You see the problem with breakfast at the hospital is it gets delivered at 8am. What about the chick who gets up at 6:30am? I guess I'll have to get some breakfast type food to snack on. I wonder what's for breakfast? My guess...toast and some fruit cups no where near as much as I can eat. I can pack it away these days. So breakfast turned out to be cereal, juice, muffin, banana, cheese and milk. They also brought a menu so I can choose my meals from now on. I must say, what they say about hospital food is kind of true. Not the most tastiest. I'll have to bring in some good snacks. Enough about food...
Day One. We arrived at the hospital and headed to triage like we were told too, only no one told them we were coming....the lady in triage was sassy and did not make a good first impression. They did manage to figure things out and get me assigned to a room. We waited awhile before anyone came in and I actually went down for an ultrasound before we saw anyone. The little one (who they kept refering to as she and her) did really well. Passed the Bpp 8 out of 8like usual. Lots of good practice breathing and movements. After, came back up here and ate my first hospital meal, baked spaghetti, which was not horrible.We sat around while doctor after doctor came in to talk to us. Our OB finally came in and told us the plan. Tuesdays and Fridays are ultrasound days. Every otherday I will have an NST test and they listen to babies heartbeat 3 times a day. So plenty of monitoring. They think it will be 36 weeks now when we deliver but we'll have to wait and see.
The neo came to see us and gave us hopeful news.Though he is the only one who mentioned the following so were still unsure. He said the kidneys are normal size and appear normal so they should function okay. (We see the specialist next Friday so we'll know more then) He mentioned that the low fluid could be from something else, such as an underdeveloped placenta (which we had with Ty so it is very plausible)He also mentioned that the lung volume was right on track which he said more likely indicates that the lungs will function (there has not been enough studies done to prove this but it's his theory) it means the baby will need oxygen help but possibly not a lot. We shall see. Not that I don't believe him but I believe God is the one who will show us and heal our baby. It was nice to hear it butI believe God more then the doctors.
Sleep was non exsistent. They shut the ac off at night so I was boiling. I'll have to remember to get my fan. Then at 11:30 I awoke to the lady in the room next to me who seemed to be in labour screaming her head off for a few hours. I asked this morning and they said it wasn't a delivery room so who knows what was going on. All I know is I was awake because she was loud. Hopefully it doesnt happen tonight.I need my rest. Then it was just a matter of shutting my mind off and trying to stop tossing and turning. It just didn't go so well. I hope tonight is better. It is fairly quiet here which is really nice.
Day Two - NST went well. Babe only took 10 minutes to pass it, he/she is such an active little one.
We had the first lockdown, which means no one can leave the 4th floor or get to it. So if you are visiting and can't get up here we're on lockdown.This happens when someone brings a baby past the sensors. It took two hours to turn the alarm off. Poor Stephen couldn't get lunch because we weren't allowed to leave so he had some of my unimpressed lunch with "shepard's pie" blaahhh....not appetizing. It looked like cat food. I hope dinner is better. We did finally get down to the cafeteria for a nice little walk and now Stephen is taking a nap in my bed. I wish I could write more but this keyboard is killing my hands and wrist. You have to practically bang it to get it to type and it goes all over the place so this is it for now.....time to check babe anyways....
