Motherhood = going crazy one day at a time!

Friday, May 1, 2009


So I've been in hospital since Wednesday afternoon.  I went to the doctor's that morning and like so many other times he didn't like my PIH symptoms.  He thought it best to get to the hospital to get some steroids on board for the girls and to do a 24 hour urine collection and to be generally monitored.  It's not a fun vacation  like I thought it would be.  You really are trapped in a bed, in a small room with only privileges to get up and pee.  Other than that you are stuck in bed with monitors on and people coming and going taking various medications, vitals, fluids...

Well I thought that I may deliver the girls today, but instead today I think that he is going to send me home, empty handed.  I've been trying to find a way that will convince him to deliver me.  I haven't succeeded.  In fact this morning my BP was actually too low.  I'm telling you I'm all over the board.  I am happy that the girls got the medication needed to develop their lungs, but I wish that he The contractions all day, every day aren't fun, I HATE BED REST, and I'm just overall uncomfortable.  My sisters blog had a post this week about not being a negative and wining.  Well folks, that was her blog, not mine.  If you don't like what you are reading, stop reading.  I'm just saying... maybe I shouldn't be writing a post when I'm in the middle of it.  It always seems to be worse when you are in the middle of something.  A little time on my side and it won't seem so bad.  After all I get to go home today to my mom who has no doubt been cooking, cleaning, looking after my child and husband and will be of utmost help.  Thanks mom, your the best!

Bed rest?!

So who ever thought that bed rest was a good idea? I mean really, unless you are in the hospital being watched like a hawk, who has enough self control to do this 100%. Okay, I know a few women who did, but I don't seem to be one of them. It's the middle of the night and I am sitting at the computer, not sleeping, while on bed rest. Hat's off the the ladies who actually accomplish this task. My cousin, Angie, for one who spent 10 weeks+ in hospital with her twin boys. I'm just not one of them. For the most part I have stayed either on the couch or in bed, but I am loosing my mind and it's only been 6 days! Come on people, there is no way I am going to make it much longer. Good thing this is all coming to a close. I think the reason for no sleep tonight was on and off contractions. I was trying to ignore them so I could sleep, but they have won. Not to worry folks, I go to the doctor at 10am for my bi-weekly appointment. I'm sure he will make sure everything is fine, and I hope that he is going to find that we are well on our way to having these girls! Mom is on her way here tonight, Myles has been farmed out to my dear friends this week and I am READY TO GET ON WITH IT! I know the girls could use some more baking time, but the oven isn't having it. I'm done. I can't say it any other way, I'm just DONE!
