We still haven't had any bleeding & I'm thankful for it. I'm more at ease now, I feel like I have accepted the fact I have to be here & I've been dealing with it with no problem...I guess because my main stress is out of the way. The nurses have been so excited for me about the divorce that they have been sharing it with each other & I get the "I heard you got some good news!" & it lifts my spirits. I already have my favorite nurses even thought everyone is amazing & I have been told so many times "thank you for being such an amazing patient" because I don't bother them. The only time I call for them is when I bleed or when I'm in pain while bleeding. But other than that I'm very quiet & don't bother anyone. I just tell them I don't like being a bother if there is no need because I know they're busy. I'm actually dreading leaving in a few weeks because I've grown attached to these women because of how amazing they just are. I had one tell me she will be very sad when I leave once Eden is born. This hospital is beyond amazing & I'm very lucky to be here, not all hospitals are like this (ESPECIALLY Jersey ones in the area where I'm from).
Yesterday I had my weekly ultrasound & they were making sure everything looked good & near the end I had the funniest experience. Eden had gotten the hiccups & I told the lady she had the hiccups & when she was done she moved the wand thingy to where Eden's head & chest were & I was able to see her with the hiccups!! My eyes became so watery & I was cracking up real hard because I had never seen a baby with hiccups thru an ultrasound before! It was the main highlight of my day! Next week will be her measurements ultrasound, I'm so curious to see how big she is. I hope everything goes okay from now on but if the bleeding starts & they decide to bring her, I will be more at ease about her coming.
In the morning yesterday when they had me monitored for the 30-60mins they do, I was apparently having baby contractions & I didn't even know & my nurse & a different doctor came in my room very concerned & I was very confused why they seemed so concerned. They were asking me if I was having any contractions & if I was in pain or even felt my stomach hard & I kept saying no still confused. As they adjusted the stuff on my belly & put one hand each on my belly they finally explained to me what was going on & I was shocked. I told them I never knew I could have contractions & not even know it. They said it's a very natural thing & nothing to worry about but if I felt it & they were bad, then that's when you worry. But they said it was baby contractions & nothing to worry about. Hope today is another good day!
Oh the attachment I had to the hospital and my nurses when I was on bedrest!!! I can totally relate. I'm so proud of you and your positive outlook! You can do this and you are doing it...everyday counts. Keep it up, we're all here for you and cheering you on!
I'm so glad you are having a good day. That's so awesome you got to see her hiccups on screen- something you most likely could never see if you weren't in the situation you are. Sometimes the small joys can really help you get through the worst of it. Hang in there!
Love and Hugs
glad your getting such great care. Hugs. Nicki
