Bedrest Type: Complete. May raise bed up to 30 degrees to aid digestion during meals. No bathroom privileges (yes, this means a catheter and bedpans).
Food: Whatever I want. Including afternoon and midnight snacks such as cheesecake, fresh fruit or shakes. Best food items so far: fresh grapes and pineapple, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cereal, and the pizza we ordered in.
Necessary Items: iphone, computer, books, lip junk, facial wipes (so you don't have to wait to clean your face in the morning), breath mints (so you can kiss your hubby without knocking him over), your own pillow, a pen (for luxuriously choosing your hospital oh-so-delicious meals and snacks in the morning), a huge cup for water, TV series on DVD (my choice today - Alias Season I), family and friends ready to text, call, and facebook, a complete lack of dignity and modesty, and a sense of humor.
Items Still Lusting After From Afar: Kindle (dammit they just came out with a new one but it won't be ready for delivery until September), an air mattress bed (mine is far too uncomfortable--might I mention there are only two in the prenatal ward--hello going too be here for a loooong time!)
Activity of the Week: shooting trash across the room at the bin and completely missing many times until there is a little pile of garbage on the floor.
Favorite Moment: having pizza and movie with hubby yesterday
Least Favorite Moment: breaking out into contractions during pizza date and requiring anti-nausea and anti-contraction meds. Thankfully it only took one shot to get them under control.
Move Status: We closed on our house Monday before I came to the hospital. Now my fantastic hubby has unpacked 75% of the house along with a huge list of things required when you move into new construction such as ordering blinds, arranging for landscaping, etc.
Work Status: I called my scheduler and quit all of my online classes as soon as this happened. I don't want any stress!
What I miss: my dog.
Attitude Status: I no longer cry when my hubby leaves after visiting. Pretty mellow for the rest of the day. Not angry. Not sad this happened. Just taking one moment and day at a time. Happy that we reached 28 weeks.
