How far along: 32 weeks, 4 days
Weight gain/loss: this I’m not sure on. They haven’t weighted me since my first day here. But I bet I’m heavier than usual as I’ve had lots of treats sent my way and the hospital chocolate chip cookies are to die for.
Maternity clothes: Wearing lots of yoga pants and sweaters here in the hospital
Sleep: not good, at all. I don’t sleep well in strange places anyway, and going from a King size bed to a hospital twin has been quite an adjustment. I maybe get 5 hours of sleep a night.
Best moment this week: the out pouring of love we have received from everyone with our stay here. Family, friends and even the nurses here have all made this a little bit easier.
Food cravings: Still loving fruit, lemonade, the hospital cookies (and their grilled cheese)
Food aversions: none.
Movement: Lots of movement.
Gender: MY BOYS!
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, really uncomfortable, trouble breathing sometimes, anxiety, and stress.
Miss anything: My house, dog, bed and time with hubby.
Looking forward to: October. Every time a nurse changes the date on my white board, it’s a day closer to seeing my boys!
We had a sono on Thursday. All was still the same. Cervix was still at a 2.3, which left me feeling a little defeated. I had heard so many stories of people going into hospital bed rest, their condition improving and them getting to go home. I didn’t have my hopes up (well maybe just a little) but when I got back to my room I had a major breakdown.
Here is how my day typically goes:
Then my nurse checks in on me a few times, I get Vitals read around 2pm again. Adam comes back after work (works out well since he can let traffic die down) My new night nurse appears at 7pm, I usually order dinner, Adam waits until it arrives and tests it for me, and then he goes back home.
Thank you all for your sweet e-mails, comments and thoughts!
