For the last 3 months or so I've been keeping a secret. A secret that make my husband and I really happy. It is something that we've been wishing and praying for the past year.
Yes it is true and you might be guessing it already if you've been following my blog.
The test was positive and it said the below at the beginning of April - just before Easter:
Since we found out our life was a bit busy. First i went by myself to Birmingham to the Blogcamp, then for Easter we went to Romania for a week and only a week ago we came back from Majorca.
As I'm over 30's my doctor scare me with my chances of having a baby with Down syndrome. I was so worried up to the day I had my scan.
Also, the first couple of months been quite bad...very bad nausea, vomiting and tiredness. All this was reflected in my blog too. Felt really tired in the evening after my work day finished.
Now I'm almost 16 weeks and my bump started to show a little bit.
Today however I got really scared that my water break!
While in the toilet I had a discharge out of my "you know where I mean" side and panicked. First I put on a pad and when I saw that I could still feel stuff coming out...I thought that I'm leaking my amniotic fluid slowly.
I called NHS after my call to my GP failed and they told me to rush to hospital or if I can't walk they will send the ambulance....I burst in tears!
My belly was hurting as well even though not bad. To tell you the truth it still hurts now. My boss rush me to the nearest hospital - University College Hospital at Euston.
First we went to A&E. Then sent to Early Pregnancy Unit for a scan and after to the Fetal Medicine Unit and Maternity. Here I was finally assessed by a midwife and doctor. They listened to the baby heart and even if it was really hard to find the baby they told me it was fine from that point of view. After the doctor assessed me in some other ways - including an internal one and said that there was some kind of discharge or even maybe amniotic fluid before but there was nothing leaking at that moment. I mean my pad and my underwear were soaking wet and it wasn't pee!
She acted a bit weird and said that if the pain continues or i notice there is more discharge/clear liquid to go to my local hospital which is St George's Hospital and to my own team of midwives, Ah and she also mentioned to rest and take it slow!
I mean what kind of rest is she talking about???
I'm still in pain. A diffuse pain and feel very tired and I'm wearing a pad. I do hope all is going to be ok and that tomorrow I will feel a lot better.
I really want for this pregnancy to go well and to give my daughter a sibling.
I've been searching online about amniotic fluid leakage and they say that sometimes the amniotic liquid can come out slowly. Apparently they say it is quite hard to prove at is amniotic fluid leaking and sometimes is just missed.
I will definitely take it more slower from now on.
Did any of you ladies had the same kind of experience?
I would live to hear your thoughts and maybe put my brain to rest?
I guess nothing is certain and we just need to hope for the best.
