I went into hospital at 9am on a Monday morning because I was 39 weeks pregnant. My water had broken and I was bleeding. They kept me in all day as I was 2cm dilated. It got to 11 pm and they said I could go home. I said I didn’t want to so they sent my husband home. By 12.30am I was having bad contractions so they took me to the labour suite at 5.30 am. My partner couldn’t get back to hospital till after 6.30am so I was on my own until he got there. When it happened they said I wasn’t ready but I saw my baby already on the bed with his cord round his neck which made me very scared. I am due my 5th baby in 12 weeks time so I hope it’s better this time round.
