of wine or two they found stashed at the office.  Others crashed at the homes of co-workers who lived nearby or found a hotel.  One poor soul left the office at 2:30ish, came to visit me around 3 and got kicked out by me when it started snowing.  She left here I’m guessing around 3:45 and didn’t get home until 11:30 Continue Reading Day 35: Snow Gridlock? Huh?!…

Day 34: Busy Day

Holy lots of stuff to do batman!  So last night I had to fast after midnight.  Normally not too hard for me to do.  I had an apple at 10 and a banana at 11 but for some reason once the clock struck midnight I HAD to have food.  Too late, it was just me and my buddy water until morning.  The nurse woke me at 6 a.m. to drink the sugary sweet orange stuff for the Gestational Diabetes test.  People say it reminds them of flat orange soda and that it is just plain awful tasting.  The flat orange soda might actually taste good.  This tasted like flat orange soda with 25 packets of sugar added.  If I hadn’t heard the flat orange soda description so many times I would describe it more as those pop ice things from my childhood, but unfrozen–admit it, you drank them before they were frozen too.  I prefer my orange soda cut with sprite so this was definitely too sweet for this gummy bear Continue Reading Day 34: Busy Day…

Day 33: 28 Weeks!

In the words of one of my besties (you know who you are) ZOMG 28 WEEKS!!!!  It is finally here.  Baby is in a MUCH better place than he was when we first got here.  We have been told many times that one day in utero is 3 days in the NICU.  With that math we have officially saved ourselves 99 days in the NICU.  Wow, I hadn’t done that math.  99 days.  I get some perks for making it this far too.  A better chance of the lower transverse c-section instead of the more dangerous for me but safer for baby classical c-section.  I also get the wheelchair rides I told you about yesterday, annnnd tomorrow I get to drink the sugary sweet orange drink Continue Reading Day 33: 28 Weeks!…

Day 32: I Still Don’t Like Mondays

Before I ended up in the hospital I would sit up Sunday night and grumble that the following day was “ugh, Mondayyyy.”  Most people don’t like Monday.  It means their fantastic weekend is over and they have to return to their regularly scheduled program for the next five days.  Some people don’t like their jobs thus amplifying the Monday effect.  Traffic and crappy drivers with road rage don’t help the cause any either.  Last night I found myself sitting in bed dreading the fact that Monday was indeed coming.  Mind you, most days I don’t know what day of the week it is.  I just can’t keep track.  They’re all the same.  So why on earth was I dreading the ever-looming Monday?  I don’t know.  Maybe it is because I had so many visitors this weekend and I’m going to miss having everyone Continue Reading Day 32: I Still Don’t Like Mondays…

I cannot believe I’ve been sitting in the same place for an entire stinkin month.  Totally not my style, but hey, this isn’t my choice.  I’m so thankful we have been able to make it this long.  In 2 days we will hit my 28 week milestone, a huge one that I’m so looking forward to.  What have I missed this month (in no particular order)?

Day 30: How Could I Forget?

…well technically I can think of one reason…

With all of this insanity going on the past month, it took a bit for my birthday present from Kayvan to get ordered and come in…and for Kayvan to go into the office and bring it home with him.  After all of that waiting I forgot to share what he got me!  So what did my dearest husband get for me?!  The 50 mm camera lens I’ve wanted for like a year!  Yippeee!  He also got a new camera bag for me since the one I got with the camera was tearing at the strap…and he got me 16 GB of extra memory.  I LOVE it.  All of it.  I spent the night before last playing with all of the new stuff, re-organizing my new camera bag, playing with the new lens and flash I got for Christmas and even teaching Kayvan about bounce flash.  That way, when he takes pictures of my pasty face he knows not to point the flash right at me and make me look even more Pasty McPasteface than I am. He is still shooting on auto but I’m convinced I’ll have him shooting in manual one Continue Reading Day 30: How Could I Forget?…
