Hospital Visit

By now I would of revealed to you all that I'm pregnant. Right now I'm writing this at 7 weeks 1 day. I wasn't planning on doing a post this soon but this little baby obviously has other plans.

Today is 16th November, 5 days before my wedding. I went to the doctors yesterday to try and get help with my morning sickness. I couldn't keep any food down and honestly didn't want to face the wedding that way. After a few tests the doctor found a lot of keytones in my urine and had to send me to hospital. While at hospital I had bloods done and an ecg among a lot of other tests, I also had to have a drip and some anti sickness medicine. I was there for a few hours and thankfully got to go back home and narrowly missed out on getting admitted and staying the night.

This morning we were back at the hospital. They had booked me an early scan just to check that everything was ok with the baby and to put my mind at ease a little. During the scan we first saw the heartbeat. The baby was measuring 7w1d and was 4 days behind what I thought it should measure but everything looked good. I was also showed that I had a bleed inside. I did have a tiny bit of spotting around 5/6 weeks but she said I should expect more. She also said that my body should absorb the bleed and that hopefully on my next scan everything would look normal. I could of had the same with Paige but because I didn't have an early scan so I never knew.

I'm scared. Scared of bleeding.

I'm nervous. Nervous about how I'll manage the sickness and looking after Paige.

During the past week or so I've been so quiet on twitter and on here, I'm hoping people put it down to the wedding and not a pregnancy :) I wanted to keep up blogging and tweeting as much as possible. I wanted it to be a surprise, just like it was for us. Read about how we found out here.

Thanks for reading,

Nicola xx

  1. Ahhhh such a great post to read! Wishing you all the best with baby number 2. I was scared with Layla as I had a miscarriage the first time and we paid for an early scan at 8weeks 4days and it put my mind at ease. I was still nervous for the 12weeks scan and 20weeks still though but it helped a lot!

  2. It is nice to look back on these posts, I did the same when I was pregnant. It must have been so surreal to find out just before your wedding! And nice but nerve-wracking to see the baby at an early scan. x

  3. I'm can't say much other than try not to worry you'll know if something is bad. This post has made me feel like the wally I am ! See I have been pretending I knew you were pregnant and so when you mentioned something pregnancy related too me on twitter I was like yeah yeah acting all cool like I knew all along. I thought I had missed the big announcement when I was vacant from blogging at the end of summer 13. So felt like I was going to be a bad blogger for having not know or found out ha ha ! Ok that's a load of my mind :-P Hope that made sense !

  4. Must have been so scary for you sweetie but so glad you and blob were ok. I had to have an early scan with Harry, which totally freaked me out as i was thinking all sorts, but the thing is (and not alot of people know this), Riley was a twin but the other baby died in early pregnancy and i found out at my 12 week scan. It's good that they're keeping an eye on you though and i hope the sickness settles soon xxx
