Okay, hello! I am 15 years old. 27 weeks and 4 days pregnant. This is my second night in hospital because I had suspicions of preterm labour. I have really bad lower back pain, achey legs, leaking a trickle of fluid or watery discharge every now and then and before this all started I had a really painful stomach ache. This hospital I'm finding really isn't helping, all they have done is an internal test to see if my waters had broken which they hadn't. A few swabs which they still haven't told me anything about and 3 loads of urine samples which all came back clear. But still said they are going to treat it as some sort of urine infection. They kept me in anyway due to the pain, and have now decided to just give me the steroid to mature my daughters lungs. I have had my first dose and will be having my second dose tomorrow. I have been getting cramps and sharp pains when I walk around and I am struggling to breathe. I felt a lot of pressure on my bladder earlier which has since gone. I tried to check myself to see if I am dialted as I really think that's something they should check. I don't know anything about it so followed a step by step guide on the internet and I can for two fingers all the way in and quite deep but then again I could be doing it wrong. I get tightening every now and then which I believe is contractions although there not painful. If the pain persists I really want to demand a c section for 32/33 weeks. Earliest. Do you think I would get anywhere with this? I am so so small and tiny and I have been experiencing so much pain especially in my ribs constantly. I just want this baby out. I feel it would be so much safer for me and her. I live in the UK by the way.
