Hi guys, I am so touched by your amazing messages. I do tend to bottle it up a bit when I am like this, and go very insular. I am under the care of a psychiatrist and have an appointment next month, so hopefully that will help. I spoke to my doctor after my post, and he is loathe to change anything in terms of anti depressants, and pain medication, because of the interaction they may have. I have been off work for a couple of days now, just to give myself a bit of time and space. Hopefully all will be sorted soon. I just want a date, even if it is three months away, I am a bit of a control freak and I just like to know what is going on lol I guess this is the ultimate test in that!

I used to be a control freak and have OCD.

My need for control dissipated when I had HG (like the Duchess of Cambridge) in both my pregnancies. I spent 5 months in hospital with my first child and seven with my second. That made me learn patience and that all things happen for a reason. My body was not my own and I had to learn that nature has a way of making us have things when we need them – not when we want them.

It was one of the most valuable lessons I have ever learned – if not THE most. Everything plays out in the order in which it is meant to be. It’s SO HARD to accept. Please remember, we are all here for you and wishing nothing but the best for you. Try to stay strong and whilst you are waiting, try to get as healthy and mobile as you possibly can – even if that is just lifting cans of beans over your head or walking up and down on the spot. But above all else – BE KIND TO YOURSELF. It’s the second best lesson to learn 🙂
