I'm 38 weeks in hospital since yest morning with high blood pressure not seen a doctor today but guessing I'm being kept in for minimum of another day.
Had some visitors but they've said the roads are terrible cause of snow so have told people not to come as its risky.
So now I'm say here in hospital crying (quietly so no one else on ward can hear) I want to go home and I want a cuddle from my OH can't have either just so fed up- please tell me to sort myself out literally cannot stop crying!

Sage, what's your limerick? smile

Aww, I'd be crying to be stuck in hospital with no visitors and I'm not pregnant. (Actually, I'd probably be sleeping, but I have three kids already so thats a whole nother story grin).

Do you have ear plugs and an eyeshade? Are you allowed to potter down to the shop for some nice bubble bath and magazines?

MarianForrester Fri 18-Jan-13 19:54:50

YANBU! Sounds rubbish.

But I am very feeble- had to stay away for work last night cos of forecast for today, and was v sad without DH and DCS.

And I don't even have a pregnant/hormonal excuse. smile

Hope you get out tomorrow; try to get bit of sleep..

Thanks all for being lovely.
Was Told I could go earlier but weather so bad no one could come and get me! So hopefully tomo although saying that my bp has gone back up on the last 2 readings so maybe not I'm still getting my hopes up though
sage please tell us your limerick

Ask the midwives if you can have a bath. I used to love a good wallow at the end of my pregnancy. And if you're anything like me your bp will come down a bit during the night so by tomorrow morning it'll look good enough to go home. X

Sorry to hear your having a miserable time. When I was unexpectedly admitted to hospital, I was crying tellling DH it hurt, but I didn't want surgery, and the girl in the bed next door popped her head round the curtain and offered magazines and chocolate. I had a good chat with her after DH had been sent home by the nurses.

Is there anyone stuck in the ward tonight who you might be able to have a natter and a moan to?

Hope your BP drops, and you get home tomorrow.

Sorry you are feeling said. But, you are in the right place. You can rest (sort of). You will, in a few weeks, if not before, have a lovely little baby and be wishing everyone would go away to let you rest.

It will all be OK. It's a crap night out there and if you needed to get to hospital fast in the middle of the night it's great you are there already.

Take care. With love. Good Luck. Come back in a week or two and tell us what the lovely baby is like and how you are getting on.

thanks

A limerick:
There was a young man from Kent,
Who's sexual organ was bent.
But he said, 'it's no trouble',
Stuffed it in double
And, instead of coming, he went.

Sage gringringrin

OP - Mumsnet Classics will cheer you up. My Fridge has Found Religion is my favourite.

Do you have any interesting patients on your ward?

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 18-Jan-13 21:41:48

Sage smile
Spoken to a few ladies there's some nice people, some noisy People too I'm hoping they turn their volume control down some need some serious shut eye got hardly any sleep last night.
Bp is up again so could be staying in tomo but OH thinks the roads will be clearer so will be able to see him hopefully smile

i was sent to hospital the day i went into early labour as my bp was through the roof. had ds the next day but was then kept in for a week as my bp refused to settle. was put in labetalol and then had it increased to max dose but still wouldnt come down. this was xmas week and i was sooooo down about it - didnt help that ds was taken to nnu and on antibiotics for an infection.

on xmas eve they even had to give me another med to lower it which can cause headaches as a side effect so i felt shit all xmas day :-(

the day after boxing day, with bp still refusing to settle, i argued that it may settle better if i was at home. dr gave in and let me go with my labetalol safely tucked under my arm.

mw came out the next day - BP WAS NORMAL - and has remained so since. now dosing down the labetalol. down to 1 a day instead of 4.

honestly, its crap - utter crap - but theres a happy ending! cry when you need to, it does help.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 18-Jan-13 22:24:59

Thanks kafri
I am starting to get period like pains so wondering if it's starting now?
On another note the lights on the ward are still on and a woman has the communal Telly so loud when I can I get arsey and ask her to turn it down thought at ten she might have the couresty to turn it down at least?!

Kafri Fri 18-Jan-13 22:33:56

I'd ask her whatever time of day it's bugging you! At my Hosp you the TVs only worked with headphones which made it hard work to watch anything with a newborn - I kept getting the wire trapped under him or he'd pull it out of my ear. Downton went down the pan! Lol!
MIL paid 30 quid for 3 days TV over Xmas and I barely used it! Silly money really!

Kafri Fri 18-Jan-13 22:36:06

Ooohh pains-fingers crossed for u!

Can't believe that by the end of pg I was actually looking forward to the pain starting!! I spent weeks looking for symptoms and had none. Literally none! Woke up in early hours with contractions 10 mins apart and away we were!!

marriedinwhite Fri 18-Jan-13 22:39:31

Ooh turned into a baby coming thread.

Good luck OP. Let us know what happens. Fingers and Toes crossed. Going to bed now but will look in in the morning.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 18-Jan-13 23:39:18

Turning back into a sobbing mess I'm afraid- doc and midwife just caught me mid-cry not too embarrassing redid my Bp got to do it all again tomo sad
When they asked why I was crying I said its cause I wan t to go home and sleep I'm shattered- but ward lights still on and that obviously wasn't a big enough hint for communal Tv lady who still has it on loud sad another night of shit sleep

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 18-Jan-13 23:40:34

God I know I sound like a sadsack on that last post blimey!

Wishful you are allowed to be a sobbing mess, a sad sack, whatever!

Maybe the baby is coming, like married said <waves to married smile> please do keep us up to date.

Oh , I have a Limerick too. Very rude it is.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 18-Jan-13 23:58:39

Hoping it's filth hearts?

SageYourResoluteOracle Sat 19-Jan-13 01:11:42

What's your limerick, Hearts?
First person that makes OP laugh so much she goes into labour, drenching the silly TV bint across the ward with an unexpected gush of amniotic fluid, wins a prize. A secret prize (nods authoritatively).

Wishing - crying in your situation is so allowed. I was admitted at 29 weeks with pre-eclampsia and DD was measuring very small. After a week on the ward, 4 nights of which were spent next to a woman who snored like a warthog, (Seriously. A. Piggin. Warthog. All fucking night long), my consultant swished around the curtain and announced that they were keeping me in until delivery. I was: [shocked]. I didn't so much as have a wee cry when I was given the news, rather I sobbed great big snotty sobs. I was in for 6 weeks in total (thank god as I managed to get DD to 35 weeks gestation - a total miracle). They did give me my own room after the first week but yes, sleeping on a ward is nigh on impossible.

You won't be in that much longer - 'tis very much time limited. Hang on in there. You can do this! Sending you wishes for sleep and pokey, head flicky vibes toward your cheeky telly addicted cell mate. (And sneaky unmumsnetty hugs) (and, should I be worried that my iPhone now seems to have added the word, 'unmumsnetty' to predictive text?!) x

SageYourResoluteOracle Sat 19-Jan-13 01:27:53

Okay, this probably needs more work but best effort for limerick reflective of current situation:

There once was a silly bint on maternity,
Who watched noisy TV 'til eternity,
Until a mumsnetter's waters went pop,
And the bint had the sense to stop
'Cos she was covered in vernix and unattractivity.

Oh god. I need to get to sleep, don't I?!

DanFmDorking Sat 19-Jan-13 01:51:25

It’s amazing how thick the snow is out there.
I asked a snowman for the time and he just stared at me.

Never try to understand women.
Women understand women and they bloody hate each other.

Golf ball sized hail wouldn't be as destructive if we just made golf balls a lot smaller...
Do I have to think of everything?

I've just phoned the boss to see if I have to come in to work tonight. We decided that the roads are just too bad to travel.
It’s a shame really, because it's so warm in the gritting lorry.

Went to the fridge to check my burgers, aaaaannndddd they're off!

In spite of recent news, Tesco say their beef burger sales remain stable.

I went into Tesco cafe yesterday and ordered a burger. The girl asked if I wanted anything on it. I said £5 each way.

Dan good stuff

update
Big ward lights went off at 11.50ish and tv woman finally turned the bloody thing off shortly after.
Slept from 12.30ish till 6.30idh only waking up twice which is a million times better than night before so feel semi-human today.
Pains- I've still got period like pains in my back and sides like a constant ache and then pains coming and going in my fanjo nice is this it- is it the start?? Or is this my fanjo reacting with rage at the sheer cheek of communal tv woman??
