I woke up with a lot of clear discharge that had a little streaky blood in it, my back was achy all day. By evening the discharge was increasing and i was getting crampiness in my stomach and my back and thighs were aching. Contractions were every 15-20 mins, some mild and some strong so i rang the hospital up and the midwife said it did not sound like i was actually in labour yet and to call back when the contractions were about 5-10 mins apart. 2hrs later they were coming every 5 mins and i kept feeling lots of pressure so i phoned up the hospital again and they told me to go in for pain relief. We arrived at the hospital at about 11pm and i was given gas and air and examined, they said i was 4cms dilated. The contractions started coming really fast an hour later and i was given pethadine, at 2.30am my waters broke and Sophie Megan was born at 2.59am weighing 8lbs 4oz and 50cms long.
