Day 10: Itchy All Over!

Ugh!!!  I woke up with a rash this morning.  It started out pretty mild on my belly yesterday.  The nurse asked if I wanted some Benadryl and I told her no, let’s just watch it.  Wellllll I woke up at 5:30 this morning because I was ITCHY and could not get back to sleep. It seems to be a pretty selective rash and is only on my trunk (that means chest, belly and back for those of you who have your mind in the gutter like Kayvan), not on any of my limbs.  Still, No fun.  I can handle this bedrest stuff.  I’ve found a way to wrap my  head around the idea that I’m probably going to have a teeny weenie preemie but I cannot handle this itch.  So this my friends is where I get whiney.  With my new rash comes a few blood tests.  One this morning, which tests my liver enzymes and another tomorrow morning which I have to fast for that tests something with my gall bladder.  Not to worry, I can eat dinner tonight and they will take my blood when I wake up.  I can take hydra-cortisone cream or Benadryl in the meantime to treat the itch.

Our non-stress test went very well this morning.  Pretty much the same as yesterday and I like this new trend.  My IV also came out today so I have two hands again!  Yippeeee!  That last one was in a really annoying spot.  Ick.  I shouldn’t need another IV unless I end up needing some other sort of medication.  Maybe I will finish that hat today just to be safe.

Last night Millie stopped by for a bit and brought some of her momma’s fine Filipino food.  Adobo Chicken, yummmmm!  Thank you momma Emma!  Kayvan’s mom, the amazing cook she is had never tried Adobo before and loved it too.  I’ll have to get the recipe for her to add to the repertoire.  My Dad also stopped in for a bit with Tortilla chips, cheese salsa and some homemade apple cinnamon bread.  What can I say?  He knows me well.  Kayvan’s Aunt and Uncle came by yesterday too.  It was quite the busy day!

  1. Boo to the rash!!! That sucks. 😦 Well, I hope you can eat some more leftover Adobo today!

  2. I totally considered Adobo for breakfast. That and the cupcakes which are still staring me in the face. 🙂

  3. Hello Romaezis,
    What a story of love and support. And, food! Food heals so many things!
    It sounds like you are in the BEST care ever! I will be wishing for you, many, many more days of the little one remaining safe inside.
    If there is anything I can do, please let me know. You have my support and good thoughts.
    Back to work for me, tomorrow, so check in as little or as much as you’d like. No worries, you just rest and eat. 🙂

    • Hi Maureen! Thanks for checking in on us. I so wish I was back to work with you today.

      Your support is oh so appreciated. We will keep this little guy in as long as possible but know I’m eager to join you up on that penthouse floor as soon as I can.

  4. New job? Congrats!! within Gannett, or with a new company?

    We missed you and K at Deep Creek this year!

    btw, although not ideal, C-sections are not so bad. Just the “thought” of it might be the hardest part. Sure, the first couple days afterwards are kinda gnarly, but then….not so bad.

    I’d like to come visit on Wed, Thur, or Fri. Let me know which day is best, what time is good, and what you’d like to eat. I can bring you another meal from La Sandia, if you’d like, or something different! You pick. 🙂

    • Hi Michelle,

      Yup, new job! Same company different tower and I’m quite excited about it.

      I guess it all works out for the better that we planned not to be there this year, huh? Next year though. Next year we will have a child who does not sleep through the night and wakes everyone else up. Revenge! 🙂

      I’m okay with a lower transverse c-section but would prefer not to have a classical. (vertical incision on the uterus) I’ll mention that a bit in today’s blog.

      LOL all of the days are the same to me. It would be great to see you on whichever day is most convenient. I’m good with ALL food from the outside. Beggars can’t be choosers.

      • uh…yeah, we had THAT child this year! Ryan does not enjoy sleeping in the Pack n Play so much and let everyone hear about it between the hours of 1am and 6am.

        Oh geez, I did not even realize what “classical” C-section meant. Sorry for my ignorance. 😦

        Ok, then I’m leaning towards Thursday and seriously, I encourage you to let me know exactly what you want (one of the small perks of being pregnant AND on hospitalized bed rest!!), but if I don’t hear anything then I’m just going to have to go with La Sandia.

        I’ll be in touch. 🙂

  5. An april wte mommy here. Congrats on keeping that baby in! You’re doing great and we’re all rooting for you! I love reading your blog every day and that you’re keep up such a great spirit and attitude. Glad you have such great family and friends supporting you! Grow, baby, grow!

    🙂 Shannon (shannonandjon4268)

  6. Sorry about the rash 😦 and I am SUPER sorry I am still the walking bird flu and cant come see you. I am like #1 bad friend of the year here. I always get sick at the worst times! I have a call in to the doc for stronger Meds. I know Millie and Heather are totally handling the friend department here.. but I miss you and will be there as soon as I know the hosptial wont commit me for walking in! love ya!

    • Ew! #1 bad friend of the year? Who gives that award out? I’ll see you when you are better. No rush, we will be here. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others. Besides, you get me sick, I’ll be stuck on bed rest with a rash and a cold and will have to hurt you when I get out of here.

  7. Cupcakes for breakfast?!

    Breakfast of champions!!!!! ^_^

    • And lunch and dinners. The nurses have all returned to work in diet mode. So they are refusing the cupcakes. MORE FOR ME!!
