Ok so hands up those whose spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening in the Labour Ward triage, just me then, well ok I know that isn’t true as it was packed. Before I cause any panic, I am fine, Peanut is fine and Andy survived the trip, as I mentioned yesterday I had promised my midwife that if I had any other symptoms to add to my high blood pressure I would head straight in well I started having a really bad headache at about 3pm yesterday even though I had spent the day resting and by half four it was still as bad so we called triage and they said come in, so seven and a half hours later we were released, my blood pressure had risen again but had started to go back down although not all the way back to where it should be but Peanut was monitered for 20mins and showed that he/she was more than fine so they kept an eye on me for a bit and took some blood and thankfully decided rather than waiting for the blood results that I could come home. They did ring back with the results to say that the bloods were fine this morning and just to take it easy.
Although it was a bit of a wasted journey we did learn several things, firstly make sure that the lift at the Maternity enterance is working before you get out of the cab otherwise you have to walk a long way! Wear as little as possible as the entirity of Maternity is like a sauna. Take your own pillow, takes snacks and drinks and a good book. The most improtant thing of all that I learned is that they have some wonderful midwifes who took great care of me and am feeling a lot more relaxed about going in now:)
So I am back to taking it easy so I know I owe people e-mails I will try and get back on again a little later but I am trying to keep my time on the computer short between putting my feet up.
Oh one last thing, I don’t know how many of you remember but when me and Andy went to Greenbelt last year I got a chance to meet up with Anne to knit and now look at what is happening the year I can’t make it
