Anyone for cake?

Anyone for cake?

Well little pea. There you were; flickering away... exactly 7 weeks today and Mr Emu couldn’t stop those tears of joy just as much as I couldn’t when the consultant breathed a sigh of relief and said: “well, there’s a baby...”

I’ve got to really look after you though. Because I’m at risk of miscarriage. So now I’ve got to be off work this week... I will go out of my mind! But my consultant said something very important... “this part in your life is such a small part. How you get through it and accept you must rest will have impact on the rest of your life”

So I’m laid in bed. Thank you to you wonderful ladies for being with me morning, noon and night. I don’t feel out of the woods yet. But I do feel that their is one hell of a fighter growing inside me.

Aww. Congratulations Mrs Emu, I have been on the lookout for your post. Thank God, your little one is doing well. I wish you the very best and o pray you get to hold and care for your baby at the end of this journey.

P.S. enjoy the break as much as you can. It doesn't come that often even though the reason for it is scary.

Hi Mr & Mrs Emu. I didn't dare wish for cake, but I have a lovely slice of Victoria sponge looking at me, so I'm going to demolish it now!! That's all I have to say, except let's all eat cake!! Diane xxxxxxxxxx

Thanks Diane. As ever your support for us all is amazing. I'd never heard of threatened miscarriage before... is it common?x

Reply

Hi. It sometimes happens following a fall or blow to the abdomen. The placenta comes away a little and causes a bleed. With rest, many of them “stick back down again”, but can carry on bleeding a bit. It can happen spontaneously too. Why do you ask? Diane xx

Reply

That’s what my consultant said I had... I’m off work for the rest of the week. I’ve been bleeding and had cramps and he could see where the bleed was happening from on my scan x

Keep resting and let’s hope it settles down. Diane xx

Completely overwhelmed for the love I've got on here! I'm a bit confused by the threatened miscarriage. I'm going to post a picture later of my scan...It's where the bleed is coming from - the consultant could see it and lifting and not resting will make it worse.

I saw your post title and squealed with delight (bear in mind it’s almost 2am here)

Hubbys head jerked up in shock- I said “emu’s having a baaaabbbyy!!!!”

He rolled his eyes and flopped his head back- 😅 he’s becoming accustomed to my random outbursts when viewing this forum. He thinks I’m crazy but hey ho.

Haha don’t take that as him not caring btw- he actually smiled after to himself. (I’ve told him about your story briefly previously) it’s comforting to us all too to know there can be light at the end of the tunnel. Congrats!!!!!!! So happy for you both and def rest up!

I’m kicking myself for still not resting much in 2ww. Next time round I am going to be on bedrest!!!

Thats very interesting about threatened miscarriage- I wonder if that’s also why I was bleeding. Uff so much to think about.

For now il join u for a slice of (sugar free) cake 😁👏🏻
