Hospital stay: Day 3

Well today April 28, 2011 is day three of my hospital stay.  My day was filled with tv and eating and web surfing and some reading.  Baby and I are doing good.  I found out today that my little pumpkin is weighing it at 2 lbs.
4 oz. 

This morning I was taken off of strict bed rest and allowed one shower and I got a bedside toilet woo hoo!!!! It’s not to bad here.  The nurses are really nice.  The one that was here today even made me a chocolate milk shake.  And it was sooooo good. 

Judah:  2lbs 4 oz
           kicking and moving like he’s having a party
           heart beat strong and regular
           no infection : D


Oh yea, and this is a picture of today’s dinner.

Tuesday April 26, 2011

Yesterday started off as normal, got dressed for work and left as usual.  Work was pretty normal, nothing out of the ordinary.  The morning came and went.  For lunch I had bread sticks and penne pasta mmmm.  Okay so this is what happened then.

I went to the restroom and came back to my desk and sat for a while.  A few minutes went by when all of a sudden I felt like I had just peed on my self (sorry for the tmi).  I stood up to head to the restroom when all of a sudden I felt a gush of fluid.  I panicked, went to the restroom and there was more fluid.  I called for my friend who also happens to be an LVN.  She called my doctor and my hubby and told them that I was on my way to the ER.  And a MAJOR thank you to Michelle.  She drove me to the emergency room and stood  with me until my mom showed up when she really did not have to.

I would be lying if I said that I was not completely terrified  and worried about little Judah.  I got to the hospital yesterday afternoon and they confirmed that indeed my water had broken.  I was in the ER for about 20 minutes until they brought me up to the labor and delivery unit.  Here we waited for my doctor to come in and talk to us about what was going on and in the meanwhile we got to see the hospitals maternal/fetal specialist.  He did a sonogram and said that I had lost almost all of my water but there was just enough left for my baby to be okay for a while.  So now we are just here waiting for as long as God would have us wait.  Hopefully for baby Judah I will be here for some weeks.

Today’s gripe: There is no TV guide.  Guess I have to make my own.
