Bedrest Chronicles Day 34
Well another labor day has passed without any true labor on my part. Considering my position, I'll consider that a major achievement!
Current weight: +12 which means I lost a pound this week. No, I was not trying to do this. However, hospital food combined with me running out of fun-size milky ways did the trick. I am now restocked with peanut m&ms. Yum.
Baby status: getting gold stars on his non-stress tests (NSTs) and bio-physical profiles (BFP) this week AND he breathed everyday without making me suffer for thirty minutes on the blasted table. What a good boy! He has also reached the next milestone of 32 weeks which is a HUGE difference in premie world. My doc admitted to me that the night she saw me, she never thought we would make it this far. I'm so grateful for this!!!
Best foods of the week: peanut butter and jelly sandwich and cheetos! Having no chips for a month made the cheetos extra delicious.
Crying jags: One.
Activity of the week: hitting the balloon next to my bed over and over again.
Coolest things my hubby did: went to Target and bought a bunch of diapers since they are having a sale. My vision of him standing in the diaper aisle made me giggle. He also washed all of the baby clothes, sorted them, and started putting them away. :)
Score of the week: finding my video baby monitor 20% off at the above store. :)
Moment I'm not so proud of: getting irrationally angry after reading a post from a woman who did one IVF and got three kids (twins and singleton) out of fresh and frozen embryos--then complained about having to do IVF again to have her fourth. I hardly ever feel flat out pissed off because of my circumstances or those of others, but for some reason this time I wanted to kick her a@! (from my bedside of course).
Refreshing moment: hubby briefly mentioned to a work acquaintance (that he reconnected with up here) that I was in the hospital. He and his wife came to visit me with flowers, balloon, chocolate, and comfy socks. Even though we were strangers, it was nice to have someone go out of their way since I don't know anyone up here yet. My hubby said it "refreshed his faith in humanity" that someone would do something so unexpectedly nice.
Biggest news: my dad is feeling much better and is booked to come up to Anchorage on Saturday. This means I might break out of this joint in five days! I'm crossing my fingers on this!
