She delivered her baby at 28 weeks-ish ... I can't find her thread to see how her and baby are doing sad I posted on it, but can't see it in 'im on' and when I do a search it looks like it might have been deleted?

Can't stop thinking about this lady bless her! Can anyone help?

It was deleted. Red flags raised apparently.

FortyFacedFuckers Sat 27-Dec-14 20:25:02

Watching as I have also been looking for her thread for an update.

Theyvallgone Sat 27-Dec-14 22:17:19

What sort of red flags? I can only assume bad news as the thread itself was so supportive sad

PuggyMum Sat 27-Dec-14 22:19:01

Me too I was looking in on the thread for any updates.

MrsPear Sat 27-Dec-14 22:19:44

Red flags?!

LuckyLopez Sat 27-Dec-14 22:20:25

It means they thought it was a troll.

Isn't "red flags" usually code for we suspect its bullshit?

Nobblys thread got deleted because apparently they had some concerns. I posted on it regularly from early on and was sad to see it.sad

What the hell confused she posted shots of her maternity notes IIRC shock

I remember the thread & posted on it, as I had a premature baby born due to low fluid volume.

I did wonder what had happened. You'd like to think people are genuine & there was nothing from the medical side iof things that didn't ring true.

Can't have been a troll. Maternity notes, pictures of newborn. Must have been a privacy concern of the OP I imagine

divingoffthebalcony Sat 27-Dec-14 23:29:05

Well, in theory anyone can get hold of photos of notes and a baby...

BUT I find it hard to believe she wasn't genuine. I was actually worried that something terrible had happened and she asked for the thread to be deleted.

I have never read the thread you mention, but there have been trolls in the past (here and elsewhere) who have used other people's photos to support a fake story.

WannaBe Sun 28-Dec-14 00:27:43

Anyone can lift a picture from the internet and claim it as their own. A picture means nothing and wtf would someone post their maternity notes? hmm

There have been trolls in the past who have posted pictures of their babies only for them to be outed as someone recognised the pictures from news stories online. One even had a picture of her dead twins on her fb profile and all over bereavement sites on the internet. for months. until someone challenged her and she finally admitted to having made it up even though mn had banned her months previously for being a troll.

It was only a small part of her notes, to show a UTI was detailed, which she thought was the or part of the reason she went into early labour. It went untreated, or not treated quickly enough IIRC.

Perhaps a legal reason to why the thread was pulled, she was thinking about making a complaint.

I read that thread.it had troll written all over it.

HollyJollyDillydolly Sun 28-Dec-14 00:35:12

I was wondering what happened to the mum and baby too sad

northernlurker Sun 28-Dec-14 00:36:34

The sad fact is that people do troll about the very saddest things and topics such as prem birth are SO easy to troll about because of the weight of info available on line. Anybody can sound like an expert with a bit of effort and anybody who's been in that situation would find such threads hard to ignore.

ouryve Sun 28-Dec-14 00:37:22

I've known of trols who, within the space of a couple of years have had several stillborn premature babies with heat defects (all under different user names, of course, and sometimes several at the same time, with different names, posted about on different forums) and have done things like lifting birth stories word for word from people who really have been through the wringer.

If the story has been nabbed from elsewhere, of course elements of it will seem plausible.

WannaBe Sun 28-Dec-14 00:44:21

there have been multiple threads about prem births on here over the years. The vast majority have been trolls iirc.

SoonToBeSix Sun 28-Dec-14 00:48:54

That's really upsetting I was planning on visiting her as she said she was at my local hospital.
Why do people troll about prem babies etc ? I don't understand.

Allisgood1 Sun 28-Dec-14 00:57:44

WTF?! I completely believed her.

RainbowInACloud Sun 28-Dec-14 01:03:54

Didn't a MN actually visit her or am I confusing that with another thread?

There are loads and loads of troll threads about at the moment. It's really irritating.
