There is something I’ve been keeping quiet for quite a few weeks now. Something which a few choice people already know and something which generally isn’t announced for a while yet until it is safe to do so, however if all doesn’t go to plan I wouldn’t keep it quiet so here goes…..
There my secret is out. I’ve haven’t hidden the fact that pregnancy for me has never been easy – I’ve told you all about my 3 previous miscarriages
and since having my miracle baby Emmy I have had another 2 early ones.
So I find myself on the rollercoaster again, hoping I don’t get thrown off the ride too early yet again.
Already it hasn’t been plain sailing with spotting over the weekend a few weeks ago, a visit to EPU resulting in a huge Diva style strop when after 4 hours I still hadn’t been seen so I walked out. I now find myself just over 8 weeks with a booking in appointment tomorrow – the 17th. I was referred back to my consultant however they now do things differently and you receive a letter to book yourself in – which I have, I grabbed the nearest appointment date I could and was seen by a lovely new consultant at a different hospital yesterday. He was great despite the clinic over-running already by the time I arrived so having to wait hours to be seen, he has drawn up a plan for more testing should this all go wrong and would have liked me to have been prescribed pessaries this time but at over 8 weeks was too late to start – that’s the NHS for you. He then booked me for a scan which was today – here is the result of that scan:
Baby Nicholas number 2. 8 + 2 weeks pregnant with an EDD (at the moment) of 24th October (my Nan’s birthday)
There is a large patch of blood to the upper right of the picture which they are hoping will reabsorb itself – I had this with Emmy too so hoping it won’t cause too much of a problem.
Time will tell I guess, if I’m quiet at times this is why….. feel free to hold my hand as I am rather worried and scared but trying to keep a positive attitude and a smile.
