But it's not cooked enough yet

I had contractions yesterday at 3pm til about 4.15pm.
I didn't realise they were regular, but I was on the phone to a friend who was actually timing them and they were every 5 minutes.
They weren't braxton hicks contractions, they were low and painful.
I called the hospital, they were reassuring and wonderful. Thankfully the contractions stopped and I didn't need to go to in.

There's just too many unexplained things going on,
why the high blood pressure for 15 weeks that suddenly disappeared? the anemia? the polydramnios? my baby being small?

I read that polyhydramnios with a small baby can indicate a chromosomal abnormality

I'm scared there's something wrong and it just isn't being picked up on the scans

Why isn't there a help line for pregnant woman who feel like they're about to lose it?

There is nothing scarier than being pregnant. I had pre-ecclampsia with Amy and it was a terrible time. You have had lots of scans and you have had the amazing 3D ones, I really think that they would have seen something if it wasn't right. And when it boils down to it, if there is something wrong, which is highly unlikely, your bub has the most amazing mum to bring it into the world xx
