Firstly i want to say a huge thank you to toria for updating everyone for me (you are a little star). (Thank you for your text amy) And thank you to everyone else for their kind words.
I dismissed myself from hospital last night, they wanted to keep me in, but I could not sleep on the maternity ward with all the babies and new mummies around me. And i started feeling ill from being awake for 50 hours.
I have had my steroid injections and been prepared for early labour, but everything will depend on what is found at my emergency scan today.
The kidneys have been identified to have problems, so not only am i looking at an emergency premature c-section but also to a baby with kidney problems.
I have my scan with the specialists in london at 12pm (but they normally keep me waiting for 3 hours )
and then i have to report straight back to my local hospital, where depending on what is found at the scan i will either be asked to stay in hospital or told how long i have before they need to get the baby out.
The baby has already been found to have clubfoot and is head is squashed so that shows how limited the space he is inside me already. So regardless, he may have a better chance on the outside.
WHAT THE HELL HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS AWFUL PREGNANCY xxx
I'm so sorry to hear about all you have been going through. Will keep you in my thoughts today and I really hope that whatever problems your baby has with its kidneys they are minimal and can be easily mended on the outside.
I'm sure you've done nothing to deserve this, and have taken the best possible care of your little one. Lots and lots of luck
At least you've made it to 31 weeks. I really hope everything goes ok for you today. I don't know why some women seem lucky enough to have one healthy pregnancy & more importantly a healthy baby after another, and others do not but it seems so unfair!
