The weekend started off really lovely, apart from my hip suddenly giving up while in town, hope I am not getting SPD. On Saturday we went out and had lunch and done a bit of shopping and then in the late afternoon we went for a walk (my hip was better by then) through Avenham Park and went to Frankie and Benny’s. Was lovely! We all enjoyed ourselves, Miss A especially!
I had so many plans for Sunday but none of them happened. I spent over 6 hours in hospital. Sunday morning was going OK until I sat down. Without going into too much detail, I suspected I was leaking amniotic fluid. So I called NHS Direct who told me to get myself to A&E asap, preferably within an hour. I had no phone charged and I had only just got up so no chances of that happening so it was more like two hours. I went on my own, by taxi, as Miss A would of been bored and I was feeling OK in myself just that particular issue.
I saw the air ambulance take off, first time I have seen the helicopter be there. Was impressive. However I felt sad seeing it as it was obviously going to somewhere where there is a person in very urgent medical attention. Hope that person is OK.
So I booked myself in with A&E and waited about an hour and they told me to go to primary care. I waited about two hours there and they told me that they suspect it is my amniotic fluid and I am best going to the gynaecology ward to get checked out. So off I went and spent a short time in there before getting checked out and after they ran some tests and fortunately it isn’t amniotic fluid. Thank goodness for that! I was so worried, to say the least! They think it could be an infection and they have taken samples to test and should get the results on Wednesday.
I came home and ate cake!
