4/29/13 - 9th bleed but minor

Last night at 4:30am, I awoke to a gush of blood. I thought I was dreaming but not the case after turning on light. It quickly stopped but basically been up since then.

At 5:20am, the nurse bought in my glucola drink so they can test my sugars. An hr later was bloodwork and residents making their rounds. Everything takes place in the mornings here. I don't mind it tho one bit. I kinds like all the action!

4/27/13 - 29 wks!!

Today I reached 29 wks! I feel so confident now that if I had to deliver everything would be fine from here on out.

My Dr awoke me at 1am this morning to tell me about the Tdap vaccine. I swear he's lucky I'm a light sleeper. As soon as I hear the door creaked I'm wide awake and can have a full conversation.

This afternoon dragged like normal weekend days but the kids visit tonight made up for the lonely day. Its now 10:30pm, I'm on the monitor and still have to get my Tdap vaccine and a new IV port in. They have to change the site every 4 days. I'm really not looking forward to it.

4/26/13 - Quiet Week

I can't believe its already friday!  This week went by fast and all has been quiet since monday.  I've just been reading magazines, watching tv, on computer, putting pictures into photo albums and sitting by the window.  I have a nice view of Buccleuh park where the trees I can see are blooming with pink and white flowers.  It looks so pretty out there. I know I will be home soon in just a few short weeks.  Being here is only a temporary situation in our lives and things will be back to normal sooner than we know. 

Sometimes I question why I ended up here after praying so hard to try and remain out of the hospital but this is all a part of God's plan.  I find comfort in some of my favorite bible verses:

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;

Psalm 139: 13-16 For you formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mothers womb. I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my sould knows very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.  

Psalm 127:3  Behold, Children are a heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.

Psalm 128:3  Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table.

I like that last verse.  We always wanted alot of children around our table.  They are our everything!

4/23/13 - Just another day - 28.3 wks...goal 34 wks!

I only slept 2hrs last night.  I'm wired for some reason, maybe its the medication.  I fell asleep around 2am watching Dirty Dancing.  Then awoke at 4:45am.  I have been up ever since.  The dr's make their rounds around 5:30am and nurses do vitals around 6am.  I got stuck at 1:30am for blood.  My hospital door is a revolving door most of the time.  But, people who know me know I like action and noise and all that. 

Today I felt some contractions but not nearly as often as yesterday. I was on strict bedrest today because the mag sulfate medicine tends to make people feel dizzy.  Kids and hubby came up tonight so that was nice. And glad I had company today at lunchtime.  It kills some of the afternoon!

I got stuck a total of 5 times today.  Bloodwork, progesterone, steroid and new IV.  Good thing I'm not that afraid of needles. 

I have been laying in this bed since 11:30am yesterday, they won't let me out.  I am on complete bedrest til dr writes orders otherwise.
