at the end of my emotional teather! where do i go from here?
I was coming back from the shops before and my dog was in the back of the car, i picked him up to take him the 2 step journey to the front door which i do absolutely every day with no problems but no... the little shit wriggled and jumped and ran away!! i left my front door wide open and ran after him, he ran through the estate and out towards the very very busy main road.. i ran after him... he ran along the side of the road then didnt even think to run across the road... all the cars stopped and started hurling abuse at me for not having him on a lead (would i fucking intentionally not put my dog on a lead!! no way!! hes never done anything like this before) i then pleaded to a woman to help me, she screamed at me then said no, then a couple of school teenagers passed, i screamed at them to help me, nope they said and walked away!! by this time he was off.. i couldnt even see him!! i couldnt breath and was crying histerically and no one stopped to help!! i had lost all faith in the public... how couldnt they help a pregnant lady that was going histerical?? i know for sure i would!! i was just about to give up when i noticed a huge caravan park so i shouted down to a man ''is there a little dog down there??'' ''yeah'' he shouted back so i headed down.. when i got there Archie was still running round mad round the caravans.. i asked the man if he could call him so he managed to get him into his garage and grab a hold, he then tied a big peice of rope around his collar... i owe this man sooo much!! he was soo lovely!! i cant believe i let this happen!! i came straight home and locked him in the kitchen in his cage. I cant bear to look at him! i was sure he was going to get run over as there is soo many busy roads outside of our estate! he has always been very good for coming back when u call him and just generally staying where he is told but this time i cant believe it!! i can hardly breath now with wheeezing off running and i feel so drained and ill! i was already feeling shite before all this. I then phoned my OH who didnt have a fucking care in the world!!!!! he just said oh well aslong as he is back!! not ''OMG how are you?? is the baby ok?? is Archie ok?? what happened??'' just '' oh well atleast he's back!!'' i feel so down and furious right now!!!!!!!!!!!! no one apreciates me and i feel shit cause no one would help a (nearly) 7 month pregnant lady, they could see i wasnt just some nutter walking their dog without a lead! im petrified i have harmed princess... could my histericalness and running have shocked her or anything? i havent felt her move at all since i feel soo alone!!!!!
aww hunny thats not nice to have to experience on your own. If you're feeling insecure about bubba have something sweet or an ice lolly and see if she moves, if not then phone your midwife. Always better to be on the safe side. Hope everythings okay xxx
Thanks hunny, im an absolute emotional wreck, shaking and everything... it was awful i just had visions of him being hit... i cant even look at him and its like my OH doesnt care one bit for me or the dog. I laid on the hard floor before and put hand on tummy and she kicked a little bit thank goodness, poor little princess! what am i going to do with my dog, i cant go through this again!! he is chipped but still i am 100% shocked he didnt get run over the way he was going! xxx
Oh no, what a horrible thing to happen! I bet you were torn between not being able to run and not wanting to leave the dog to get hurt or lost! i really don;t think I could have run after a dog like you did, well done! I'm glad at lease one man thought to help you, can't believe some people!
I'm sure lil one will be fine, she has her fluid to protect her from being bumped up and down while you were running. Try all the usual to get her to move, laying down for a while, cold drink, surgary food....if your still worried call your MW for advise.
Thanks hunny! i dont know how i done it.. im not fit by any means, think instinct or stupidity kicked in and i ran after him... he wasnt going to stop for me at all so i had to follow. They always said that if his type of dog ran away to follow in your car and they would stop and jump in, not a bat in hells chance he was stopping for anyone, and if that star of a man didnt grab him by the kneck he would still be going now... i just cant bear thinking about it anymore.. ive now took up worrying about princess xxxx
Oh my gosh hunny *hugs* animals are so daft arent they. Try and relax now, make yaself a nice drink and have a snuggly bath and put ya feet up. Little one i'm sure will be fine. But if ya worried id call ur MW. Sorry uve had such a shit time, the public in britian these days are so nasty x
its stressful to go through something like that even when you arent pregnant so i can imagine how you are feeling now
take the rest of the afternoon off to put your feet up with a nice (non-alcoholic) drink to try and chill-ax a bit. If you are still worried about your baby girl then you can always pop down to your hospital, although she is probably just sleeping all that adrenaline off that she would have felt from you.
I am glad that you managed to get your dog back though...it all could have been alot worse. although i dont envy you for having to live with the ppl around your way. they all seem a bit nasty!!
aww hun you poor thing im not suprised your shaken!!!! how awful carnt believe no one helped you grrrrrrrrr im glad you got him back though the only thing i can say is just even from the house to the car pop a lead on him, mine has done this before he normally will just walk by your side then one day he was of and he would not come bk just kept going i had to run out in the road waving my arms around to stop cars to stop them hitting him little shit he was in the bad books for a few days but im also so thankful he didnt get hurt. Take time to calm down hun you will be in shock. Im sure your baby is fine just monitor over the next few hours xxxxxx
aww thankyou guys im here.. i think im just in shock grr i just cant believe no one would help, and they spoke to me like i was a peice of poop on their shoe!! we are from a lovely estate, really nice and if he had of stayed in the estate im sure people would have come out and helped but the bugger ran into the really shitty area. I couldnt believe the woman that nearly hit him started shouting at me, i was pleading with her to help me saying im pregnant i cant run please can you call him and she just screamed at me he should have been on a lead.. sorry love but i dont actually walk my dog round the house on a lead! it probably was my fault for carrying him from the car but then he is normally so placid. Im getting a good few kicks now and i have let the dog out of the kitchen, he knows hes in the bad books so has taken to laying on a cushion. Im sure i will be all over him later thinking what could have happened but at the minute im just in shock, i really didnt think he was coming back. This year has been soo shitty to my family! first we lost our little cat.. he had a fit and died on the bedroom floor.. was only 3, then i miscarried at 10 weeks, then my grandpa died suddenly, my gran was diagnosed with terminal cancer, my great gran died a couple weeks after my grandpa, my mam has had to move out from her husband to care for my gran! the only positive things were getting our pooch and falling pregnant with princess.. the best thing in the world!! im scared of our luck! i just want 2010 to come and bring us soo much better luck and have little Abbi here safe and sound with me and her daddy! sorry for the ramble! xxx
