You must be wondering what I do all day, so here is a little insight into my day. The Doctors and/or interns round at 6-6:30 am. They come in and ask me how I'm feeling, if I've had contractions, check my breathing, my belly and my legs. Then just as I start to fall asleep again, at 7:15-7:30, the nursing assistant comes in to take my vitals - blood pressure, temp, pulse, and oxygen. I try to catch a little more sleep before my breakfast comes at 8:05. After I eat, I get hooked up to the monitor. The monitor checks the baby's heart rate and movement as well as contractions. After that, I take a shower and watch the today show while I check e-mail or do a puzzle. Before you know it, lunch arrives! Afternoons are the longest. I usually get a few visitors which helps to break up the day and the Doctor will come in at some point to discuss what was seen on the monitor. Otherwise I read, play on the computer, watch a movie or take a little nap until 4:00. That is when the Ellen show is on. I try to watch that, it's funny. Dinner comes at 5:15 and Tim comes at 6-6:30, depending on how fast he drives. We hang out, play games, watch movies and eat chocolate. During the week he tries to leave by 10:00. I get ready for bed and read a little, I usually fall asleep between 11 and 12 at night. Exciting, I know, but I've already made it 13 days! Praise God, every day is a gift! Thank you all for the continued love and support you show us. We love you all!
