Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

Waiting, Waiting


Amnio a lot weirder than I’d thought.

Still stuck waiting for them to decide what to do with me.

May go home tonight to be induced this weekend if amnio is good.

Baby looks good, 7 lbs 8 oz.

My platelets are low.

Still haven’t peed out the 4,000 bags of fluid. Am now bigger than ever.

Can’t manage eating yet.

“Waiting, Waiting”

    Waiting is worse than the bloating, I think.

    Just keep thinking about how good that first pee will feel when you get rid of the 4,000 units of fluid. And how much weight you will lose with it?

    BLEGH, no one likes medical limbo.

    Hope you get an answer soon.

    Becks, has anyone mentioned preeclampsia? I know your bp is okay, but it presents so differently in different folks. At any rate, you’re in the best place possible. How low is low in regards to your platelets? Mine hit 50k with my first. Hope her lungs are ready, you have an easy induction, and you’re waving from the otherside of all this in a short while.

    Thinking of you lots.

    I’m thinking of you, babe, and your wee girl too.

    Don’t you dare let them make you leave that hospital without a babe. If they won’t deliver yours, steal someone else’s!

    Good size you’ve got with that baby – hope she comes soon.

    Stay strong!!

    I’m thinking of Heffalumps and I don’t know why, hmmm

    Maybe later we can compare pictures of our puffy feet instead of babies?

    Hang in there babe, your daughter is almost here:)

    sending you all kinds of good, baby having vibes!

  13. On January 22nd, 2009 at 2:57 pm Melanie Says:

    I agree tell them you are not leaving until that baby is born….all that swelling is seriously SCARY SHIT!

  14. On January 22nd, 2009 at 2:57 pm kbrients Says:

    Oh the LONG wait…. but then it will all not matter a bit when you are holding her for the firt time…

    Sorry!! Hurry up little bit!

  15. On January 22nd, 2009 at 2:59 pm Ames Says:

    I’m siding with Heather on this one and worried about preeclampsia or HELLP…I know your bp is fine, but with my second pregnancy my bp never got really out of control but I had the swelling and low platelets. I’ll be thinking of you, and I hope that soon you’ll be updating us to tell us that your sweet baby girl is here!

  16. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:06 pm Ginger Magnolia Says:

    Thinking about you, honey. Sending all kinds of good vibes, hopes, hugs, and thoughts for you and Amelia to leave the hospital soon.

    Ah, the interminable hospital wait…just makes you want to, I don’t know, unplug something vital to make people start moving. I hope they get you an answer soon, although I don’t think I’d go home without a baby.

  18. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:11 pm loribeth Says:

    Yikes — I get bogged down with work for two days & this is what I find when I surface to read blogs. I too hope they don’t let you go until that baby is here! Take good care!

  19. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:17 pm Betts Says:

    Hospital dumb heads! Listen up! The baby is big enough. Induce Becky! Or cut her open and pull Amelia out! Do something to end this woman’s suffering, for God’s sake!!

  20. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:37 pm Kendra Says:

    The swelling is scary, but I only really had it with #1. (9 pound baby, born in August; people used to look at my feet swellking right out of my sandals and say “Oh, those are disgusting!” Or the kinder ones: “Oh, your poor sad feet!”) She’s a great size, if that’s any indication of how ready she is to join you. I hope they keep you there until she comes out; it just gets a little scary to think about being sent home when you know so little. But the end is near, and soon you’ll be able to look at her little face!

  21. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:48 pm The Mommy Says:

    Thinking of you and yours.

    Guessing you’re not going to get your “Honey, I think it’s time!” moment, huh?

  22. On January 22nd, 2009 at 3:52 pm tash Says:

    Um, yay? No? Huh?

    I hope they don’t discharge you if you haven’t peed. There, I said it.

    And since you don’t have email you’re probably reading this, like, oh, Sunday, holding your baby, so Whee!

  23. On January 22nd, 2009 at 4:30 pm Amy Says:

    No way!!! It’s awful what pregnancy does to our bodies!
    Hang in there honey:(

  24. On January 22nd, 2009 at 4:49 pm ScienceMama Says:

    Love and hugs, Aunt Becky! You’ll have a safe and healthy baby in your arms before you know it.

  25. On January 22nd, 2009 at 4:55 pm Jenn Says:

    I’m still here thinking of you, hoping everything is all right. I wish I could piss rainbows for you, promising you everything WILL BE okay but what the fuck do I know? Just know that I’m here if you need me. xoxo

    Handcuff yourself to the hospital bed and chant “Hell No, We Won’t Go,” – this is so frustrating – are they giving you steroids to help the baby’s lungs improve? Why can’t anyone make a decision? I wonder if it’s the insurance bureaucrats holding up the induction – don’t they realize that the sooner you have the baby, the sooner you leave the hospital.
    Well, I’m leavng town, so I’ll try to check in now and then.

  27. On January 22nd, 2009 at 5:26 pm Meg Says:

    Good luck, Becky. This sounds like no fun at all. Hope the discomfort isn’t too bad, and that it’s all over soon with another little chicken to cuddle.

  28. On January 22nd, 2009 at 5:58 pm baseballmom Says:

    God, how frustrating! I hope you get to have her this weekend…

  29. On January 22nd, 2009 at 6:11 pm heather... Says:

    I’ve been in a sick-kid cave, only to come back to your last few posts. I’m freaking, Becky! I hope you are ok. Fingers crossed!

  30. On January 22nd, 2009 at 6:21 pm Marly Says:

    Thinking lots of good thoughts for you!

  31. On January 22nd, 2009 at 6:24 pm Melissa Says:

    Eep, medical limbo!

    Here’s hoping that right now you are either A-unpregnant (the best) or B-have some answers (also quite good).

  32. On January 22nd, 2009 at 6:27 pm swirl girl Says:

    I hope it all goes well and goes soon!

  33. On January 22nd, 2009 at 8:21 pm lola Says:

    If you can survive the amnio, it’s going to be fine! My friend had her kids three months early, and they’re gymnastics stars. Girls are super strong babies, so I hope they get this show on the road for you. Big hugs and good vibes coming yor way, sausage family!

    Can’t wait to see Amelia!

  34. On January 22nd, 2009 at 8:22 pm Karen Says:

    Oh Mama. I am thinking about you constantly.
