Terrifying: Amy revealed: “I have to be honest, I didn’t feel it,” which led to her calling her midwife and taking the terrifying shot to the hospital
But admitted the fear of complications “never goes away.”
On Sunday, the reality star said she thought she was about to go into labor after going into “really painful” labour.
Even though Amy was due in April, she figured she might go into early labor.
Describing the fear, Amy said her boyfriend Billy was scared and “panic” but she knew it was Braxton Hicks – contractions and relaxation of the uterine muscle.

“These contractions came on really strong, they’re so painful. It’s like having a real contraction. I called the midwife about it and she said it’s because I’m getting taller and my skin is tightening,” Amy told OK! Magazine.
“It didn’t scare me as much as I’ve experienced before, but I think it scared Bill, the thing with me, when I’m in pain, I just take really deep breaths.”
Amy said Billy was worried they would have to run to the hospital, but she knew it was Braxton Hicks who had experienced it during her previous pregnancies.

Family of six: Amy is expecting a boy and girl with Billy who she has been dating since October 2021
The TV personality recently said her third “whirlwind” pregnancy was very “different” from when she was expecting her other two children.
Amy and Billy, 38, have been together since October 2021, just two months after the mother-of-two split from ex-boyfriend Tim after 14 months together.
During the final season of TOWIE, Billy flew to the Dominican Republic to surprise the Essex star for their first wedding anniversary.
Amy, who shares daughter Polly, five, with ex Bradley Wright, began dating TOWIE newcomer Billy following her split from former partner Tim last July.
She is also mother to Ritchie Jr. from her relationship with businessman Ritchie, but unlike Polly, who is a regular on TOWIE, her son stays out of the spotlight.
