I am a total planner.  I get started on things WAY too early sometimes–finish them early too.  Typically because I’m excited, also because once I start a project I don’t like to take breaks.  I will get into moods and just organize around the house, sit in one room until 2 a.m. and I can’t keep my eyes open anymore.  Kayvan did a decent job of breaking that habit, pregnancy exhaustion helped too. This whole hospital stay has thrown a thousand wrenches in my “plan.”  Heck, maybe the whole point is to show me that you can’t plan everything in life.  Well, lesson learned.  I’m not complaining, but find myself sitting here trying to figure out how to adapt.

I think I mentioned that we have purchased two things for this little guy–TWO.  A crib with no mattress and a Paul Frank onsie.  THAT is it.  We have started turning our old office into the nursery and Continue Reading Day 15: Figuring Out Plan B…

Looks like we are plugging right along. I talked to one of the residents this morning who congratulated us on making it two weeks.  She says that most people in our shoes don’t make it much past one up here.  That was really encouraging to hear, so YAY for two weeks!!!  Guess I am keeping with my overachieving ways after all.  I also asked her if I can take a wheelchair ride to the NICU when Kayvan goes for a tour this week and if I can participate in the weekly social hours here–which are basically classes.  I can’t yet.  Boo.  I have to make it to 28 weeks first.  Another reason my next milestone can’t get here fast enough!

I think the prednisone is keeping me up at night because falling asleep was such a chore last night.  I finished my book, stared at the walls wide-eyed for a bit and then turned the lights off and could not fall Continue Reading Day 14: We Made it Two Weeks in the Hospital!…

Nurses rock.  They really do.  These people are here to help you in some of your worst moments and in my experience are always kind as they do.  Now, I’m pretty nice to my nurses–or so I think.  But some of the nurses have mentioned that not everyone so pleasant to them and that really throws me for a loop.  I mean, these ladies are here to take care of you and your unborn child.  They check in on you every few hours and if no vitals or medication is scheduled they pop in to see if you want water, or juice, or a Popsicle.  Oh and you can’t get out of bed because you are on BED REST!  My husband is here with me and I know that isn’t the case with every woman on this floor so why on earth would you be even slightly mean to the only person who is taking care of you?!  The nurses are the ones who chase your ever so busy doctor around when you have a rash, for example, and make sure thye fix the problem or find someone who will.  Just so you feel better.  They bring you your meds on time, and Continue Reading Day 13: Nurses Rock…
