We are in the hospital-for real!
I have never tried posting from my phone before so I will try and keep this short. We had a check in time of 8pm last night and I was shocked to hear they were actually ready for us. Brian and I both felt a little sick as we made the trip in. There was a couple leaving with their new baby as we were coming in. Brian saw me staring at them and said, "that WILL be us" oh I love his optimism. We were all signed in and headed back to our room. We got a whole new non-Addison room. I felt like throwing up when we got there until we saw not only one, but BOTH of our Addi nurses waiting for us. Our room was decorated and Happy birthday Mason was written on the white board. In an instant things were smiley and happy and not scary. I was hooked up to the monitor and what do you know...heartbeat! What a new experience. I was given miso last night twice and an ambien to help sleep. I've been up since 4am, but I really wasn't sleeping great before then...can we just have him already?!? Just hearing that galloping heartbeat on the machine is music to my ears...well that and the sound of Brian sleeping next to me. Thank God he is here and thankfully one of us is getting some sleep. I will try to update later....this is more of a test to see if it works! Still waiting for this to feel real...I still can't believe this is all really happening.
