Happy New Year everyone! May 2011 be a better year than 2010. For me, it would be almost impossible to have a worse year than 2010, so I am pretty sure I am stepping forward in the right direction. I am kicking 2010 in the dust, and stepping on it while grinning my evil grin, may you disintegrate in peace, stupid bad-ass 2010!!!
Just as a fun reminiscence of my 2010 New Year "celebration", I was in the hospital, on bedrest, 5 days after my emergency cerclage that didn't work. I had diarrhea and was lying down, not allowed to lift my head off the pillow so that I don't create intraabdominal pressure. I was also too embarrassed to allow the nurses to clean up my mess, so MrH had to clean up my shit. That was one great way to click into the new year. As a special dinner, we had two cups of Save on Foods parfaits (that probably created the diarrhea to begin with), and a hospital sandwich each (disgusting indeed) because the hospital staff in the cafeteria was off for New Years. We were so lost, that we didn't even realize that it was the New Year's celebration until about dinner time Dec 31, when we realized that I wasn't getting any dinner, and the sandwich came with the above explanation.
On Jan 2 at 2 am I woke up in labour. The rest is history.
To a better 2011, for everyone.
PS. I can only say one thing for 2011: I just bought pregnancy clothes. I phoned my OB today to ask if he thinks I will jinx it if I do, and he said "no, go ahead, I have a very good feeling about this pregnancy". So I did. Three pairs of pants and two tops. I can't wait to wear them. Is 12 weeks too early to start do you guys think?
