    well last night i had stomach cramps, the kind u get when u gonna have a dodgy tummy so went to the loo, sat on toilet and promptly passed out. woke up with a swolln face and blood on the floor, I felt fine but exhausted and my lil girl (4) was inconsolable cos she thought i was going away and never coming back so i just went to bed.
    This morning i got up and my mate took me to a&e, i have a 2inch cut on top of my head and a cut by my eye, I have an eye a boxer would be proud of and every inch of my body aches. baby is fine, we heard the heartbeat which is a relief!!!

    That sounds horrible! I'm glad the baby is fine. Did they check iron levels? I have heard that being anemic can cause you to pass out.

    Hope you feel better! :)

    Thanks girls it was caused by low blood pressure. very scary time and also very sore now. I've been told to do nothing for 5 days and to drink plenty of fluid so thats what I'm doing. It is har with 5 other kiddlies running around but my hubby isnt doing too bad a job. I'm taking paracetamol for the aches but surprisingly my head isnt sore xx
