wondering

as I sit here listening to Rhena NOT take her nap, I'm wondering if it'd be considered rude to leave my blog address on our answering machine so folks would stop calling to see if the baby has come out yet?


Having gone through this before with Rhena (she was 8 days late), I know deep down that folks are just being nice and I really do feel appreciative that all of stepford is checking in on my well-being. it's just... well...

you know that old saying about if you have to ask about how much something is, you probably can't afford it? well.. if you have to ask me if I've given birth yet, maybe it's cause I HAVEN'T, or I'm really just not that into you to let you know otherwise???

bah. sorry. I'm just being grouchy. I never got my fried chicken yesterday, so maybe that's the root of it all. Momma's gots to have the grease every now and then to keep the smile on the face, ya know.


and speaking of smiles... I have to say out loud that I'm DAMN impressed with myself for not ripping into the 2-pound box of chocolates I bought a week ago for the nursing staff at the hospital. TWO POUNDS!!!! CHOCOLATE!!!! IN MY HOUSE!!!! FOR A WEEK!!!! untouched!


yes... I am going to the hospital with a thank you gift for people I haven't met yet nor have had any services rendered from. (yet) I figure it doesn't hurt to butter up the staff that will be in control of my drugs, and how quickly I get them, though. cause you know we here at the fever are BIG supporters of not feeling childbirth.


and on the subject of not feeling..... I am in no way shape or form feeling like what I ate for lunch was enough food, so I'm about to go troll for some leftover halloween candy. there's GOT to be some hidden somewhere, even if it's just a shitty bag of m&m's......

peace out....

I totally get how you are feeling. When I was pregnant with Crazy, I'd go to hub's shop and all the Marines would be like "sooo...have you popped that baby out yet?" and at that point I would look down at my humungous stomach, look back up at them and say "Oh why Yes, I have. I just left it at home to fend for itself. Thanks for asking!" I am sure by the time I actually popped him out, those guys thought I was the biggest bitch! lol

So you're saying that nurses can be brought to your beck and call with mere chocolate?

You're damn straight we can! Good patients know to keep candy and goodies out in the room and offer them to the staff. We tend to check on them quite frequently.

Change the outgoing message to say "Hi this is Carrie and Troy and no, the baby hasn't arrived yet. I am probably resting or chasing Rhena so feel free to leave a message"

Then let the machine get it!

we brought the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and the anesthesiologist asked if he could have more. it's possible, after the epidural, i might have said 'he can have all the muffins he wants!' but he was very attentive, so whatever works right? thinking of you!

For two weeks before Cole came, I wouldn't call anybody unless I absolutely had to. Everytime someone would answer and find it was me, they'd get all excited and ask if the baby had come. My mom would call every couple of hours, everyday, to check...as if I'd forget to call if I had him! Of course, the day he actually came, most everyone was not home when I called to tell them, and my mom had left town half an hour before he came out! Figures!
