I've been in the hospital since Thursday, October 15th. I am BORED OUT OF MY MIND. My OB FREAKED over my 1 time fasting sugar of 182 and had me admitted immediately leaving her office. Basically they aren't even doing anything for me. I'm picking my own foods, and my numbers are fine. They are testing my sugars, but I was doing that anyway. Basically they determined the stress of working, etc, was causing my sugars to jump way up.

My numbers have been low 100s and even 90s since I've been here, but yesterday I got fed up and cried half the afternoon away. My number last night was 156. Stress = high number.

I'm trying to finagle a way to get out of this damn hospital. Whether it be cutting back work hours, being on bedrest AT HOME, etc. I will literally do anything she asks but I refuse to stay in here.

She has flat out told me she's keeping me until I deliver (aka be induced, since she said 38 weeks is the magic number). I'm sorry, I've been here 5 days and you expect me to stay another 3 weeks?! No thanks, Dr Lady. No thanks.

Cross your fingers for me. I am asking her today if she'll have an endocrinologist come see me so me and the endo can come up with a plan (whether it involves insulin or not, as I'm currently completely off insulin and my numbers are fine!) that I could take HOME and use OUTSIDE.

Oh, and did I mention that I went FIVE DAYS without internet because no one felt fit to tell me that my hospital has free wifi? Yeah, my nurse was like "oh, are you online?" and I said no, and she was like "I can get you the wifi password and login, it's free".

It was like God sent this woman to my bedside.

OH wow! I'm so sorry to hear you have been in the hospital on bedrest! Crazy what stress can do you to your numbers. I hope they can come up with a plan for you so you can go home. Feel better!

I was wondering where you had been, hadn't seen you on thebump. I am so sorry you are in the hospital. I pray they let you out, I can't imagine having to be there for all that time. Try crying in front of your doctor, hehe, hey it works sometimes!!

Theee more weeks...that just sounds nuts! If you are fine in a bed there, why couldn't you be fine in a bed at home where you at least are in familiar surroundings?
I hope that they get your end endo consult quickly and that you can head home soon.

Oh man, I'm so sorry!! I hope they'll at least let you do bed rest at home. 3 more weeks in the hospital does not sound fun. GL! I have my fingers crossed for you!
