released. but?

OK so I just was able to be sent home. Since they were successful in halting most of the contracting. I'm still on strict bed rest. But my question is the nurse said she could fit one finger when checking me does that mean 1cm?? My nurses were complete nasty ******* and wouldn't explain anything and were just in a hurry to get me out I felt! Its been 3 years since my last sucesful pregnancy and some things I just can't remember :/ and my Dr wasn't even available it was some other horrid Dr I hate and changed from. So can't consult my doc till Monday!

Not so much a question just needed slight clarification I had it correct. Not ready to accept it all mostly. After being condemned with god awful winches the entire time you practicly run out of the hospital. I'm not ready for him. Like I feel I am doing everything possible all the shots and bed rest and I'm still failing! I just want him healthy.
I'm glad I have been able to expierance the care here on numerous occasions so this hospital is out of the question.
I swear the look of disgust they give me when I say its my fourth pregnancy makes me want to vomit. And they treat me like I don't know a damn thing :/ sorry sorta venting.

Hope everything is alright now... Which hospital did they send you to? I'm pretty sure that Spring Hill Regional has a NICU and they have decent nurses there, at least they did the last time I was there when my friends had their munchkins...
