Surprise! My water broke last night. With friends over. On one of my new barstools. It wasn't pretty but we all got a good laugh until I started to freak out about having a baby born at 34 weeks.
My friends were so cute--they immediately started cleaning my bathrooms even though it was almost 10:00 at night. I called Sam and told him the bad news and he came home right away (he was watching a game with a friend.)
We headed to the hospital and they immediately gave me a steroid shot for his lungs. (Now I really am on 'roids!) I had contractions on and off and then they stopped. My doctor decided not to induce me yet so I can continue to get antibiotics and more steroid shots. At first, I dreaded staying in the hospital for two days before even having my baby (knowing full well he will be in the NICU for awhile after he is born) but they I figured out this place is Club Med.
I'm alone in a nice room, lying in bed, watching movies (Australia was worth watching just to see Hugh Jackman coming out of the water--that man is so ripped.) They brought me chocolate covered strawberries, all sorts of food and treats and here is the kicker--a massage therapist showed up and gave me a free massage.
Now I don't want to have my baby. I just want to stay here forever! Thanks to my awesome mom for swooping in and taking on my kids and house. I basically had NOTHING prepared and no food in the house. Once my water broke, I just wandered the house not sure what to even put in a bag.
On another note, the kitchen is done and I was planning to do my big reveal last night but here I am lying in a hospital bed with no way to upload photos so the reveal will have to wait. I know the coming weeks are going to be hard--when Ryan was in the NICU, it was the worst days of my life. I've just got to sit back now and enjoy my babymoon until Thursday.
