One more time, with feeling

I'm back at the hospital. This time, I got here by ambulance. We woke up at 3am for little gummy who needed a feed. Something was not right with my underwear. Turns out I was lying in a pool of blood.

There seems to be retained products of pregnancy logged in my ute (pieces of placenta). i bled massively. I have never seen that much blood in my life.

I stable right now.

Awaiting a D&C. Within the hour.

I look forward to updating you on all the great stuff about my gummy girl.

I'll leave you with a picture.


  1. Shit. Shit. Shit. Do updat as you can. I will look upon this sweet girl and give some equally sweet prayers for her mom. Cone home safely and quickly.

  2. Prayers and immense love and many hugs, brave Augusta. We are all holding you in our hearts and thoughts. xoxoxoxo -A

  3. oh no! i'm glad your'e okay. hope you get to feeling better soon and get to hold your sweet little girl soon. She is so beautiful.

  4. Oh no! I'm so sorry you are going through all of this. Sending many prayers.
    She is gorgeous!

  5. Holy shit, Augusta. What an entry into motherhood.

    And what a gorgeous baby. May you ALL be home and healthy soon.

  6. Oh, no, retained placenta is seriously no good. It amazes me that "childbed fever" still exists today in 1st world countries. I'm glad to hear that your case is on its way to a happy ending.

    What a sweet picture.

  7. How scary. I hope you're all better soon.

  8. Oh, oh, oh, this is scary, Augusta. Sounds like it was being taken care of, and I am deeply grateful to the universe and your docs for that. But still .... How frightening for you. I am sending you so many healing vibes, all of Canada won't have so much as a cold for months. But mostly I pray you are well, healthy, and home with gummy soon -- and that this is the end of the bumpy ride. I love you so much. Xoxoxoxoxoxo, Oat

  9. Scary. So glad you are okay and that Gummy is as well. Hoping for some positive non-scary updates in the future. Take care of yourself :)

  10. Oh my dear friend, I am so very sorry! I am hoping that you are on the mend soon. I'm so angry for you- you should not have to deal with this! Gummy is a beautiful angel, and I dream of the day our sweet little miracles can meet. Much love to you!
