Mister Choy, the consultant gynaecological oncologist at the MacMillan centre, was very lovely. I have had more blood taken because although the initial blood tests checked my blood cell counts and liver and kidney function and blood sugar they didn't actually check for cancer markers. This is possibly because the first suspicion was an ectopic pregnancy.

Gideon is slightly bigger than a walnut. He's about 7 centimetres in diameter. It's still possible that he's a fibroid or a cyst, and I may need to go for another scan.

I have to go back in two weeks (unless I need a scan) when they have had chance to analyse my blood and have a meeting about me.

So, all in all we don't really know a lot more than we knew yesterday, aside from the fact that Gideon is more grown up than we at first thought.

Two weeks...

I am trying not to panic, but it's really hard.

Here's hoping he's something non-sinister. Will be thinking of you.

It'll be okay; you'll see. And think how much better you're going to feel once you're not lugging around a 7cm wide freeloader.

In the mean time, there's nothing wrong with the occasional private or semi-private moment of panic. No one expects you to be superwoman all of the time... except for you.

We're both thinking of you. I'm sure it'll be absolutely fine, but we've still got all crossable bits crossed anyway, in case.

One of the worst headlines I@ve seen on LDBloggs..... :-(

Anyway a hopefully cheery-up video illustrating how not to panic :-)

These things are often not as bad as you think they are going to be. And even if they are they work out OK more often than you'd think - it now being 14 years since my Mum had emergency surgery for bowel cancer and she's still with us.

I can't do anything but sit here and hope that you'll know as soon as possible what's going on so you and the doctors can take the necessary action.

Really hoping that your Gideon is a lot less sinister than the original-in-Parliament version.

Two weeks is a fuck of a long time to wait though, I would be under the duvet going slightly mad in your position, or ranting down the phone at NHS people.

I'm keeping you in my thoughts Jennie and sending you good wishes.

I'm glad you were able to have this meeting quicker than you expected, but I know how horrible it will be to have to wait two weeks for more information. A small trinket from your Amazon wish-list is on the way to help distract you in the meantime...

if there was something glaringly obvious in your bloodwork, they would have seen it. it is VERY good they're doing further tests, just in case.

i just wish they wouldn't keep you sitting, waiting, for two weeks. if they get a cancellation, they'd have you in quicker. (maybe you could ring them and request this, or have Mat do it for you?)

Cannot really add anything helpful or profound to what others have already said other than to add my best wishes to those you have already recieved.

DON'T PANIC (pretend those are large, friendly letters)

Can't add anything more to the above except that my fingers are crossed and wood is being touched for you, along with anything else that might help.

Buckets full of good vibrations wending their way north. All of us down here are virtually by your side. If my arms were long enough I'd be holding your hand right now and probably squeezing just a little bit too hard.
