The end of this marathon…no…ironman race of a hospital stay is near! We have an official induction date! The fellow came in today and said that they scheduled my induction for 3/22. That is 15 days away!!! Yippeeee! We were hoping for 3/21 since that is typically the date the Persian new year falls upon each year (it is 3/20 this year) but it really doesn’t matter. I am VERY happy we are now talking induction rather than c-section. I had a million and a half questions for the doctors but the fellow didn’t seem to have answers for me. I asked if cervidil is safe to use since I’m ruptured or if we would start with pitocin. The fellow said that my doctors are better to discuss that with me but cytotec is safe to use on ruptured patients. I just did a VERY preliminary google search on cytotec, skimmed the results and do not like what I see about that drug.

Day 73: Daddy’s Girl

This kid is our first child and it is a boy.  But our first baby is our little French Bulldog and she is a total daddy’s girl.  Kayvan brought her up with him again today when he came to visit after dragging her lazy little butt out of bed.  He texted me first thing this morning with “It is kind of hard to sleep in with Sookie snoring in your face.”  I laughed.  Then he texted me a few minutes later with her snuggled up in bed refusing to move.   This is new, she used to snort in my face to wake me up at the crack of dawn…which meant she started sleeping in her crate.

Day 71: Mixology

After quite some time of boycotting food service thanks to food from family, I am actually ordering food from the food folks here this week.  They have a new menu and just as I thought their service was mildly worth complimenting over the past two days, they messed up again yesterday.  No big deal, I’m used to it.  I am writing to share some exciting food related news.  Information I have discovered WAY too late.  This morning I wanted nothing more than a bacon egg and cheese sandwich.  That isn’t on the menu here so I ordered a cheese omelet, bacon, two pieces of toast, salt, pepper and some mayonnaise (yes, you have to specify the condiments you want).  And when they got here, I slapped them all together and it was DELICIOUS.  No, I can’t cook in here but I can assemble!  Then for lunch I was thinking of getting some milk and ice cream to stir together a chocolate milk shake.  I didn’t.  Instead I got orange sherbet and some sprite and made Continue Reading Day 71: Mixology…

Day 70: 10 Weeks

As I have now been here for 10 weeks, the fact that I have not had a full night of sleep for that length of time is really starting to affect my sunny personality.  If you think the standard new mom who returns to work is grumpy, you may not want to meet me 9 – 11 weeks from now when I make my return.  Sorry, co-workers, I promise to really try to be nice and awake, and happy.  If for some reason I show up at work and and am not as chipper as you think I should be, remember this, “Iced, Grande, Soy, White Mocha.”  Continue Reading Day 70: 10 Weeks…

Day 69: Chugging Along

Knowing that the boy is doing really well cooking on the inside, I no longer feel guilty counting down the days.  We don’t have an official induction date yet and am told we will get that next weeks sometime.  BUT.  I can count down to 36 weeks.  So that means we have 2 weeks 6 days  to go!  Yesterday the Nurse Manager checked in with us and Kayvan asked about the record for the longest stay.  I am very happy to announce that I will NOT be beating the record of 110 days.  110 days.  Poor woman.  If I go to 36 weeks exactly it will be a little over 90 days in the hospital and that is including recovery from the delivery.

Day 68: 33 Weeks!

We have officially made it to 33 weeks!  Just one week left until they schedule me for induction and 3 weeks left until I am 36 weeks.  We are just trucking along now!  I have never been one to wish away time but things change and I want the next three weeks to FLY by.  After that, time can slow down again.

Kayvan and I spent some time yesterday laughing at the baby sticking his booty out to the right of his belly button.  This boy was STRETCHING and my belly was SO lopsided.  I said to Kayvan, “There he goes, showing his ass again.”  To which Kayvan responded, “Looks like he got your butt!”  Continue Reading Day 68: 33 Weeks!…

Day 67: Sherpa Sookie

I shared a midday picture of Sookie on her way to see me yesterday!  Well, she made it and with her, she brought momma some chicken nuggets and french fries from McDonalds.  The amount of McDonalds I have eaten during this pregnancy is obscene.  Especially since in the 8 years prior to being pregnant I maybe had McDonalds 4 times.  I can’t help it, their french fries and BBQ sauce are the best combination EVER.  It has been a favorite of mine since childhood.  Being pregnant, it is impossible to abstain.

Sookie arrived via Sherpa (bag), hopped out and sniffed around the room.  We ended up having to sneak her in because the pet people never called us back to give us a “golden ticket” which is just a little permission slip to give security.  Sookie seriously loves her Sherpa.  Leave it to a lazy doggie.  It really didn’t involve much sneaking since once Kayvan hits our floor the nurses all want to say hi to our girl.

Me, me, meeee!!!

My poor husband deserves an award.  Most days, I have to admit, I am a remarkably awesome person to spend all of your time with.  Yesterday was NOT one of those days.  I wasn’t grumpy or mean, I was just a total whiny pain.  I cannot tell you how many times “I’m BORRRRRRRRED” came out of my mouth.  He knew to do nothing about my complaint.  I have plenty to do and have always been a self starter.  He knows that if I really and truly wanted to do something about my boredom I could have picked up a book (I have about 20 that I still need to make my way through), I could crochet, watch a DVD, play on the internet, call or text with friends, the list goes on…I have plenty to DO.  Problem is, yesterday just was not a patient day for me and I was SO not up for the repetition.  It didn’t help that we lost about 10 channels on TV here, one being TLC.  I don’t know how that happens but it has happened once before during my 9 week stay.  So I re-discovered an old addiction.  Bejeweled on my phone.

Day 65: I Want New Clothes

Not that I can wear them or anything, but I want new clothes.  New, non-maternity clothes…that aren’t nightgowns…and that are in my pre-pregnancy size.  I miss my clothes in general.  I miss my maternity clothes which I was only able to wear once or twice.  I’m sure I’ll be wearing the maternity jeans for a few weeks postpartum.  I may even get to wear a sweater or two before I shove them in storage boxes, depending on the weather when I get out of here.  The other day The Limited, one of my favorite stores had 40% off of all of their clothes in store and online.  I will have a new job when I go back to work and I think that warrants a few new clothes.  If that doesn’t, sitting in here for weeks on end most certainly does.  Trouble is, I don’t have any idea what size I will be once Continue Reading Day 65: I Want New Clothes…

Day 64: Who the Hell is Dr. Red?

Before I start, don’t forget that today is THE LAST DAY to enter your vote to win a free custom made hat!

 

We have learned many things during our stay in the hospital.  How to live with each other in one room for months.  Which, surprisingly has been easy for us.  How to get a decent night of sleep with interruptions every 4 hours, and how to get around eating hospital food (thank god for awesome cooks in the family).  In my old room we could hear  when emergencies were coming into the ER.  They announce “Code [blue/yellow] ETA [xx minutes] by [ground/air].  On New Year’s Eve we estimated lots of codes over the loudspeaker but we were surprisingly wrong.  We figured out that code blue is in really bad shape and lots of them come via air (I’m sure my friend who works in the ER here would describe it differently), and code yellow isn’t doing so hot either but isn’t as bad as code blue.  Sometimes code yellow’s are upgraded to code blue and that is no good.  One thing we could NOT figure out was this whole Dr. Red thing.  And those announcements are always very very loud.  Sometimes at 4 a.m., waking us up.
