Another Update On Baby Chili Pepper - In The Hospital...

Well, it appears that I have become such a techno-geek that I cannot stay away from my computer. I have been in the hospital since around 1:30 this afternoon. Still having surges and still not feeling anything more than slight pressure and a little discomfort due to her head being low.

We have a really great nurse. Her name is Kelli and she is the best. I have my antibiotic IV in place and am currently working on my second dose. I have to be in the bed for about 15 minutes every hour so that they can check Chili's heart beat and monitor my surges. Other than that, I am free to move around. We are done laps around the common areas of the third floor, as well as spent some time in a wonderfully warm and soothing shower. And when I am hanging out in my room, I am usually standing or sitting on my yoga ball.

I do have to say that the nurses here think that I am insane...probably because I am still laughing, as well as running or doing squats and lunges during my laps.

On that note, I am going to sign off now so that I can start another walk-about. I am trying to keep as busy and active as possible...cause once my "membranes release" (sorry for that visual), then I am not allowed to wander far from my room.

Love ya,

Kara & Miss Chili Pepper

P.S. Who ever is the first person to come and visit me after Chili Pepper is born and brings me some wonderful Eggs Benedict...they will be my most favorite visitor ever! I am having trouble visualizing anything other than Eggs Benedict with lots of Hollandaise Sauce and plenty of Hot Sauce! What can I say...this Zen Mommy is also a Hungry Mommy!
