I’m not Catholic but I would LOVE to give up this hospital stay for Lent.  I would be so good at it too if it weren’t for the whole requirement of starting the deal today.  Because I can’t.

All in all today is a pretty good day.  Baby was quick with his non stress test today thank goodness because I was SO tired–but for no reason.  I had one of my favorite night nurses and was able to sleep well last night.  It is interesting that how well I sleep at night completely depends on the nurse I have.  I was a bit sleepy at 11:30 last night and asked her to do my vitals 30 minutes early then went to bed.  Since I’m used to waking every 4 hours I got up at 3:30 for a potty Continue Reading Day 76: Lent…

Yes, I said 13 days to go and no, I didn’t miscount.  I got a call from the doctor’s office this morning informing me that they have scheduled my induction date.  The woman on the other end said, that she was just calling to inform me that they have scheduled my induction for the 21st and that I should arrive at the hospital the evening prior at 8:00 p.m. to begin the induction process.  I giggled and told her I’m already AT the hospital.  Without skipping a beat, she responded that she should have paid closer attention and that the doctors will fill me in on the formalities later today.  Just before I hung up the phone I realized that she said the 21st and not the 22nd.  Assuming she was looking at some sort of formal paper that I was not, I said…wait, you said the 21st, not the 22nd?!  She confirmed that I heard correctly and I hung up the phone.  If the nurse weren’t in here when I took the call I may have celebrated by jumping on my bed!  Okay, maybe I wouldn’t have jumped on my bed but you get the idea.  I was excited.  Continue Reading Day 75: 34 Weeks–13 Days to go!…

Day 74: We Have an Induction Date!!!

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 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.

Day 66: Who Was a Total Pill Yesterday?

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.
