Nat so sorry to hear what you are going through but can completely understand as i had a loss at 22 and half weeks and wish i could have had a D & C but i was too far gone, within the year of that loss i had one daughter and then when she was 9 months old i fell pregnant with my 2nd , i too thought my body needed a break but obviously not although i didnt think about falling pregannt again it just sort of happened, and they are very close, its tiring but they grow together and well having two is really not that much harder than having one and the cost isnt so great for two their needs are different and im glad i had then close together and i think you would too.
I know this is probably not how you are feeling right now as i do understand but this is what happened to me and a few others that i know too i may well happen for you too dont ever give up honey coz when you least expect it after a D & C it will happen, and i wish you allthe best for when it does xxx
Hey ladies. What have you all been up to this weekend? It's been a quiet one for us, nothing exciting to report! Though I did manage a long lie, a relaxing bath without archie flooding the bathroom, a brunch cooked for me and a lovely long walk with my doggies, without a toddler holding us up! He stayed home and watched football with his daddy! And a fabulous roast dinner waiting for me on my return! Spoilt rotten! Simple pleasures!
How are you feeling about things now Nat? Been thinking about you a lot.
Well I've had D&C this afternoon and am back home. Feeling ok, way better than I thought so far, but am taking it easy. Didn't go 2 theatre until 4pm and was home by 7.30pm, in time 2 see my little princess b4 she went 2 bed :-).
Just hoping now that my body does its usual quick healing and gets back to normal. No plans to try again for a good while. Will concentrate on Ciara for a while and give my body a rest.
I'm having a pretty tough time just now, and am feeling very stressed out.
Archie's been miserable at the childminders and has come home a couple of times with bruising that was unexplained. Last Wednesday he came home with significant bruising all down his upper legs (whole of one was black and blue with more on the other leg). I asked his minder if she knew where it had come from (it had definitely happened while he was with her) and she had no explanation. Worried he just bruised easily due o a medical condition (you'd definitely have felt these ones if they had happened to you), I made an appointment with my GP and had him checked over. He said he was 100% certain that they were consistent with physical abuse, more specifically, being repeatedly struck with an object. The photos I showed of his previous injuries (yes, I have been concerned enough to take photos) confirmed his initial instincts.
I was devastated. Although he can't speak to tell me, he had been trying to tell me so many times by being so upset in the mornings and when I collected him.
We had no option but to go to police, who have got social work involved and the care commission, and have started an investigation. We spent Friday in doctors and police station, yesterday in police station and today back at doctors.
I am struggling to believe it all, and am not angry yet (everyone else is) - I'm still in disbelief and really quite stressed out about it all. My boss has been brilliant and he's found ways for me to not have to go back to work until after maternity... But I'm not sure that is the route I'll go. I don't know if I can bring myself to leave him with anyone else and I definitely need time to sort my head out - i am exhausted.
Need to keep reminding myself I am also pregnant.
I don't want this to be public knowledge around here, so haven't spoken to many people about it - thanks goodness for my virtual friends! Thank you for reading! Cx
Oh my god Stina! I'm furious for you. How dare anyone hurt little Archie like that. I can't even begin to imagine how you are all feeling at the moment. I take it this Childminder has been looking after other children too? Any sign of anything with them too?
Can completely understand you not wanting to leave him with anyone else now.
Sending you all hugs and hope the person gets what they deserve! X
Oh Windswept, it makes me mad to think of people who are taking care of Archie could even resort to physical abuse! I'm glad you were able to get the dr to confirm and are taking the steps of reporting it to proper authorities so that other children will not be exposed to the same type of abuse. Poor baby. Poor you too! How are you doing now?
How's all the ladies on here? I'm alright, keeping busy with life.
