Amy Childs has admitted she was so convinced she'd gone into labour last week after she experienced some crippling pains in her stomach
Amy Childs thought she had gone into labour last week.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is set to welcome her little daughter into the world in around two weeks' time but was convinced that things were kicking off early a few days ago when she experienced excruciating pain in her stomach.
Writing in her column for new! magazine, she said: "OMG, I had a moment last week where I thought I was in labour! I had cramps and pains and my belly was tightening. I woke Brad up and said: 'She's coming!' I told him to get the bag and get the car ready. But then I gave myself a little moment and realised the pains weren't regular - it was Braxton Hicks again. I'm really worried now. Like, how do you know when you're in labour? How do you tell the difference between Braxton Hicks and a contraction? My midwife says I'll just know. I must admit, I did get really excited when I thought she was coming, so I can't wait to have that feeling again!"
The 26-year-old beauty has certainly had a tough time recently as she accidentally tripped over her dog Leo's gate.
She explained: "Last week, I tripped and fell over the stair gate, which I have for my dog. I lost four toenails and was covered in cuts and bruises. OMG I was in such a panic! I called my midwife but all was OK as I fell on to my side and not my belly. Then my princess was kicking away, so I knew she was fine but I was in so much shock I burst into tears."
