Man oh man, we sure like to live it large around here.
We have spent the last almost 24 hours at the hospital and not for a birth related event. We aren’t even at the hospital I am birthing at! Remember a few days ago I mentioned that Monkey was sick? Well I thought it was just a wee cold that would pass but yesterday he started complaining about not being able to breathe properly. Then there was some vomiting. And then his breathing became REALLY laboured. It scared the crap out of me. We were in the car when it all went downhill and I was thankfully sitting next to him so noticed it all and I said to Eric “Straight to the hospital Emergency”.
They were amazing. They did not make us wait AT ALL (Tweed Heads Public Hospital, we are so happy with the care we have received) and the treatment has been amazing. Poor Monkey did not respond well to his virus and his breathing just couldn’t cope. He is bright and perky today but we are yet to go 4 hours without breathing assistance and that is what they want before we go home. As it stands we are hoping to go home by lunch or soon after. Then it will be some warm snuggly days at home making a full recovery hopefully so we can get ready for baby to arrive.
Needless to say I think all this drama has kept baby tucked inside but I have continued to have pre-labour pains and baby feels even lower today if that is actually possible. We see the OB tomorrow morning so keen to get that update.
I have a foggy head and runny nose today so going to tuck into the fruit to try and ward it off. I could do without being sick for labour! Maybe a weekend baby? We can only hope. Sunday feels good to me! Ha!
