Megan Gale has opened up on Instagram stories about how a near-catastrophic fall has left her bedridden.
The expecting mother retells: "Yesterday I had what you would call a bit of an incident.
"I was going to walk up our stairs and my foot was just placed badly on the step and I rolled over and heard this crunch and tear and went down like that [clicks]. The crunch and the tear was my ankle…
"To say it was agonising is putting it mildly but my immediate and major concern was the baby and if it was OK. The good news is that bub’s is fine and that’s been an absolute load off because the thought of something happening to this little baby was quite distressing as you can imagine."
Megan said she’s still unsure about the condition of her ankle, but that the prognosis doesn’t look good.
"The not so great news is… I don’t know what I’m dealing with. I don’t think it’s just a rolled ankle or a simple sprain because I’ve rolled my ankle heaps in the past and it did not feel or sound the way that this sounded, this was different.
"But until I get the results back I’m not going to know. In the meantime I’ve been told to stay at home and rest which is going to be challenging because I have a toddler."
The model went on to praise her partner, Shaun Hampson, for helping look after her.
"Thank God I have the world’s most supportive and helpful partner who has been amazing. But currently I can’t walk, so it’s crutches for me… or crawling… so yeah stay tuned," she said.
The 41-year-old announced just last week she was expecting her second child. She is currently the mother to her two-year-old son, River.
