Flashback Friday ~ GET HER OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
I had about two weeks to go to my due date when this picture was taken. My blood pressure had been up at my weekly doctor visit. My doctor sent me to the hospital for monitoring. I was so hoping they would tell me that Miss Icie's timer had popped and she was coming out. I was miserable. I'm pretty sure Icie was miserable too. The space inside my womb was getting smaller and smaller and her kicks were getting more and more insistent. I swear she told she wanted out too.
Instead I was monitored for two hours on the hardest gurney in the world. Again, silly me thought that a hospital with the word women in their name would have something a little more comfortable for a pregnant whale like myself to sit on. I swear no matter where or how I sat on that piece of crap I felt some piece of metal or spring or something hitting a pressure point.
After two hours of monitoring, blood work, and that oh so fun catheter I was discharged. I went home to bake Miss Thing for a few more weeks. The one good thing about this little excursion to the "womens'" hospital? When my doctor asked if I would mind delivering at another hospital, the shine of my first choice hospital had been severely dulled. I ended up delivering Icie in a regular old hospital and it was the best thing ever. Nicer room, better staff, and a wonderful NICU that took amazing care of Icie during her unexpected three day stint.
