I didn't have that problem either Emily-Jayne, but I wish you luck and hope everything is okay. Follow your doctor's advice. If I were you, I'd also ask for a referral to an obstetrician (if you don't already have one) for further guidance. Take care of yourself!

I didn't have this but I had the baby lying in a dangerous position that could cause my water's to break at the smallest movement from me so I was put on bed rest for a week to try to get baby to move if he didn't I was to be hospitalised for the rest of pregnancy or until he moved, so the waters wouldn't break. I was told if the waters broke I would be in until baby was borne. So to me it doesn't make sense that you are home but I did have a 19 month old at the time so maybe they were worried I wouldn't be able to stay on bed rest at home.
