Re: Anyone NOT bring anything to hospital?

I brought only my phone and the clothes on my back. I was totally fine. I stayed 2 nights and 3 days. My hospital had a laptop that I could request to use, and I did. Otherwise I didnt need anything else and I was totally fine.

I know! I used my cell phone to call hubby when I was allowed to go home but I slept the entire time I was there. Didn't crack a magazine or anything. Hubby was shocked that I hadn't been on Twitter for three days! I MUST have felt like crap!

Re: Anyone NOT bring anything to hospital?

I think I'm only going to pack toothbrush, paste, Chapstick, lotion, pads, some hard candy, iPad, phone , granny panties and socks. I was going to pack bathrobe and slippers. But let's be honest only in for 23 observation and I don't see myself leaving that bed till I have to go pee or home.. Wearing same clothes there and back. If I need to stay longer I'll have hubby bring things to me. And putting pillows in car to keep in there for the ride home.

Re: Anyone NOT bring anything to hospital?

Definitely bring a robe, one of the things they will want you to do is get up and walk as soon as possible. I was returned to my room at about 2 to 3pm, my afternoon nurse didn't get me up to walk (which I was expecting her to do). When my night nurse came in she asked "have you been walking yet?" I said "no" and she was like "you should have been". Luckily I'm a night owl so we did a quick stroll at about 11pm at night.

In the morning I walked the hall a couple of times. One of the reasons is to prevent blood clots, even though they have the compression boots on. Another thing is that it helps get your digestive system moving.

I was also in for just the overnight observation.

When you get home you should do a few minutes of walking every couple of hours, you should not be on complete bedrest.

If you aren't in a private room have headphones is nice for your music. Also having some form of eye "shade" to make sure the room is dark helped me.

You want loose fitting clothes for the ride home and a tummy pillow for between your tummy and the seatbelt. If possible have them give you pain meds prior to your drive home.

as you prepare for the day.
