The bad news is that I am THISCLOSE to ordering a Magic Bullet. Those infomercials are dang convincing! And they seem to be the only thing interesting to watch on television on Sundays for a captive audience like me.
Oh yeah, I'm in the hospital. On bedrest.
It started Saturday night, just before 7 pm. I went to the bathroom and seconds later yelled to DH, "Oh my god, I'm bleeding!"
We made a quick call to my
I was seen immediately of course, given exams and tests and a complete ultrasound. Babies are nearly 2 lbs now, rock! And my cervix was still 2.4 cm, no further shortening, although now we have a bit of funneling inside.
The bleeding was not large in volume, but any blood is bad at this point. The doctors aren't sure if it's coming from one of the placentas or my cervix, it wasn't clear on the ultrasound. Either way, though, it's obviously not a good thing. Fortunately it tapered off overnight on Saturday, but they want me to stay bleed-free for 24-hours before they release me. So I will remain in this hospital bed for at least one more night, tied to three monitors and with an IV in my arm, until I prove my stability or expire from uncomfortableness.
Best case scenario, I will be back home on Monday. In this hope, DH is taking the day off so he can come get me. But even so, I will officially be on bedrest. I can get up to use the bathroom, shower, and make a quick sandwich. That's it.
This week, we will manage. My friend is willing to take Bean to her house Tuesday through Friday when DH goes to work. Then on Sunday, my Mom is flying in to stay for two weeks. My parents are so awesome, I can't even type about it without tearing up. After my Mom leaves, we'll have to figure something out. There is the possibility that during the next three weeks, all my tests will come back so totally awesome that I can resume light duty.
But probably not.
I've obviously got a lot of emotions swirling around right now, but I'll keep this post focused on the physical details. It's looking like I'll have plenty of free time coming up to drone on about stuff, I need to save some topics for later.
And in the meantime, anyone want to offer a review of the Magic Bullet? Can you really make alfredo sauce from scratch in ten seconds? Do you use green noodles?
