Surprisingly, I was calm and at peace all day while waiting for updates. It didn't really hit me until Dr. Flath told me I needed to go back in tomorrow... that there is a possibility she will be here sooner than planned. I just assumed her heart rate would go down and I would be out of there in no time.
My sister Jenelle came up to the hospital... sat with me... made me laugh and kept me company through the boredom that came with limited stations on the ancient hospital television and flavorless food - AKA hospital room service. Luckily, my nurse Angela was fabulous and she even brought me a Diet Coke within the first 10 minutes of my short stay. Ironically, Jenelle and I watched a few episodes of TLC's "The Baby Story" to kill time. As much as I felt sorry for those poor women in pain, I realized it wouldn't be much longer til I was one of those lucky suckers in their same position.
Dr. Guinn recommended I take it easy for the night and watch for signs of pre-term labor... such as, contractions, lower back pain... headache... etc. I am amazed at how exhausted I am after a long day of just sitting. I think a relaxing bath and early bedtime will be the plan after Lulu goes to bed for the night.
