View Full Version : Any news from Opprobrium?
Any news today? have you escaped or are you locked up in a maternity hospital?
dora the ex...
oooh im just checking if any news?? good luck fingers crossed
I'm wondering too
Although her post last night did say she'd probably be in at least two nights....
I think she's going to bring her baby home with her though :D
She pmed me just before she left... I'm not quite sure, but I think Shamu's right, she's basically staying in hospital 'til the baby's born which should be pretty soon... don't quote me on it though!
How exciting...must dash over to the Turtle to see if there is any update there!
oooh, just posted on the Turtle...
"Well they're going to try to get me to 39 weeks (that's forever away!) but want me in every day for checks & monitoring. MrOp works across the road so it's not a hassle going in & at least I know that Bean is getting the best care & if anything happens they'll have me in & her out within minutes.
OK so it's not what I planned, it's all gone a bit Pete Tong but the main thing is Bean is fine and there are advantages to c-sections... the no tearing & ring of fire thing is an attractive bonus!
My Mum & Dad have come down & been looking after MrOp at home & me in hosp. Apparently they've organised & sorted the whole flat & all the baby stuff, and done the washing, ironing, cleaning, shopping etc...
I've had a rotten couple of days & pulled my curtain round & had a good old cry on MrOps shoulder, had a nap, ate chocolate much to the MWs disgust & watched chic flicks so I'm feeling a bit better. I've got a couple of weeks to get used to the idea (or wound up!) and prepare for it.
Tell you what though after all this & with the thought of recovering from a c-section looming I am DEFINITELY going to the bloody Take That concert! I f*cking deserve a good show now!!!
ETA: They're letting me go home tonight. I live close by & I've got lots of help at home now so I'm free. Had to promise to be a good girl & not move but after the last 2 days that is fine by me.
Thanks Lola :D
At least she'll get to rest at home.....
Ooohh how exciting!!!! Cant wait to hear her news!!
Thanks for all the wishes! :)
I came home & Mum & Dad have been here looking after me. I was feeling fine in hospital but now I'm home I feel crap. Dunno if it's psychological but I feel fainty, sick, everything hurts & I feel like my blood is pumping so hard it'll burst through my eyes soon!! And I'm still seeing flashy twinkly lights. And I've started getting a bit of a headache too but I think that's more down to stress & feeling sorry for myself & crying myself to sleep last night! And the top of my bump feels numb although Bean is still jumping about like a goodun so she's fine. My MW is on her way over to check me out, she's doing home visits when she can to save me trying to get to the hosp & MrOp having to wheel me everywhere & take time off from work every day. To be honest I'm hoping she'll send me back to hospital. At least I know I'm safe there should anything happen & I'm getting looked after. MrOp is not the greatest nurse or the most outwardly emotional person. It's actually more stressful being home than it is being in the hospital & I seem to not be able to handle anything now - stupid stuff like I ask MrOp to let the dog out & he sighs & moans about having to get up when he's watching a film & I can feel my blood pumping red hot again & start crying! That could be hormones or stress but it worries me that it could be my BP creeping up again. At least in hosp they would be able to check straight away, and in hosp the situation wouldn't arise anyway! No MrOp or dog!! I'll speak to the MW & see what she says.
Anyway, apart from all that, I've got another scan on Tuesday & an appointment with the consultant to decide when & how we get this Bean out. I've pretty much decided on a c-section, sometime between the 9th & 15th May - 8th is my birthday & I'm going to Take That so NOT before then!!! The thought of that is the only thing keeping me sane! :D ;)
Till then it's bedrest & constant checks & monitoring. Speaking of which, I'm going back to bed. I feel rough as a badgers arse.
aww oppo:hugs: , it sounds horrible for you. Lets hope they send you back to hospital if you feel better and safer there. Take care xx
oh no im sorry your not having a great time, i hope you feel better soon
Well I've been in & out of that sodding hospital more times than I can count! Every time I see the MW or she phones to check on me, she sends me back in! They do the same old checks, tell me the same things (BP up, ++protein, baby fine but big & breech) then they send me home & tell me to come back if anything else happens. :rolleyes:
Why they don't just keep me in & get her out I don't know! It's getting silly now & when they sent me home again yesterday I just cried & cried with frustration.
But I'm seeing the consultant tomorrow who will give me a date for the c-section & apparently this consultant is not opposed to getting babies out a bit earlier if Mums & Dads are that miserable, so hopefully she won't leave me hanging for too much longer (although I'm hoping for the 9th so I can still have my birthday & go to Take That!!).
My MW asked if I was sure I wanted to go for the c-section. I said I have severe SPD, I'm in a wheelchair & in bloody agony. I have pre-eclampsia. I'm anaemic. Bean is huge & breech. I'm exhausted. If it was one or even two of those things I'd still go vaginal but not with all of that, it's too much. She agreed & said she thinks it's best but just wanted to make sure I wasn't feeling presurised to go for the surgery. I think that was good of her but no, I'm sure, c-section, NOW.
You poor poor thing, at least it will soon be over and you will have your 'big' babba in your arms :flowers:
((((((((((((()))))))))))))) - thinking of you, and FWIW my c-sec was - I would go as far to say - lovely. Keep smiling
I'll keep my fingers crossed it all goes well when you see the consultant!
