I’m a little late with this post, but anyway! As you can see from the photo, my belly button decided to pop out….it’s kind of back in now though! Anyway, last week was eventful to say the least! I fell down the stairs on Monday morning – it was all downhill from there! (That sounds punny, but it’s not intentional.)
I saw it happen before it happened – I lost my footing and fell all the way down the stairs. Devin was behind me, his terrified little screams and cries were possibly the worst part of the whole thing. Knowing it was about to happen did nothing for the shock though, I lay at the bottom trying to assess the situation, had I hurt the baby? My legs hurt, a cut on my arm stung like a bitch and my bum was so sore that even the slightest movement was agony. I started to panic and then cry (obviously).
Devin came down beside me, and was trying to kiss my back, still crying. I told him to grab my phone and we rang Daddy. I just wanted Noel to calm Devin down really, of course he had no idea what was going on as neither of us could get the words out to tell him. Eventually I told him what had happened and I said I’d call him back. I was waiting to feel the baby move.
I managed to get up, Devin led me to the couch and I lay down. It was agony. I hadn’t hit bump at all, as far as I knew all the damage was done to me. I waited. I got a kick. The shock started to fade and I called Noel back, I told him I was OK and I didn’t need him to come home. I actually had no idea what to do, I felt like everything was OK but when you’re pregnant you NEVER KNOW!
When I hadn’t felt another kick I called my Mom and told her what happened, she said I needed to call the hospital and see what they said. I agreed I would call my GP and ask what they thought. They told me I needed to get someone to take me in. Long story short, I ended up in hospital and was kept overnight and we ended up finding out some other things about bump unrelated to the fall!
THEN I caught this bloody flu that seems to be taking over the world, gave it to Devin and have been suffering with it since!
So all in all, it’s been a pretty sucky week…with this I have had many (three) uncontrollable bouts of emotion that have just left me crying my eyes out!
So, that’s the update this week! Thanks for reading x
