DD2 has never, ever been one to put things in her mouth, but apparently she swallowed a small, metal nut (like off a bolt) the other day. I didn't see it happen, but DD1 told me as soon as DD2 did it, DD2 said she put it in her mouth and swallowed it, and there is a nut missing that I cannot find.
I called 13HEALTH and talked to a nurse and she said just to watch her and check her poos to make sure it comes out. Then after 3 days if it hasn't been passed go to the Dr as we may need to get an xray done to see where it is.
Anyway, it is day 4 now and I have been searching poos but still no sign of the offending nut. Anyone else been in a similar situation? Would love to hear others stories.
I am already struggling with this pregnancy as it is, and the stress of worrying about DD2 and this metal nut lost somewhere inside her body is going to do my head in! Planning to make appt at Dr tomorrow if nut does not show up in the meantime (but I really have my fingers crossed it deos!)
Any advice and reassurance much appreciated! TIA!
