Polyhydramnios. It is a medical condition describing an excess of amniotic fluid in the amniotic sac. The effects of this include breathlessness and premature labour. Approximately two months to my due date, my waters suddenly broke while I was doing some household chores. It was almost unbelievable that I thought i might be having a miscarriage.
I was taken into city hospital in Nottingham in an ambulance. I was then given some injections that were capable to delaying my labour so that Joseph in order to better his chances. Well, after 3 days in hospital, joe was delivered through an emergency C-section because I was such an excruciating pain that doctors felt my life could be in danger if the operation wasn't carried out immediately. I was given full anesthetic so I didn't witness when joe was delivered if you know what I mean. Doctors told me that he wasn't breathing when they brought him out and they had to resuscitate him.
