I was admitted into hospital at 23+4 after loosing my mucus plug,bleeding and irregular contractions,they said my cervix was opening a little and gave me tablets to stop me contracting. I had a test done that confirmed in high risk of premature labour so they kept me in. I got transferred to a specialist hospital for prem term babies.
i then had a scan which showed i was 'beaking' (where the waters were coming down the cervix) my contractions were extremely irregular and days later there was no progress except continuing to loose more and more bloody mucus show...they agreed to let me go home after a week in hospital and im now 26+3. I have consultants,scan etc tomorrow so will know more but was just wondering if anyone else has experienced thus at all? The Drs told me i would be lucky to get to 30weeks but some women can still go full term.they have told me to be prepared for an arrival any day which was a week ago...
i have had a very anxious pregnancy as from 13weeks i have bled due to haematomas and this is my 8th pregnancy after 2d and nervous and feel very stressed and terrified my waters will just break anytime...

Oh you poor thing, sorry to hear what a horrible time you're having. I'm afraid I can't help but didn't want to leave you unanswered. It's great that you've managed another week with baby inside and though I know very little about this, I know at this stage everyday counts. I guess you've had steroids etc?

There is a board specially for prem babies on Mumsnet so might be worth posting there to hear from mums who have been through the same and can share their experiences.

Very best wishes to you - I hope your little one stays put for a good while longer yet.

Thinking of you thanks

FX you make it to full term! If it's any comfort, one of my closest friends had her DS at just under 28 weeks and he was excellently cared for and is now a thriving little boy.
