Hospital...

Sarah
I had a mw appointment at 10.30 for my anti d jab and they decided to give me an antenatal app whilst I was there instead of going back next tues for my 31w, I'm 30+3 today when she checked baby with the doppler I knew something wasn't right straight away, it wasn't a continuous heartbeat and it kept skipping a beat so they wanted me to go down to the hospital for a trace and to be checked over. Off I went for my app at 1.30 only got out at 4.30 baby was still dropping a beat every 5-8 beats. After about 45mins on the trace I had to wait for the Dr who hadn't got the page so it was ages until she came down to the day assessment unit. She was happy enough that it wasn't anything major just an ectopic heartbeat and 'just one of those things' and that baby was moving enough etc. Stopped at McDonald's on the way home as I hadn't eaten since 10am I was starving! So relieved everything is ok after much worry.
