Hospital - Day 1

I checked in Sunday night (so I wouldn't miss Bear's birthday and Haqon wouldn't miss any work to bring me in.) As soon as I finished the paper work, they gave me a shot in my hip! Ouch! Then they monitored the twin's heartbeats for 2.5 hours. Everything went well.

Sexy Haqon was a sweetie and kept me smiling and happy and feeling loved. He stayed until I felt pretty settled and let him know I'd be OK. He even tried to set up my internet connection before he left. (sadly we didn't have all the info to get it done)

Then they moved me to the room I'll call home for the next 6 weeks. To my great relief, I have no roommate :) Don't get me wrong, I LOVED my roommates in college. But, pregnant women should not be forced to live in the same room as other pregnant women for 6 weeks. There's just not enough tact or politeness to go around...!

Then the nurses (who were each very, very sweet) start doing what they do....checking everything every couple of hours...making sleep even more impossible...and then wondering why I'm tired the next day..hehe

My doc left me the OK for Ambien to help me sleep, but I just haven't wanted to try it yet. Hopefully I'll naturally figure out how to sleep in a bed that's 1/4 the size of the bed I'm used to....hehe

Hopefully I will learn to be able to sleep in a bed that is 4x the size of what I am used to.
