32+3 weeks.....Labour has started

hello. well eventful week. Wednesday i went in to day unit with contractions. rushed to labour ward and they tried to slow labour. by saturday 1pm they had told me they managed to slow preterm labour and i was being discharged. i left the hospital being violently sick and telling them my contractions were worse.

well..... few hours later at 2am i woke to horrific pains. couldnt get hold of maternity ward or hospital as lines were down. so at 4.45am i decided to make my way in as i couldnt stand it any more. 5am i was rushed to labour ward and the registrar told me he could try stopping the labour again...... bit pointless really. i know my body and he was coming. by 6.56am baby Charlie was born. 7 weeks early. weighing just 4lbs. still in shock.
