28 weeks old and already acting up! These naughty little guys have landed mom's butt in the hospital for bed rest for the duration of the pregnancy. I am still having contractions and more shortening of my cervix so I guess it is time to unpack the suitcase. Casey brought the camera so we could post a week 28 picture. We took a picture but although I feel fine I look terrible!!! I fear that posting the picture would only alarm people to think that I am more sickly than I'm leading on. I'm fine! I might try doing my hair, maybe a little mascara, and one of Casey's nicest t-shirts for a picture tomorrow:)
So my stay at the hospital has been interesting so far. I'm a bit of a celebrity around here - apparently triplets aren't too common:) I think the nurse like me because I'm not 17, I have insurance, and I'm married - oh and I don't smoke. A big change from what they are used to. I have had to have the same conversation with each nurse (which I have had a new one twice a day) every day. Here are some of the questions:
Were you surprised?
Do you have names?
Are you nervous? - How am I supposed to answer this?
Have you had a bowel movement?
When? - love these questions!
Numerous other medical questions involving seeing spots, leg pain, cramping....
My favorite question was when a nurse asked me if they were conceived naturally. I stared at her long enough while thinking of the best smart remark until she moved on. What does she think? These are going to be fake babies? Come on nurse - like these are the first IVF babies you have come across.
Casey has also had to answer a couple of questions quite frequently:
Is that a navy haircut?
Do you have a job?
We just crack up after he has to explain that he works mostly from home so all he needs is his laptop and cell phone. Not sure about the haircut questions -probably because we are close to the Navy base.
Next post...hospital towels. Why in the heck are they so small? They need to dry off huge pregnant people!
