I was slightly apprehensive about the scan as I have never had an MRI before; I was scared that I might feel claustrophobic and be unable to complete the scan. My main concern however, was leaving the girls! I have never left the girls for any great length of time; sometimes hubbie will take them food shopping or my mum may have them for 30 minutes whilst I have doctors appointments, but every night I have put them to bed; last night was the first night that I was not able to do that.
We are very blessed that Lottie's godmother agreed to babysit the girls; she is someone I trust 100%; she is the lady who helped to bring both girls into the world so I knew deep down they would be well looked after.
As soon as we left the house it felt very very odd not having the girls with me, I felt lost and like part of me was missing; I really did not like it. When we arrived at the hospital I filled out all the necessary safety paperwork for the scan; fortunately I had done my research and wasn't wearing any metal so I was able to keep my own clothes on. Hubbie was allowed to stay with me during the scan which was of great comfort and he kept me distracted as the machine was very noisy. I could feel the magnets pulling on my knee and I had to have it positioned in a brace during the scan so that it was kept in one place. I did find it uncomfortable but overall the scan was not as bad as I thought it would be.
We were back home within a couple of hours and both girls were fast asleep. As soon as Lottie's godmother had left hubbie and I ran upstairs and gave our girls lots of sleepy cuddles and kisses. It may have only been a couple of hours but I felt so lost without the girls! I love my girls so much.
