Mad Scientess Jane Expat
[Tags|, , , ]

Yesterday was a little more exciting than I'd planned. I did not, in fact, make it to London for work. Instead, I learnt the following.

  1. If you are a pregnant woman and you fall over in a train station, even during rush hour, people tend to get a bit worried.
  2. Trying to convince people you don't need an ambulance because you're fine (by being unable to walk due to pain) doesn't seem to work.
  3. Hearing ambulance sirens outside a train station and clocking that they were for me now ranks in the top three Most Embarrassing Moments of my life.
  4. Riding in an ambulance is an experience whose repetition I'd like to minimise in my future life.
  5. The NHS carries on being amazing. Special plaudits to Birmingham City Hospital Maternity Triage for a thorough checkup and scanning the baby.

[I'm fine - well, sort of. But if I'm a bit tired and flaky the next few weeks - even more than I have been lately - I apologise in advance. Baby is fine (definitely).]

Okay you left out the most important bit of information we need in assessing the seriousness of this situation! Did you fall because you're clumsy, or was it something scarier like passing out?

Either way, glad you're okay!

A little from column A, a little from column B. Also, I appear to have an abdominal injury (probably from carrying the toddler around), which apparently decided to go HAHA HELL NO when I tried to lift my rucksack. :/

Yes, having an ambulance is embarrassing I can vouch for this.

Glad you and bump are OK. Just take care Hugs.

"Embarrassing" is the Britishy understatement way of talking about it. "Absolutely mortifying" is closer to the truth.

Thank you. I'm doing my best to stay calm and not exacerbate the pain (the latter is aided by taking as much paracetamol as I'm allowed).
