Lockdown. Day One.

I was having a really hard time trying to stay positive about being away from my life for this extended period of time. I've been trying really hard to look at this like a vacation, like I was checking into a hotel, or getting a little down time before all hell broke loose. I couldn't have been more delusional.

I know it is only the first day and we have a lot of kinks to work out, but the "technical" problems aren't helping. My air isn't working right, the monitors aren't connected properly to the Nurses station, and to top that all off, there is some type of call button malfunction happening, and the Nurses keep buzzing in here to see what they can do to help me. I'm really fighting the urge to go all hormonal on them, it's way to early in my stay for that.

Hopefully we will get into a better routine in the next day or so. Maybe they will realize that I'm here to monitor the babies, not because I need to tell them the approximate time of my last dump, or how many ounces I pee'd on my last trip to the bathroom.

They offered me a sleeping pill, I foolishly declined. I'm beginning to rethink my decision.

Oh Sweetie,
You are in our thoughts and prayers throughout the days. Some of your loved ones (including me)are already making plans to bring goodies to the nurses so they will be extra attentive to your needs. Is it too early to visit? You know "we" can unintentionally overwhelm sometimes in our eagerness to show support. Don't be afraid to let us know when you need to be alone or someone to help out with Munchkin.
Much love,
Your Aunt

I'd give it a couple of days before you REALLY go off on them, otherwise for the rest of your stay, you'll be known at the nurses station as THAT girl in Room X.

Good Luck and best wishes!

Wait, what???? Did I miss a chapter here? Are you on bedrest for the rest of your pregnancy in the hospital?

Hope they have good TV there for you at least!

And sending you all the best thoughts I can.

Oh no! I hope it gets better quickly and you can enjoy some down time.

I can't imagine how hard this has to be one you. It will all calm down once everyone gets used to it. Good vibes being sent your way!

Oh no! Hopefully they will stop calling you on the intercom (and interrupting your naps probably)! Hang in there!!

I was thinking of coming to visit you to pass the time but I didn't know if you would think that was weird. I hope things start looking up there - hopefully you have 100% access to a laptop and the internet so you can watch movies and play games.
