    First off a massive thank you to Vicky to keeping everyone updated and for keeping me company whilst I was in hospital :hug: :hugs:

    Thank you to all you ladies and your nice messages on Vicky's thread. I just read through them all but I'll thank you all on here. It means alot xx

    So you pretty much know the story, fell down the stairs Wednesday night. Didnt get taken to hospital.. So my Dad and Step Mum took me into A&E on thursday and I was there for a few hours and then they sent me to Labour ward. By this time I was in agony with back pains and tightenings in my stomach. They put me on the CTG over there and confirmed these were contractions which kept getting worse and making me quite teary. So they explained what they were going to do... give me steroids for Leo's lungs and basically prepare me for labour. I was sooo scared and worried :cry:
    So they took me over to delivery suite and gave me steroids and pethidine, which is really good but makes you quite dizzy. They did an internal and confirmed my cervix is still closed which was good. And left me on the CTG over night. My contractions were almost painless but still coming as often as they were before so they gave me more pethidine and steriods and a tablet to basically knock me out. Which didnt work because I had 2 hours sleep with it.

    So basically got moved up to another ward the next day (yeterday) as things were looking better and as Vicky said I wasnt seen from about 10.30am till 6.30pm or something. Had a few visitors in the day to keep me going. Was put on CTG a few more times and had another internal and all was looking ok but I was still getting a few pains so they kept me in last night. I had an ok sleep last night but I was just really upset after Jamie had to go home :( I really really missed him as Im not used to being away from him and he looked awful, he wasnt sleeping properly cuz he was worried. So I basically broke down and cried when he was there cuz I just wanted to go home.

    Finally got sent home this morning by the doctor but he said any slightest niggle to go back in. Ive still had a few tightenings but Im thinking these are just BH now. Im back in on Wednesday for my 34 wk appointment anyway.

    So thank you for all your support ladies. Im just so glad Leo decided to stay put for at least a little while yesterday. My little baby needs baking a bit more.

    :hug:
