  • The NHS just make u wana scream dnt they? How awful for u 2 have to go thru all that, then in the end be told "oh we must have made a mistake", idiots. At least all is okay tho and u can continue ur pregnancy knowing that all is fyn. Kerry xxx
  • What an awful scare, like pregnancy isnt hard enough with worries etc, but at least you and baby are ok! thats the main thing.

    Also at least it shows how quickly they come into action if they think there is a problem, kinda reasurring in an odd way?!?!
