Day 58: Time for a Housekeeping Rant

It seems the last two nights or so of going to bed at 1 a.m. caught up with me  and by 9 p.m. I needed toothpicks to keep my eyes open.  I was working on a flower for a hat and just could not concentrate.  Rather than fight it, I put the flower down and went to sleep.  I was up by 7:30 this morning and took extra care to be really, really quiet so Kayvan could sleep in his little cocoon next to me (he sleeps with the blanket over his head in here).  The nurse came in and whispered “Do you need anything?” to me out of courtesy to him.  I whispered on the phone when I ordered my breakfast and even left the lights off as long as I could–which wasn’t long.

Who wasn’t quiet or respectful this morning?  Housekeeping.  Seriously lady, what theee eff.  You are early.  Normally, housekeeping doesn’t come until lunch time.  When you knock and I say “come in,” rather loud I might add.  Don’t knock again and open the door before I respond to you a second time.  Then, when I whisper to you “Could you please fill the soap in the bathroom?” take a freaking hint.  As if the man sleeping next to me with a blanket over his head isn’t clue enough.  Also, after I ask you if you wouldn’t mind closing the door behind you as “Code Dr. Red” blares over the PA system in the background, do not fill the napkin dispenser in my room and SLAM it 4 times in an attempt to close it.  Even I saw that you had the thing too full.  So your real problem was not that it needed to slam closed.  You could also be nice like all of the other housekeeping people too.  There, I’ve said my piece.

Awesome hubby headed home to finish the paint job on the baby room and he did an AMAZING job.  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  We’re way closer to ready for baby than we were 8 weeks ago.  Sure, there is still a lot to be done like baby laundry, assembling all of the baby stuff, steam cleaning the carpets in the baby room, etc.  But really, we are well on our way and some of the stuff that still needs to be done can wait if it absolutely has to.  Though, I’m sure it is NO FUN to assemble a baby swing.  The directions are hard enough to follow on a full night of sleep.  I don’t want to imagine figuring it all out in a sleep deprived stupor.  Check out the room!  We still need the monkey decals for the walls, but that will come later.  The rocker recliner hasn’t made it into the room yet but that will come once the carpets are steam cleaned and dry.  The little shelf that is currently next to the crib will go next to the rocker recliner.

I have a couple more hats done now too.  These two are actually custom requests.

The non stress test went well today…until literally 2 minutes before I was going to come of.  I had a stinkin contraction and they made me start all over, which means sitting on the monitor for 20 minutes.  Baby reacted well to the contraction which is good.  His heart rate dipped a little but it was at 120 which actually isn’t too bad.  I may complain about it, but I really don’t mind the non stress test.  I actually look forward to them because I get to hear my boy and it gives me peace of mind that he is doing OK in there.


Day 24: Scale of 1-10

Last night I went to bed with a headache.  It was mild enough that I was able to fall asleep without any Tylenol but when I woke for the 2 a.m. vital check my head was THROBBING.  I asked the nurse for Tylenol, which she brought.  When she handed me the pills she asked, “How bad does it hurt on a scale of one to ten?”  I said four but I really don’t think that was a good answer.  This morning that number popped into my head and I decided I don’t like rating pain on a scale of 1-10.  At the hospital closer to my house they have a pain chart on the wall with little faces that illustrate how you might feel per each number.  I like that chart.  It seems that I need that chart here.

Let’s hop back to the first few days here when I was in Labor and Delivery.  When I was admitted I was asked on a scale of 1-10 what number would I rank the most pain I have ever felt.  It was a hectic time with four people asking me different Continue Reading Day 24: Scale of 1-10…

The standard routine went well this morning. No fever, low blood pressure but the doctors are okay with that, good fetal heart rate and only one contraction during the non-stress test.

Momma in law brought Peruvian chicken for dinner and I think that may have been the very best meal I’ve had in a really really long time. Sister-in-law and her fam stopped by for a bit yesterday and brought along girlie smelly things for me now that I can shower. They also brought along some ADORABLE cupcake ornaments for the tree. Way cute, can’t wait to put them on the tree next year too. Kayvan and I decided that this tree is going to go in kiddo’s room every Christmas. It’s only fitting since that’s how we started out.

Okay, so I’m not Oprah but I thought it would be light hearted and fun to share my favorite things from the past week with all of you.
