Today I thought long and hard about trying to find an incubator to maybe put over my belly to help Ellah out a little. But thought it was just my mind wondering crazy, trying to figure out a way to help further along the process...I didn't dare mention this idea to my doctor either in fear of sending me off to a looney section of the hosptial. Oh my, the sky bridge was AMAZING! Others might not find it was exciting but it was b-e-a-utiful. Miah found a little section where a creek runs right under and we have made this our special spot, cute eh? We now try and go there twice a day. Maybe if any of you come and visit, I will show you the magnificent spot of ours.
So you are all familiar with the hospital smell? It is becoming more like home, which is fine, since I work in the health care field myself. But this smell was starting to make me self conscience...it was more like bad body odor or along the lines. Well I was thinking, the first day maybe it could of been me, all the stress and shots coming at me, I was bound to work up a sweat. But then kept smelling it, just all over and I kept asking Miah if it was me. I started thinking this Perinatal unit is pretty full, those nurses work pretty hard....it must be them, right? I began spending more time trying to scrub every place twice. I finally figured it out....its these darn hosptial gowns we wear!! Yes, they wash them or at least they say they do but goodness, I think they forgot to add the detergent. Think of how many woman have worn these and seriously it takes a lot of wear and well there comes a time when the stench just does not go away. Did I mention they are also VERY fashionable? Hahaha, maybe I should drop a suggestion in the box at the front day on the way to the Skybridge.
For this next section, you woman will completely understand...hopefully and if not, just say you do for my sake. I mentioned before, emotionally I have been fine through my pregnancy but here it a little different. Well yesterday the Emotionally-Crazed Woman came back out. I feel bad for Miah because he has to console and deal with me, I am not mean just cry and ask the same questions every time and want answers that the doctors don't even know. I look back now and laugh at the situation, especially the object that set me off. Each morning with breakfast we fill out menu for the next day. Well I was so excited, they finally had something that I would actually really like, Cheese Manocotti, breadstick and some kinda of squash...I was pumped. I looked forward to it all day. My dinner was over an hour late and I had just been kinda down at the time...it arrived and well I opened it up...NOTHING and I mean nothing I would have ever ordered. I instantly started to cry and seriously went into the batheroom and turned off the light to continue to cry. I know I sound crazy and extremely spoiled but I swear at the time, it all made sense, kinda. But Miah coaxed me out of the bathroom and held me and his normal wife came back again.
Well everything is still just staying steady, Ellah is still doing good, growing and staying strong...They gave me Ambien to help sleep, ya that didn't work at all. It just made me really dizzy so they decided to take me off that. Heartburn and headaches are starting to come back, which are a few of the symptoms and slowly the medication is starting to not work so well. But we are doing good, we are under great supervision and have faith in our doctors. Hope all is well. Here are a few pictures so far...enjoy!!
