I suffer from seizures and had one about an 30 minutes ago. Normally I have some warning so I know to get on the floor in a safe place. I had no warning with this one and when I came around, I was on my belly. I'm terrified. Should I go to the hospital? DH (my full time carer) has gone to his brothers for a couple of hours. I have no credit on my mobile phone and no landline. I can't get hold of him. I also can't telephone for a taxi. None of my neighbours are home. My only option is to ring for an ambulance (which I can do so free off my mobile phone)

I would go in to be certain...because the lack of oxygen (seizures) can affect your children...but see that's just me, I go in for everything just to be sure! And you will have an excuse to see them on an u/s but to be safe than sorry I would go..

I would definitely say go. I passed out a few times due to low blood pressure with DS, if I would've fallen on my belly, I would've immediately gone to the ER.

Ellie, do you have any friends/family that you could email (they get their email on their phone) who could call DH for you and tell him to come home?

To update, husband came home about 10 minutes after I posted. We're at the hospital now waiting to be seen (on DH's phone)

good idea! .. and i'd suggest getting a landline, with your condition it sounds like it's safest to do so

Just got home. I was seen, they checked for heartbeats, found both which is wonderful. I asked for an ultrasound but they said I didn't need one. I was in and out in 10 minutes after being seen.
