Can I ask if anyone else winced when Amanda Holden announced that she *just knew* this time her baby would be fine

and a few days later on the front page of same newspaper again she had that accident. Dont get me wrong I dont wish her or any other pregnant lady any ill and I got no pleasure whatsoever in being right about my discomfort at her announcement. But I just remember thinking 'ooh no - please dont say that it seemed to be so tempting fate.

I am really really pleased though that she and baby are ok - I really really felt for her poor poor woman so late on aswell

Where did she say she knew it would be ok?
Linky please.

There's a special Sleb Twaddle section for this, you know. It's not really news, is it?

I have to say (as much as I find AH extremely annoying) I felt so awful for her and Lily Allen and Kelly Brooks who also lost their babies late on in pregnancy - it must have been heart breaking for them.

I get the impression (probably wrong) that she's willing it all to be ok this time round. She's very brave to become pregnant so soon after losing the last baby. Hopefully it will be ok.

No I didn't wince. I just thought I hoped so too. I can't imagine how frightening this time is for her. Whatever gets her through - and no it isn't 'news'!

LeBof I never in a million years would have looked for a ' Sleb Twaddle ' section ! - I thought you were joking - but I did look for a celebrity section but couldnt see anything so thought ah well it was 'in the news'.

And yes Northernlurker maybe it isnt but it was 'in the news' as this section is called.

Are you joining me as AIBU Police BoF? grin

(not just AIBU but any thread in the wrong section)

No worries Madam <withdraws waggy finger>

Yes Trills, it may take a critical mass grin

Surely anything to do with celebrities having babies should be posted in "Celeb Twaddle"?

Yes i did wince! I have lost 4 babies, 2 were after 20 weeks and in the following pregnancies i really wasn't sure that i would end up with a live baby. I sometimes felt stupid for picturing myself with a baby when i felt it could well end tragically again. I know many of my angel mum friends were on edge the whole time too but everyone is different and i think it is good that she is very confident. I truly hope all is Ok for her this time, and Lily.

Agree with you OP.

Thank you Cereal and Genevieve as I explained a bit back I did look for a celeb section but wouldnt have dreamt looking under s for sleb. I realise that now and have been duly taken to task by our new Thread Police Force - namely officers Bof and Trilli grin grin.

Tbh though < looks nervously round for Bof or Trilli > I dont really think its twaddle so dont know whether I would have posted it under there [defiant emoticon] as it did raise a serious issue of how dangerous even late pregnancy still is even in the modern world and even among the privilieged it seems.

Jellybean how awful for you and what a beautiful expression 'angel mums' but so very sad.
