Meet my new friend

Friday, February 10

Hi guys, this is a non-sewing related post so you might want to stop reading now if you don't fancy a bit of a downer on this bright and cheerful Friday morning( the weather is actually horrible, but never mind).

I had a long day on Wednesday, 3 appointments with various people at the hospital. A midwife, a physiotherapist, and a consultant.

The midwife was optimistic (yay!!). Everything was okay with the growth, heartbeat and movements of the future co-heir of the Dibs Family millions



The physiotherapist was really nice, and she gave me a gift. My new friend.



The consultant was all smiles when she came to call for me, and had to come looking again when I did not energetically sprint after her. The look on her face was PRICELESS!! A cross between shock and sympathy, but more of shock I think. I was using my new gift you see.

A couple of questions and an examination later, she set up an appointment for me with an anaesthetist. See where this is leading to? Well apparently, young Master Dibs will have to be brought into this world earlier than expected because of my condition.





So in a couple of days, I shall be back at the hospital, to have an adult discussion, and some tests I think, with Monsieur ou Madame Anaesthetist about drugs...oohhh, how exciting...NOT!!

    1. Noted. I shall send a text to Mr.Dibs now to bring me a chocolate treat on his way home. I'm thinking white chocolate cookies from Millie's Cookies with some hagen daaz fudge cake. Ahhh, I feel better already,

  15. O Dibs, when I saw the picture of "your new friend" on my phone's small screen's browser I couldn't tell what it was, & thought it might be some kind of hem marker ! How far out was that (especially as I know you're maybe dreaming more about sewing than being able to do it so much). Hopefully it is helping you lots & taking the strain for you. All the best with the appointment, & the consolation is that you're nearly there now - even closer than you thought. Glad all brilliant with Noah too xx

    1. It really is helping me. I used to walk all bent double, which used to hurt my back as well,but with this, I walk more upright. Not really straight, but better than before.

  16. Oh I really feel for you Dibs, you've had a difficult pregnancy. My first baby had to come early because of a condition I had - it was awful at the time but the end result was SO worth all the pain and misery. xx

    1. Thanks Jane. I keep thinking of the end result, and it keeps me strong. I whinge alot less now though...lol

  17. I feel for you! I had SPD too and was in a brace for my last trimester. Would cry sitting in a cafe - which someone had to drive me to and drop me off at the door. Does it sound too trite to say it is all worth it? I had drugs too and they were great - recommend very highly.

  18. Thanks Rachel. I get really frustrated sometimes too, like when I got stuck in the middle of the road once, and could not take another step, and cars had to wait patiently for me to gather my broken body together and push on. lol.

    1. I know exactly what you mean - I went from being very active and walking lots for exercise and doing lots of social activities to almost being house-bound. Mine did go away after I gave birth though - I have my fingers and toes crossed that yours does too. xx
