I was getting changed when I felt wet all of a sudden & some fluid came out of my vagina. I waddled into the toilet still dripping thinking that maybe I had pissed myself? But when I wiped it was clearer fluid. Luckily my Mum was over that morning to visit & I told her also mentioning the tummy aches & back pain I'd been experiencing the past few days & she suggested I call the doctors for advice. I had a nurse call me back once I had left a message to get advice & she asked a few questions & was concerned that I was experiencing some form of contractions & my waters had broke. She told me to call my midwife from the doctors or the midwifery unit at the hospital but if I couldn't get through I was to go to the hospital to get checked out. Tbh, I only called the unit (with no answer) & didn't bother calling my midwife (as she probably wouldn't answer her phone) so went straight to the hospital. Bit of a fiasco at the epu as waited for an hr before they realised they hadn't actually booked me in. So I ended up waiting nearly 3 hours to be seen. I got really uncomfortable so the nurse let me lie down in a room. I got seen shortly after by the doctor & she had to do an internal examination which was extremely painful. I had my Mum holding my hand & I was sobbing & part of me feels I should've been more brave about it all. I then had to give a wee sample & they took me into another room to do an internal scan but because I was in pain from the examination they did an ordinary scan & lo & behold LO was doing someraults, kicks, punches, headbanging etc etc & there was plenty of fluid. The sonographer did comment that the placenta looked like it had moved over the cervix (thus maybe causing a leakage of fluid) & that it was something they would confirm at my 20wk scan on the 28th. The doctor was concerned about my stress levels especially at work because I am a store mgr & was told to take it easy. I am sore today & feel quite tired. It's made me realise how I should take it more easily & I think it gave my OH a jolt as to how he needed to be more wary of my wellbeing as he has been quite involved in his hobbies/job lately. Still feel a weepy about it all but should really 'man up' shouldn't I?!
