On Sunday afternoon I was taken to LW with contractions painful and 5 mins apart...been in and out the week before with midwives saying I was 2-3cm. LW said I was 5cm (2 internals) and advised stay on mat ward till 2 mins apart.

Got on mat ward...had yet another 2 internals 5 hours later...told I was ONE cm!!!! Got very angry, asked for registrar and confirmed at one cm. Was in very very bad pain and had old blood looking discharge after. Was this my show??

Now getting erratic but quite painful contractions and sporadic "old blood" discharge. Due on Friday. How do I know when to go in again and can I refuse internals?????
