Actually, my colleagues in the PhD program I teach in came over for a combo end of the year party/baby shower for me. They came in, brought a ton of food, set up our house for the party, came and talked to me on the sofa, had fun themselves (I hope!), cleaned up the house, and left us a ton of food.
It was the highlight of my last 5 weeks of hospitalization and bed rest, if not longer than that. I did take the full dose of anti-contraction medicine before they come because I knew I'd be excited and probably contract. I actually only had a couple of contractions during the party that I could obviously feel. But otherwise, I didn't feel like I needed to be concerned.
Instead, I had fun. I saw my friends and colleagues. I saw live people. And it was wonderful.
