A night in the hospital

To keep my blogger buddies updated, we had a rough night last night. Not to get to graphic nor go into too many details, I had a bad bleeding episode starting about 10pm last night. After making arrangements for Hannah who was already asleep, we headed to the hospital. My perinatologist wanted me kept overnight for observation and after a "little" procedure this morning, she has gotten the bleeding to stop. It was most likely due from the combo of fibroids and lovenox, a blood thinner that I must take. I am on STRICT bedrest now. My husband is going to set me up with a little kitchenette (microwave, frig, and snacks) in our bedroom. It doesn't appear that this pregancy is going to be easy at all. Again, I knew it would be difficult, but we seem to keep getting hit with something new and different for any previous experiences.

I learned something, though. Keep an UFO for a quick trip to the hospital. I sat waiting to be discharged for 1.5 hours....could have finished the boy gown in that time. :-)
