On Sunday, May Bank Holiday 2019, what should’ve been the most joyous 24 hours turned into our worst nightmare. The series of events are so clear and daily I replay them in my mind and the question is why us? I was 39 weeks 5 Days pregnant, having had a smooth & healthy pregnancy thus far.
When I woke up that Sunday morning, the sun was shining and life was good. I had been experiencing some mild contractions but nothing untoward, I still however called the pregnancy advice line. I was advised to carry on the day as normal and to call if the pains were more frequent.
Later that evening, I went for a shower and the contractions were beginning to get stronger and soon after I lost my mucas plug. I called the hospital to inform them I’d like to come in as I had also noticed that I was bleeding and immediately started to worry.
