Preeclampsia sucks.

Wasn’t sure whether I should really blog this stuff, but I am bored beyond belief right now, so there! Just so you know, I am suffering big time cabin fever… so don’t hold anything I say against me 🙂

I am into my 26th week in my pregnancy and have been hositalised for preeclampsia… which means that I am having a premature baby. How premature is anyone’s guess, but if you look it up on wikipedia, you’ll see how annoying a disorder it is. In my case, it seems to be attacking my kidneys. No failure yet, but if you’re O negative, look out!

The thing that pisses me off is that I feel perfectly fine 70% of the time. And, during these times I am pretty insistent that I am ok. The Dr told me off saying that that was how preeclampsia kills people…because they feel fine and think they can be out of hospital. So, anyway, I am pissed off at being held here. Big time.

The other thing that pisses me off is that the Cafe/Gift shop downstairs only sells trash magazines — no Economist, no computer mags…just Parenting and PBL papier tabloids… I have finished one novel and am starting another today…

Anyway, I have a much longer post to do, but seeing as I pay $4 an hour for very public intermanet access, I’ll wait until I either get home, or scam a laptop where I can dial up or something from my room. So, whilst I am sure you’re all awaiting my next post with bated breath… too bad bud. If we end up having a king prawn instead of a baby you’ll probably hear even less…

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
