I have been in bed all day……….
I had my first pregnancy scare last night, I was up all night with pains in my abdomen. It felt like period cramps but with sharp stabby pains at the same time. I didn’t want to wake Dylan up as he has a lot of work at them moment and needs his sleep so I tried to keep switching sides and sleeping through it but I was constantly being woken up by pain.
The pains were still there when it was time to go to work so I called in sick and then decided to call the emergency hot line. The midwife that answered the phone was extremely nice and helped to calm me down, I was of course imagining worse case scenario.
As there was no bleeding and the pains weren’t constant she believed that they where just bad round ligament pains, I have previously had RLP in the 1st trimester but apparently our little bub is just starting to grow a lot bigger a lot faster causing sharper pains.
I was instructed to take some pain killers, have a nice long shower and then try and go back to sleep. I did as instructed and woke up at 1.30pm feeling nice and rested with no more pains, clearly she was right and I just need to relax and trust that my body knows what it is doing and everything is on track.
I am hoping that is the one and only time I will need to call the emergency hot line but as I am an extreme worry wart I am sure I will most likely call again in the remaining 24 weeks.
Did you ever have a slight freak out like me whilst pregnant?
