We had another follow-up scan this week – and thankfully like the last time there was no sign of an ‘echogenic bowel’ – everything was normal and as it should be. So that’s it, the consultant is happy and doesn’t need to continue to monitor it! It’s so weird; I’ll always wonder why it appeared initially at the 20 week scan….hopefully that’s something I’ll never get an answer to. I’m happy with that though if it means a healthy baby at the end of it.

I have to say as a public patient, the treatment and care I received in Holles Street was amazing – I couldn’t fault it. I’m under the combined care option i.e. between my GP and local satellite clinic that the hospital runs.

I’ll miss my regular scans though – next time I see this baby won’t be on a screen, it’ll be in my arms ahhhh!!!! Exciting 🙂

So the moral of the story is, if you have a blip in your pregnancy it’s not always going to result in the worst case scenario – listen to what the doctor says and at the end of the day, what will be will be!

The only thing you can do is look after yourself and your baby, by making sure you are eating a good balanced diet and doing some gentle exercise if you can.

Good luck, my fellow pregnant ladies!
