Peter and I were chatting this morning about how much has changed since we entered the hospital. In those first few days, I cried every single time he left. He could be going downstairs to the cafeteria and I'd be weepy. We were absolutely terrified that my water was going to break, which would mean an immediate removal of the stitch. It sucked the air out of the room. After the first post-admittance u/s showed that things were much better, everything changed. I would still get weepy on his way to work, but otherwise, it was just like being at home. Now, as 2 weeks have passed, we are back as we were. He goes to work, I stay in bed. Life is bedrest normal. It really does feel like we are back to as we were at home. The bed is much smaller (which means more cuddling!) and the potty chair is closer than the bathroom and, of course, my meals and pills come to me via someone I'm not married to, but otherwise... Normal.
I have my favorite nurse today. The babies like her too. :) They cooperate during their HB scans. Maya just sits still and lets the monitor rest on her, even without the nurse holding it. Bobby still kicks it, but he didnt move, which allowed the 2 minute scan to actually take 2 minutes! They are napping right now. I feel an ocassional flip, which I imagine as them turning over and changing position, but no dance party. I'm sure that will come just as I am drifting off for my nap!
My computer is about a month old and IE started giving me grief, so I just downloaded Google Chrome as my web browser. Let's see how this works... It was Peter's suggestion and, so far, the issues that I've been having with IE have not popped up. Could it really be this easy???
I emailed with my girlfriend, Terri, today about online shopping. I have to say, I've never been much of an online shopper, but bedrest had fixed that for me. I ordered a nightgown yesterday (I decided that I needed something other than my day clothes to wear to bed... Not that a granny gown is sexy in the least, but I didnt want to freak out my nighttime nurses or the early morning resident). Today, I ordered birthday cards for Peter. How neat is that. Hallmark can come to me. I was worried about not having anything for his birthday (It's next Wednesday) and now, crisis averted! All thanks to my VISA and the internet. Welcome to the 21st century, Michele... Now, if I could just get into the habit of online bill pay... (You'd think bedrest would have shoved me there, but, inspite of my best intentions, I'm still writing checks...)
Wow... Nine Days... Still looking at Carrie's nifty calendar and just tickled pink (and blue) with that single digit. I wish I was crafty and could knit (Sarah swears she's going to try teaching me again... After all, time is what I have, people!) so that I could make little thank you's for all the wonderful support we've received. Perhaps I'll give knitting another try (which may mean that you well meaning folks might get trapezoid dish cloths!)...
