See SWNS story SWBRbaby; A mum was urged to terminate her pregnancy when her waters broke at just 20 weeks and she was told her baby had less than one per cent of survival - but now he is thriving. Little Chester Rice, now nine months old, was born weighing just 834g, or 1lb 8oz - less than a bag of sugar - a whole ten weeks after mum Ann's waters broke at just 20 weeks. Mum-of-three Ann, 36, from Cardiff, Wales, was told she would miscarry naturally within 48 hours, and was sent home from hospital with antibiotics. And when she didn't miscarry, she was advised by multiple doctors to terminate her pregnancy, due to the risk of her contracting sepsis. Ann, who is also mum to Connor, seven, and 19-month-old Riley, said receiving the news was "horrific" - but she and husband Chris, 38, took the decision to continue the pregnany.
