The lady in the room next to me is so loud (Stephen even got to hear how loud she was) and I swear every 20 minutes (especially at night) she presses the damn call nurse button. I'm sorry but really......your neighbour would like to sleep and ear plugs are not cutting it. Stephen is brining my fan tomorrow. Hopefully it cuts out the noise.
Today has been pretty uneventful. They are going to start bringing me my synthroid at 7am so I can eat when breakfast gets here at 8. Baby was not cooperating this morning....he did not pass the NST test after an hour. They had the resident look at the results and she said they were fine. The baby didn't have any high minutes but the heart rate was still really good and did everything it was suppose to so the resident was pleased. The baby is still moving well but I am waiting to talk to the doctor about the NST results to get his opinion. Also, I had two contractions and both times the baby's heartbeat went down (but right back up) so I want to see if that is normal.
We had a quiet day, I have been incredibly naseous all day and finally caved and took a gravol, hopefully it helps. Tonight will be an early bedtime. We just lazed around today, ate some unflattering hospital food. The turkey last night wasn't bad, it was like a tv turkey dinner. Lunch today was so disgusting I couldn't even eat it and dinner was...okay. The BBQ rib wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was just like a ground pork patty. Dinner was exciting however because of the fire alarm going off and watching all the fire trucks race to the building, right outside my window. They shut all the doors and we waited, nothing happened, false alarm I guess.
The doctor just stopped by so I feel better now. He said I was the infamous case everyone is talking about he he he....yes that's us. The decelerations while contracting are perfectly normal as long as they go back up (which they did) and the high minutes don't mean much since our baby has a rather high heart rate anyways. They said the heartrate looks really good so I feel a lot better now,we mentally, my tummy is still rather ill.
Still doing alright emotionally. I find with having things like checking the baby and nst's and breakfast, lunch and dinner all at scheduled times it makes the day goby quickly to have those to look forward too and Tuesdays and Fridays are ultrasound days (yahhhh see my little little) and then Sundays are freedom days so really it's not as boring as I thought it would be. I get to wacth shows like Toddlers and Tiaras. I've never seen a full episode until yesterday and it made me sick to watch it, where is CAS? That show is horrid and wrong in so many ways....but the sad thing is it's addicting. I tried to watch a baby story but it made me sad. One of the moms died a few months after giving birth due to cancer and I couldn't watch anymore. Tomorrow is ultrasound day, I cannot wait to see my little little and get a new picture! I'm a little werry about the ginger beef stir fry for lunch but the chicken bits for dinner should be okay. I'll give an update once Itry them, hopefully they are not like the tomato macaroni beef I had today...blah...two bites and that's all I could do!
We managed to score a sweet chair for our room, they don't have cots and since Stephen wanted to spend the night we got a recliner and get to keep it until were out. Its really quite comfy and I prefer it over the bed.
I am starting to see the niceness of the nurses is hit or miss. There are some really awesome ones and then some...not so awesome ones but I still am polite to them. I know they are under staffed so we try to not bother them. We still try to be as nice as possible. Some of them are really good about talking about Ty which I love, but that reminds me, one of the ladies in antenatal lost her baby yesterday. We walked by the desk and saw the perinatal loss binder (which I wanted to go through and see how accurate things were) so we asked the nurse and she said someone did loose their baby. It broke my heart. I just wanted to find her and give her a huge hug and sit and cry with her. When we had lost Ty I wish someone who had been through a loss would have been there, it would have been comforting to know someone who had gone through it as well. I pray that family is holding up and reaches out to Bereaved Families to help them. It sure helped us, it was one of the biggest helps to meet others who went through what we did. Can't really find that this time, not with our situation. We still don't know, but I do know every week we make it is a blessing. Okay this keyboard has made me angry enough for the night. I am going to watch the sunset and do a crossword.
