So today has been rather stressful. We were off on a family day out when we were involved in an accident, nothing major but still shaken up. As im 36+4 we took no chances and came straight to A&E where they gave my 3yr DD the ok and checked me and baby too. As iv been having quite a lot of tightenings since the accident im now on the labour ward for 24hr monitoring. My neck/back are sore which im sure will get worse tomorrow but for now its a night in hospital sad hoping i can manage some sleep at least

Goodness, how awful for you all, I hope the tightenings ease off soon, and you can get some rest.

Hope.you're doing ok op. I know someone who had an accident when she was 30 weeks and started having full contractions. They managed to stop them and she went to full.term with her baby.

Bloody scary though flowers

SeashellHoarder Mon 08-Aug-16 08:41:13

That's good, do you have someone to help with your dd when you get home?

Wishing you a speedy recovery. X

Yes seashellhoarder my OH has taken the day off so he can look after her but she is really good and will probably just want to cuddle with me on the couch.

I had one at 32 weeks, the baby had been head down til then but the crash made the baby turn breech! Thankfully she turned again and we went to 40+3

SeashellHoarder Mon 08-Aug-16 11:32:04

That's great, take it easy, it must have been quite a shock for you, even if you don't feel too bad.

SpecialAgentFreyPie Mon 08-Aug-16 11:38:24

Oh you poor thing! That must have been terrifying.

Definitely get lots of cuddles and snuggle with a boxset flowers

SeashellHoarder Mon 08-Aug-16 14:53:30

How did the scan go? Are you home now?

Jenjen85 Mon 08-Aug-16 15:03:58

Didnt need a scan as saw consultant and he was happy with the monitoring. Just waiting on a dr to discharge me hoping not too much longer

SeashellHoarder Mon 08-Aug-16 15:34:46

That's great, hope you're home soon.

Jenjen85 Mon 08-Aug-16 17:29:33
