Fricking Baby Gate!!!

When we got Sookie, we bought this cheap, ugly, worthless piece of a baby gate. You get what you pay for. It was like $15 on amazon. Neither Kayvan nor I could figure out how to work the tension part and make it work appropriately. So we opted to use the lean function. I tripped over this stupid thing when I was first pregnant and at that time Sookie was good enough with the whole asking to potty thing so the gate was banished to the garage.

Fast forward to a month ago. Our cat got a UTI and started peeing everywhere but his litter box and our kid started getting more mobile. Bad combo and kitty had to be kept segregated for a bit. Welcome back stupid fricking baby gate. Only this time, Kayvan insisted on leaning it at the bottom of the stairs.

Every morning, I would walk down the stairs to find that stinking gate sitting there mocking me. I had to pick it up and move it before I could go anywhere. Sookie also wouldn’t go down the steps with it there.

Finally I complained enough for Kayvan to tell me to order new gates for the house. Not that I needed his permission as much as I needed him to say he would install them. So, order new gates I did…on a Friday, and received them the very next day…a Saturday. Thank you for $4 overnight delivery, Amazon!

The new gates are black and shiney and mount to the walls. They are too tall for me to climb over. But then, why would I? They have a hinge.

Oh, and Sookie doesn’t exactly love being contained. This is her…cussing me out.

 

Day 80: BUSTED!!

Oh man, I’m so busted.  This morning I woke up feeling some kind of awful.  I was so congested.  My throat was all mucusy, my nose was absolutely stuffy, my throat was sore and I had no voice.  I couldn’t wait to jump my morning hurdles and take the hottest shower possible.  When I got in the shower, I knew I hadn’t seen the doctor yet.  As a matter of fact, I heard him knock on my door and come into my room as I was getting into the shower.  Thankfully he wasn’t a nursing student.  Well, the doctor just came by again and the first thing he said was, “That was not a 10 minute shower!  I came by 3 times.”  I laughed and told him I heard him knock as I was getting into the shower and added that I was feeling pretty congested and needed the steam.  I promised him that not all of my showers are that long.  They aren’t.  But I know I break the 10 minute rule all of the time!  What are they going to do?  Come in and drag me out?  I would rather that to a 10 minute water shut off timer (which we don’t have here).  Talk about one pissed pregnant lady!

Day 79: Who are you and what have you done with my husband?

This is Kayvan’s last full weekend to get things done before the baby gets here.  It is also his last weekend at home before coming back to the hospital to stay with me full time.  That means he is out and about running errands before he and the pup come visit today.  I got a text from him at 11:15 that said, “I find going to the baby store new and exciting.”  You bet I read that one twice.

Day 76: Lent

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…

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 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.

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.
