hi, i have had probs throughout this pregnancy. i have only seen my MW 4times throughout whole thing (every other time it has been a relief). i have a useless hospital that can give diagnosis over the phone (9/10 times ALL symptoms point to a urine infection without evening testing a sample). the above hospital give you anti-biotics for said urine infection which was actually thrush and made worse! low dull back ache and abdo pains are also a urine infection (for nearlly 9weeks) b4 a consultant decides my muscles are NOT stretching as well as should be and send me for physio. physio was cancelled as physio off sick and the next appointment they could get me was after my due date! i have been made to feel that i am wasting everyones time for being concerned about my baby - high heart rate, reduced movements etc. last weekend i started getting contractions 12-15mins apart, took pain killers and thought no more about it. by monday they were 8-9mins apart and by tuesday the MW at surgery timed them at 7mins apart and MW said i was in earlylabour and baby would mst definately be here by wednesday morning. hospital woudnt see me as not close enough together! told to go home and wait. they stayed at 6-7mins apart all of wednesday BUT stopped 3am thursday and so did LO moving. rang day unit who said try hot/cold drinks to get him to move, if nothing go in. so went in, was seen after 2hrs wait and had all usual checks done and put on a monitor. the monitor was picking up the contractions 3-5mins apart BUT they wernt strong enough for hospital to say i was in established labour yet so sent me home again!!! i am sooooo fed up of being in pain and no-1 listening to me (well you all do but hsopital dont). i really dont know how much more i can take of it! i cant get back in to consultant until next friday (28th) and i really dont think i can cope like this for another week!
