you might want to read this. This was my first, it was utterly shocking and rather frightening. When the doctor said that I can expect some heavy cramps and heavy bleeding, I didn't realise that what she really meant to say was that I can expect labour-like contractions and 'turn-the-tap-on' sort of bleeding... All I could do was stand in the shower in awe, and try not to worry too much when the scene quickly started to remind me of Psycho (minus the guy and the knife). Don't have to do that again. Ever.
But at least now this bit is truly over, and the book can be closed. Previews of the sequel in the coming months.
