L&D trip today... (xp)

So after my appt today I went over to the hospital to sign my admissions paperwork for the big day. They used to have admissions downstairs, but now there moved it up to the l&D floor if you're a maternal patient. I really didn't want to go up there, but what could I do? So up i go and sure enough here comes the screams through the walls of some poor woman pushing her baby out!! Ugghh why did I get myself into this again lol?!?! I mean, I've been through all this of course, but it really hits home seeing this floor again, the beds, the nurses, and of course hearing the screams... God help us all lol...

Does your hospital not let you preregister online? That is how I did mine. If I had to go to the floor to register and had to hear that screaming I'd probably freak!

I did register online but I still had to go in and sign a few things. They prefer you to do it that way than to come in and have to deal with it when you're in active labor!

Urgh. I swear my whole L&D last time I didn't hear the neighbour mommies at all. Hope the walls are as soundproofed as well at this hospital. I, by the way, growled - couldn't do it again if you asked me to, but I couldn't stop. I am very proud of myself for not swearing the whole time not even once (which is quite amazing considering I have quite a pottymouth).
