What an Experience

Evening all......

Whilst the wife is resting I wanted to share something...

Well where do I start. Firstly hope everyone is doing well, I'd just like to share our experience ( not that we hope to repeat again hopefully) since this group has always shown great support.

So as most of you will know.... the wife is 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant after a FET done in January, all has been going really well.

So this afternoon, got the usual lunchtime hello, how's your day going love" call from the wife, only this time it was the most frightening call I've ever received from her.... with a tremor in her voice, she had told me that she had a heavy bleed and was distraught, at this point, I was thinking the worst, but remained calm, and she told me her PA had called the ambulance as she was in no fit condition to go A&E herself as the wife was in alot of pain.

Ambulance arrived, took blood pressure which was normal...

So we ended up in A&E and after several hours of waiting around, with allsorts going around in her head, and mine too. We eventually got to see the early pregnancy unit consultant. Who told us they would be doing a scan...

My heart at this point was pounding a thousand beats, whilst trying to remain calm and being there my beautiful wife......

And finally we got told whilst the consultant performed the scan "there's your little one waving and kicking and everything is fine "... those very words and the moment I saw him or her on the monitor, we both wer so happy.

It just so happened the bleeding, although rare can sometimes happen due to old blood vessels

( I could get more technical but won't)

Wowsa, what an experience we have had today. Although we are going through NHS and Dispite the bad press they tend to get. Today just proved to me, how privileged we should all feel that we have that service.

Thank you all for your continued support and taking time to read this post. I hope everyone else is doing just fine
