It was late on a Saturday evening when we found out we were expecting our first baby, both of us were over the moon! Everything was going well for so long; until one evening I noticed a sharp pain in my stomach, followed by light bleeding. Despite the time, we immediately went to the hospital. They refused to scan me as apparently there was nobody there to do it!
I then had to go home and wait 3 days for a scan. On the day of my scan, everything showed as normal but I knew that my body had started to change - I no longer had any pregnancy symptoms. 1 week later the bleeding had become extremely heavy. I was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, they then checked my cervix and after seeing that it was firmly closed they sent me back home.
The next day at 9pm I had an urge to push and shortly after my sleeping Angel arrived. My advice is that no matter how small the change, ALWAYS get it checked out because you just don't know what it could lead to.
