Let's get realistic, I'm sure this past week won't be my first admission in the next 12 weeks. So, I guess I need to pack a bag. I'm not talking for baby, I'm thinking for me. I look at it as I am warding away evil spirits.
I'll have a bag ready for those "Ya, I want you to come in and get checked, see you in triage" moments.
On Tues, Chris and I laid in bed ALL day and were just getting ready to go grocery shopping when my headache wasn't going away. So after taking my BP and having a high reading, I decided maybe it was a fluke and I would re-check it at Publix. Well there we were in Publix calling my OB in the last minutes of the office day to tell her 2 different machines, same reading. By time we got the go ahead to come in, I had NOTHING ready. I figured it wouldn't hurt to pack some pajamas and necessities.. Which ended up being a huge help since they did keep me. But now I need a bag that is ready to go, a "no thought" type of grab and go.
So this weekend I plan on getting this all together, stick it in my closet and hope I don't drag it out for a few weeks. SO what, a few pairs of pajama pants, tank tops, a hoodie, underwear, bras, toiletries, some snacks and OMG GLEE Season 1 DVD! And most importantly, a framed picture of Nolan. Simple enough. I think I am a pretty easy going patient as long as I have cute pajamas, my laptop and my own pillows. I'm good.
Now I am hoping pre-packing this will ward away the evil spirits. Am I forgetting anything? Any suggestions?.... Things you found you couldn't live without while on hospital bed rest?
