things are slowing down rapidly here it seems. I went to the hospital yesterday and ended up being admitted and spending the night on the OB floor of the hospital due to the severe flu. I came home this afternoon. I had a fever and dehyhdration and baby's heart beat was showing signs of distress. I am home now on bed rest (ha, I have always loved that word especially when you have 5 children) I feel quite lousy yet and we will see what happens. Personally I would just as soon go back to the hospital so I can make sure baby is ok...
We had a barage of company since Saturday evening and I over did it big time this week. Wednesday eve (the night before the hospital) our company left after 11 pm... When they arrived I was already quite ill and our baby had a high fever as well. I feel like a limp dish rag today still even after being pumped with IVS of sorts.
Please keep us in your prayers. Only about 3-5 weeks to go yet... It seems like a very long time feeling so yucky but I am so blessed to have this little squirming body inside of me. It seems like a very large body... I cannot wait to meet this babe! I want to keep this baby in here for at least 2 more weeks so it is fully cooked! I am only having number 6... I cannot imagine women who have given birth to 10+ babies! WOW!
All plans are officially off until the babe makes its debut here. No Easter, no nothin! Just R and R for a healthy babe. I have never had a problem saying NO... The gentle giant on the other hand is so gentle that he sometimes gets ahead of himself. He would do anything for anyone at anytime. He is a saint! He does not say no as much...
I am SO glad we finished our school year the end of March! Yeah! The children worked very hard to accomplish this. I am very happy about it due to the circumstances now. I feel the nesting urges but do not have any energy to back them up.
I am NOT writing this post to ask for help. If I have any more visitors at this time I think I will, well I don't know what but I just need some time and peace and quiet alone. That goes for after babe is born too. I am not one of those gals that likes hospital visitors. Please don't take it personal but I find it stressful for people to want to bring up all their children and hold a newborn baby or bring them over 2 days after you get home so the children can see you? and all that when mom just delivered a baby and is exhausted. I am just not that way. Honestly I like a few months under my belt to get adjusted and all. DO know I love you all though!
My dear dear mamma came and got all of my laundry and will bring it back tomorrow. AND a wonderful mamma meal!This is the best gift ever for me right now! I love you mom! THANKS!
I am still around but for all I know maybe I will post more from my beside or something... Time will tell.
