Spending the day in the hospital

Posted by Jess on Sep 27, 2006 in Baby |

Well today put everything in perspective like never before.

This morning, before I even had time to wake up, I fell down the stairs. I was worried about these stairs when we first looked at the house and that was one thing I said we needed to take care of right away. Needless to say Steve made lots of phone calls about them after we got home from the hospital.

Anyway, so I fell down the stairs…the whole flight of stairs. Thank goodness I slide down mostly on my right leg so minus the large bruise that I am sure to get, Bonzo and I are doing well. First we went to the emergency room where they checked for the heartbeat and the doc spent about 5 seconds with me (I wasn’t a big fan of him but everyone else was amazing). After that they admitted me to the hospital and took me to the maternity ward where I spend from about 9:30 until 2:30 while they monitored the little one and did an ultrasound and monitored to see if I was having any contractions. I did have a couple (now I know what they feel like) but nothing big and they went away. Now I am sitting at home doing nothing because I was told that was all I could do, nothing.  Wow I didn’t realize how boring it could be to do nothing. Maybe it is just because I am being forced to do nothing. Anyway, Steve has been awesome…he waited with me all day at the hospital and just a few minutes ago I had to convince him that it was ok to go to Home Depot and that I would be fine.

Something like this really puts things in perspective. I know that I spent way too much time on my feet on Sunday and I still didnt’ sit when I got home from shopping and errands…why, there are more important things that need to be done then going to get groceries…like taking care of Bonzo. And today even though I am bored out of my mind there is no way I am getting up for more then a couple minutes to run (ok walk, and slowly) to the bathroom. We got really lucky because when i think of a pregnant woman falling down the stairs all I can think is bad thoughts…little guy got to go on his first roller coaster and he isnt’ even born yet.
