Yesterday at 5pm I had a bleed.
I went to emergency.
I called Steve but he was at the airport.
Picking up big bosses and there was nothing he could do.
I called my lovely Ob and got some reassurance and 8am appointment.
I called my Wom and got some “calm”.
I was admitted at 5:30pm and didn’t see a doctor until 10:50pm.
No one even checked my bleed.
I called Ob and he told me to go home.
Nurses wouldn’t let me leave.
I was left in a bed bawling for roughly 3 hours.
My eyes are still puffy and my lips are cracked.
I called the maternity ward and they wouldn’t see me cos I was under 20wks.
I stopped crying.
Once I saw Doc he said Doppler wouldn’t work as I was under 15wks.
Ultrasound was unavailable at night.
Something I asked for when I arrived.
I’ve never cried so much in my life.
I’ve never seen Steve so worried.
Doc requested a blood test but that was it.
I told him I was going home and to sign paperwork NOW.
11:40 we got home.
Woke at 6am.
Got to Westmead Private at 7:30.
Dr Seng did ultrasound straight away…
… thank goodness!!!
Cheeky Little Mez danced about taunting Dad & Mama.
We could finally breathe.
I had a bleed in Dec & Jan (thought it was my period).
I should expect more to come.
We’re renting a Doppler, know any good companies?
On other (still baby related news) I’ve been put on semi-bed rest (off work) for a week and told not to do much at all… blogging is ok. As soon as we left the hospital we drove to work and gave my boss my resignation. I have to give 2 weeks notice and thankfully the Dr Cert is for a week, meaning I only need to use up 6 hours of leave. My boss was really great, though I’m sure she was swearing in her head.
Mum and Dad arrive for another visit tonight. Dad has to go away for work so I’m babysitting Mum for Dad and Mum’s babysitting me for Steve. It’s worked out rather well. It’ll be nice to have some company if I’ll be stuck at home too. I may bore her to death with baby talk though…
In summary, I’m ok. Little Mez is ok (14 wks today). Steve is stressed and tired. I quit my job and Mum is coming. Oh and I’m craving a Large Red Rooster Strip Sub Combo with salty chips and Lift for the Drink… do you think they’d deliver?
