Olive Garden, Ambien, & Enemas!

How about that for a title, huh?

Last night Adam went and got us Olive Garden for dinner. They had just put the Cervidil in so I had to lie flat for two hours, which made eating loads of fun because Adam had to feed me while I was flat on my back! Holy Indigestion! As soon as the two hours was up I sat up and could literally feel my food move from my chest to my stomach. Never again!

Adam stayed for a while and left around 10:00 pm. The nurse came in and gave me an Ambien to help me sleep. I wish I could tell you what happened between that time and 4:00 AM, but I'm not exactly sure. I do know that the night involved me getting up several times to pee, and me writing a somewhat inappropriate text message to one of my friends at work!

This morning they came in and gave me a "soap suds enema".....

I'm gonna let you guess how much fun that was.

Needless to say, I then showered, put my contacts in, brushed my teeth, and now I'm back in bed feeling squeaky clean....literally inside and out.

Just waiting to start the pitocin now and then my doctor will come break my water! Score!

Update ya later!


  1. Yay for Olive Garden! You could not have picked a better "last meal!" Haha! And an enema? Really? I didn't think they did that anymore! I had to have one with my daughter and unpleasant as it was, it beat that "Oh my Heaven I really am going to poop on the table" moment I had when giving birth to my son! LOL (Although truly, you really don't care - the docs are used to it and all you want to do is to get that little booger out of ya!)

    Have a beautiful day Lindsay! I'm praying for a "knock it out of the park" delivery for you... memorable and safe and healthy for you and your little P! Blessings to you and your new family of three!

    (Ps. I friend requested you on FB. Just so you can see I'm a normal, well sorta normal, mom and mammy and not a blog stalker!)

  4. I take Ambien every now and again when I know I need to get a good nights sleep, no side effects and feel refreshed in the morining. Although, one night my wife woke me up about an hour on so after taking it to go to the kitchen with her, don't remember any of it.
