22 weeks pregnant today

I always do my updates for the week on a Monday as it's the day that we move into the next pregnancy week, but today's update is filled with such mixed emotions.

A very good friend of mine who is also pregnant with a singleton (1 week ahead of me) was admitted to hospital last Friday after her waters broke at 22+4. She is hanging in there and so far the baby is still doing OK, but she is going through what we went through almost 3 years ago with Matthew.

Premature Rupture of the Membrane is a terrible thing. It comes suddenly and there is often no reason why. It is devastating, heartbreaking and truly one of the most difficult times a couple can face.

It breaks my heart to see this, I know the pain, the emotion and the roller-coaster ride of ups and downs that her and her husband are now going through, and I wouldn't wish this on an enemy, let alone a very close friend.

So for today I'm not going to do the update, I'll save that for later in the week.

Today I just want to wish her and her husband all the best and hope that they can come through this difficult time together.

My thoughts and prayers are with you both.
